Does that mean I need to get my e-bills to get stamped in the office of that provider? A good question, I actually sent my prin...

Citizenship approval - Do we post the original GNIB Card?

Hi everyone,

I have a simple question, on the letter it says:

If you are a holder of an Irish Residence Permit, you will need to provide your current in-date IRP/GNIB card.

Does this mean I have to post a copy or physical card?

Thank you!!

Kind regards,
