Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Thanks for updating the list Sulia! Interesting to see the spread here. Makes me wonder how they are processing these, seems to be very much luck of the draw. I'm sure if you were recently asked for address confirmation then that is a very positive sign. Based on date of application, you should be ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Thanks DonaMarie, But I am still waiting to pay the fee, mine hit's in Nigeria. Its just a waiting game right? Regards I would not worry too much about the fee situation. Some applicants are charged the minute their electronic application is received - this happened in my case. Others have reported...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I apologise if this has been asked before but are, in anyone’s experience, straightforward applications being processed quicker i.e. ones with a clear paper trail any faster than more complex ones. Or, does it appear that they are just working systematically through the pile? The problem is that we...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Well guys, my wait is over. I received my FBR certificate and documents this morning. So it would appear August 2018 applications are being processed and it’s quite quick once you make it to the top of the pile. Finding this forum was a massive comfort when I’d sent off my application but not heard...

Re: Witnesses for a FBR application

When I did mine it was easy as one of my mates is a GP, and they were still acceptable then. However, I've looked at the online guidance and it appears there are two criteria: (1) the person must be a lawyer/commissioner for oaths/justice of the peace/police officer/magistrate/judge and (2) must ei...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Wow, that is interesting. Where overseas are you living? Wish I'd have done mine that way!! My wait is 10 1/2 months now, as we keep saying... should be any day now! I applied from Malaysia. I am happy that you received your certificate relatively quickly. I had a similar experience from applying f...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

However, having read about some of the documentation some people have been asked to submit, I wanted to ask your opinion. My father was widowed when my mother died, then remarried and divorced before his death. Even though this second marriage is completely irrelevant to my application will I have ...

Re: Irish FBR supporting documents

Didn’t the 1935 act require irish born father. Yes. However, in this case we did not get any information regarding the grandfather, so it was at least possible. The father did not have to be the one who registered the birth - the mother could. There merely had to be an Irish born father prior to 19...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I can shed some light on this for you. Whenever you have posted anything that I find unacceptable, I have immediately posted a forthright reply and, just as quickly, the mods have deleted both of our posts - probably before you've even had a chance to see my reply. There's no need to suspect the mo...

Re: Irish FBR supporting documents

Thank you so much!!!! This makes total sense now as to why we cannot find a FBR for my mother. Thank you!! I thought you were certain that your mother had been registered through FBR by your grandmother? As Rbs3 correctly says under the current legislative framework there is no necessity for your m...

Re: Irish FBR supporting documents

I am applying through my grandmother who was born in the Republic of Ireland, she did the FBR process for my mother when she was young but my mother ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Last call to DFA was not promising, mid-June told should be 'final approval' by end of the month. Yesterday, told will be the full 12 months. No consistency and appears DFA have no accurate timescale to work from. Disappointing considering when I applied I was told 6 months, this changed to up to 9...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Sulla: how long before it showed in the tracker? Mine appeared in the tracking system about 2 hours after I handed it over. By the time I got to the train station and thought to check, it was in there. However, I would not be shocked it it takes longer in your case. The embassy was very quiet on al...

My documents were looked over, copied and my original supporting documents including my FBR certificate were given back to me. Was also told that the passport trac...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I know it's my fault for not registering with immigration and taking forever to do the FBR, I know I did this to myself. I never got any study visas or anything because I assumed the FBR would pull through faster than what happened (me faster and office faster), and thought 'why would I get a visa ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

One thing, on the guidance notes and on the website it says you only need to send two proofs of address but I have seen people post about needing three (annoyingly after I sent the package). Does anyone have a link to where it says you need three proofs of address. Jamie For applicants from the UK,...
