Re: Citizenship Application Driving on Learner Permit

As part of your citizenship application you have to mention all of your communications/incidents that involves Garda.

Not listing all offences might put your application in trouble or risk of your citizenship getting revoked.

Re: Stamp 5 processing time?

Well if it says 6 months, then it will take more or less 6 month :) I applied for Long Term Residency and it took around 4 months. So I believe it will take similar time for Stamp 5.

Re: About the oldest Stamp start date for the Naturalisation Residency Calculation

The main reference point is the first stamp in your passport when you are registered for the first time. The difference is only 4 months so I would count it as October 2022. But you can also try to explain your situation and mention covid time in your cover letter. (if you really want) Thank you so...

You can leave State up to 6 weeks in a year without any problem, this "in a year" has 2 different interpreation and no official answer: 1 year as in 1.1.2021 - 1.1.2022 and other interpreation is 1 year between your immigration stamp date on your passport.

Hi Everybody, Thanks for your answers. In fact, as mentioned by mentalmind, I'm not being asked to give my IRP back.

Re: What happen with the IRP when you get your citizenship?

From my understanding, you don't have to surrender your IRP card when your citizenship got approved, so you can still use IRP card with your current nationality's passport to get on the plane (as airline companies will ask for proof of permission to enter country). And at Irish border, can't you sho...
