Re: Citizenship applications from 2017 pending approval

You can go through the immigration control without GNIB card - that’s not a problem. I’ve done it five times. My concern is that with the abolishment of re-entry visas, some airlines may not admit a person on a plane if they don’t have a GNIB card or re-entry visa. In my case I was travelling by Aer...

Re: Critical Skills Employment Permit

I’m more confused now. Did you get a working holiday authorisation initially? If yes, then when this period is over you are legally not allowed to work. Simple as that. The rules on work permit clearly indicated that it takes a few months to process the permit, and you cannot work until you get the ...

Re: Spouse visa?

I want to bring her to Northern Ireland. I have been a UK citizen from birth and was not sure if having an Irish passport and bringing her through this way would be cheaper and quicker/ Well in this case you cannot use your Irish passport to exercise your EU Treaty Rights. The UK domestic law appli...

Re: Spouse visa?

If you live in Belfast, you apply to the UK Government. The question is whether your spouse can apply under UK domestic law or under EU Treaty Rights. Apparently EU Treaty Rights are much easier and give your spouse more freedom in terms of visa-free travel to other EU countries. As you are a dual n...

Re: Renewal GNIB EU Fam stamp 4

So what is your question? If you didn’t have health insurance, you didn’t have it. Try to explain that in your application and make it clear that you now have it. You can stress that no matter how difficult your situation was back then, you did not rely on state funds (I hope you didn’t) and you wor...

Re: Ibc visa

The length of your Stamp 4 depends on the role you play in your child’s life and also your immigration history. Per INIS website, the length of permission can be anywhere between 6 months and 3 years. If you hold a proper Type D join family visa before you come to Ireland, you will likely get a long...

As long as you can prove that you are *joining* her, you will be fine. Bring the hotel bookings, flight tickets and marriage cert of course. Most border controls don't even question you as long as you say anything about EU treaty rights. Some airlines like Ryanair will check for visas. They may ask ...

If it's a written request by mail, they are obliged to provide a response.

If you are not getting any mail to chase you for the documents after the initial 30 days, that means they have received them.

I guess that: - you got a job offer from a company in Ireland - you are currently outside Ireland - you need a visa to enter Ireland Depending on whether your employer is a trusted partner, your work permit can take 1-3 months to be issued. There’s no express service. Once you get your work permit, ...

Re: Absence from the state

You are not traced by a stamp on your passport. That was back in the early 20th century. We have computer systems now. All outbound flights are saved in the PNR in the airline database and the government can request to see PNR in certain scenarios (residence, tax purposes, naturalisation etc). For i...

Join Spouse Type C visas are for EU/EEA family members who are exercising their EU Treaty Rights. As the family member you are joining is an Irish national, you cannot get a Type C visa. You should apply for Type D visa as correctly suggested by the embassy. However, if you have a Type C visit visa ...
