Re: URGENT: What Does This Mean? C-Visa Application

All non-urgent visit visas are on hold at the moment until further notice. Therefore, the intended travel dates might no longer be applicable. Even if the visa does get issued, the applicant will not be able to use the visa to travel to Ireland. That's why they are asking your friend to withdraw the...

Re: Naturalisation: counting days away / addresses list

Departure and arrival date do not count as absence. When you register with GNIB to receive your stamp, you must have provided them with an address. Then every time you move home, you are legally required to provide the new address to GNIB. Any addresses that you have provided with GNIB in the past m...

The visa process for spouse/dependent visa is the same in most countries. Nobody is allowed to post their own contact details here. You are a new user so you won't be able to use private messages either. You would have to be more specific and explain what you want to know that is not immediately cle...

Re: eutr extended family 5year with childern

How did you get permission to live in Ireland initially? Was that permission revoked? Or did you never have a permission? You would certainly need a good immigration lawyer. Without more details about your personal circumstances, it is impossible to comment what your chances are. However, to be hone...

Re: eutr extended family 5year with childern

Why "no deportations of families are being allowed"? I don’t recall seeing this judgment anywhere. Also having no deportation order doesn’t mean you are automatically entitled to getting a permission.

If OP’s child is Irish, he can certainly try to apply for a residence permission based on his child.

Re: Advice - Join Spouse Stamp 4 Application

The above comment is incorrect. US citizens do not need to apply for anything in advance. For OP's fiancee, just be honest when she arrives in Ireland for the first time. Show the immigration officer your plan to get married in Denmark and then come back to live in Ireland. Better have some confirme...

Re: Long term residency

You are not eligible for LTR. LTR is for people who got their Stamp 1/4 based on work permits. You can apply for naturalisation if you desire. You should continue to renew your Stamp 4 until your naturalisation is approved. Alternatively, after 8 years of your Stamp 4 you can apply for WCATT (Stamp ...

Re: Calculating ansense is it Calendar Year or Year backward from application date

I had a chat with an immigration solicitor friend, and he is of the same opinion that this is based on the application date rather than the calendar year. They had a few rejected naturalisation cases and they were all calculated based on application date. I’m interested to know whether it’s simply a...

Re: Volunteer in ireland

If you are from a country that requires a visa to visit Ireland, then no you cannot do volunteering work for more than 3 months without a proper preclearance.
I am unable to find any information with regards to short-term (less than 3 months) volunteering though.

How silly.... I am really disappointed. That is simply not ...
