Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Just applying for my Irish passport now after finally being accepted onto the FBR.

Am I reading this correctly? Do I need to send my full UK passport along with my application or just a certified copy? As long as I have it back within 3 months that's fine but I just wanted to check!

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

If it helps, I don't have any bills to pay (with the way I pay my rent), so my proof of address was just a bank statement, mobile phone statement and a student loan statement. That was fine :).

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Happy Friday to me! Just received the email asking for my confirmation of address. For those wondering, my application was sent on 15th March straight to Dublin, and I received confirmation of receipt on 20th March. So around 10 months for me. I assume the next stage is just to await the certificat...

Today I have received an email saying my application is insufficient (see below). ‘Unfortunately we cannot proceed with the application without the following documentation: 1.

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

This is amazing. Mine was received in March (sent from the UK) and I'd resigned myself to it being mid next year or so given the backlog. Seeing people who sent in February get emails and the like now, I'm feeling excited for the first time!

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Just reading the Timelines thread and the template goes like this: What is the difference between 'application received on' and 'acknowledgement'? I had an email confirming they'd received my application on 20th March, so obviously that is the former. But what is the 'acknowledgement' stage? I thin...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration?

It's no wonder theres lengthy delays if on the applications print on section E it clearly states medical doctors can witness an application yet 8 months down the line people are told they can no longer witness, and are told to resubmit evidence. You would think they would change the forms to avoid ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration?

You're on a forum where people who've followed the application instructions to the letter are reporting increasingly lengthy processing times. If you've still heard nothing in 12 months time, imagine how you'll be feeling then. I'd imagine it would be similar to that holiday-ruining paranoia when y...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration?

Spoke to somebody on the webchat, asking if my manager in a bank would suffice as 'Bank Manager' (seems obvious but I wasn't sure if they wanted an actual Branch Manager). The guy says that they don't accept a Bank Manager to witness the FBR document! In fairness, the link below backs up what he say...

But the contact page of the FBR only lists webchat and Telephone. I can use the telephone since I live abroad, but the webchat requires me to inpu...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration?

Does anyone have any indication as to how strict they are regarding witnesses? I'm struggling a little to find somebody appropriate. I work for a bank in the Digital department - could I ask my boss to witness my application? He's technically a manager in a bank, even if he's not a 'bank manager' of...

To clearify: your parents, the children of irish born citizens to NOT need to apply for the FBR. They skip that skep and go directy to the passport application process. Children of parents born in Ireland or northern Ireland are already citizens. Thanks mate, understood. My parent is not in the pro...

How strict are they regarding certificates? I unfortunately don't have any genuine 'originals', i.e. from decades ago. The death certificate of my grandparent is a 'certified copy', and the certificates I have arriving in the post regarding my parent are from gro.gov.uk, which I assume won't be an ...
