Re: Stamp 4 Support Letter Email

They start processing applications from that date. It doesn’t mean they finish processing applications on the same day. There will be checks with INIS, Revenue and your employer, so it usually takes a few weeks.

Re: Travelling back to Ireland, IRP with INIS

If she is from a visa-required country, she will need either an IRP card or a re-entry visa to enter Ireland. Airlines are pretty strict these days, especially with many countries re-imposing COVID restrictions. The accompany by you is irrelevant in this case, as you are not exercising EU Treaty Rig...

Re: Why do some get an application number and some not?

It is a common practice in the past few years. Nothing to worry about. It depends on INIS's capacity and the backlog. Normally, you should receive the passport back along with the application number. However, from time to time, whenever the backlog becomes too big, they will simply scan your passpor...

Re: When to apply for Naturalisation

There's a difference between 'visa', 'landing stamp' and 'residence permit'. A visa is a sticker in your passport which allows you to travel to Ireland between certain dates. A landing stamp is what the immigration control staff puts in your passport. For first-time arrivals, the stamp will have an ...

Re: Marriage and having Children

Change of marital status is considered a change of personal circumstances, so yes you should notify INIS.

Having a child is not a change in personal circumstances, so you don’t need to inform INIS.

Re: Can I apply for work permit and a stamp 1G at the same time?

If you live in Dublin, have been registered with INIS previously and you are not changing your passport, then regardless of what Stamp you are changing to, it is always done online via the online renewal. The only caveat is that obviously Stamp 1G would cost you 300 euro. Once you get your work perm...

Re: Naturalisation by Association / Extenuating Circumstances

There is no zero natural Irish association from your ancestry. So no.
Even if your ancestry (namely your parents or grandparents) has Irish association, you will need to live in Ireland for at least three years in order to be considered.

Re: Ireland - First time passport applications timelines -2021

For anyone who is abroad and worried about An Post losing your package, An Post currently has a massive backlog to fulfil. Many of domestic packages are being delayed for a couple of days. For international packages it could have a delay of up to a few weeks.

The whole purpose of having you produce proof of relationship is to dissuade people who utilise marriag...

Once she receives the letter for temporary Stamp 4, she needs to book an appointment with Burgh Quay (Dublin only) or local Garda station (non-Dublin) to complete the registration and get an IRP card.

There is a first time passport thread here, but if you want to skip all the complaints in that thread, the question answer is that there is zero chance you would be able to get it before end of Feb, even if you apply on the day you are naturalised.

Re: Cool off Period for short stay visas

There is no 'cooling off' period in Ireland. However, that doesn't mean your visa will be approved. You can apply for the visa, but it will likely be refused unless you have genuine reasons (especially for business purposes). Ireland is small enough that a temporary visitor should not have to spend ...

You don't need to get a new permit if your new & old jobs have the same SOC number. For example if you switch from an IT business analyst to an IT system architect, they have the same SOC number 2135, therefore you don't need to get a new permit. If you change from business analyst (2135) to softwar...

It's a hypothetical question. It hasn't happened yet. Nobody knows what consequences will be there, but there will be retaliations from the EU. Whether that will be restricted to trade only, or if that will impact British nationals & their family members' residence rights, nobody knows.

Only EU nationals and refugees start their reckonable residence from the date of arrival in Ireland. All other people start their reckonable residence from the first day they register with INIS (i.e. the day they take the biometrics). Your start date on visa is irrelevant. It simply tells you from w...
