You cannot backdate a GNIB/IRP stamp. A stamp is always given from the date the permission was issued, except for refugees.Lottie67 wrote: ↑Wed Apr 14, 2021 2:47 pmWhen I first arrived in Ireland in September 2017, I was 16 years old. I had a Visa type D extended to December 2017. I turned 17 in January 2018. I didn't apply for GNIB stamp 2A until July 2018. I was a secondary school student and I attended the full-time academic year of 2017-2018. I have proof of attendance in Ireland for 2017-2018 in school. My father wasn't made aware of the fact that I needed a GNIB stamp to reside in Ireland until the end of my academic year in 2018. I have missed the GNIB stamp 2A from January until July of 2018 which is nearly seven months. I will be applying as a dependent adult for naturalisation using my father's reckonable residency but I am afraid that this gap might affect the application. I can prove that I was present for this period of seven months. Can I contact the department to fill in that past period of 7 months with a stamp now in 2021? What should I do?
Waiting seven months or whatever period needed to cover the time when you were not registered is a very good idea.Lottie67 wrote: ↑Wed Apr 14, 2021 3:35 pmSo would you advise me to stay an extra seven months with my 5 years of residing in Ireland with reckonable residency? I know that a stamp 2 or 2A provides no reckonable residency. I will be applying as a dependent adult so I will be depending on my father's reckonable residency for the naturalisation application. The reckonable residency term confuses me since I have none as a stamp 2/2A holder.
