Re: EUFAM to Irish Citizen spouse

I’m a British citizen so she’s going to be transferred from EUFAM anyway sometime soon because of Brexit, to one likely not to offer such benifits like visa free travel to Europe. Correction, She actually has the EUFAM permanent residency card now since a few months ago Meaning she’s been here for 5...

Re: Naturalization application after 5 years residence

She can apply for citizenship based on Irish Associations. This would reduce the requirement to 3 years. However, it will be up to the minister to decide whether the 'association' is strong enough. Since it's just 3 more months till April, I would strongly recommend that she applies based on her ow...

Yes got approval this week. After multiple email enquiries, a couple of TD letter and finally a solicitors letter.
Applied oct 2017.

Good luck to you and everyone else on here. Id advise you to make a move with a TD or solicitor otherwise your leaving it down to the mercy of a short staffed INIS.

Contact a solicitor which specializes in immigration and naturalization ASAP and ask them to send a letter querying the application. This has produced some last minute approvals
