Re: Other naturalisation

That is what the recent court case was all about. The upshot is you can be out of the Country for 6 weeks in the year prior to your application date. The minister does have the authority to allow for periods longer than 6 weeks under special circumstances (working away) but best to keep it under 6 w...

Re: Next citizenship ceremonies will be in Spring 2020

I applied early Jan '19
Approved Nov '19 but not invited to Dec.

Received my invite today for 2nd March, 3pm.

I don't see many confirmations for 3rd so more invites are obviously yet to be posted or en-route so there is still hope for all those still waiting.

Sorry could tell me if all the bank can do bank draft or?
I went to my own branch and it was deducted from my account (via my debut card). You could try any bank to see.

Remember there is a fee payable to get one also.

Re: Citizenship Passport Question

Sometimes they keep hold of it for some weeks.
They will send your passport back to you though if you request it. They may however request that you send it back to them when they send it back to you or at a later stage.

Mine was sent back to me in registered post if I remember correctly.

Re: Next citizenship ceremonies will be in Spring 2020

If it's the same as me which is most likely (UK citizen), you just send photos and payment only. Am I right in thinking there's no need to get the photos signed by a solicitor at the approval stage? You just need to write your application reference on the back of each. Solicitor/notary not required.

Great. Such relief ! So basically this letter is like an approval letter?
Yes although you won't be a citizen until you have been to the ceremony.

The next letter you will receive is the ceremony invitation.

This is not quite accurate. The Dail has been dissolved which technically means there are currently no ministers.

Can anyone who recently received their approval and request for €950 tell us if there was a deadline to send it within the letter?

I'm sure this will be either overturned or new legislation will be brought in.

Unfortunately one thing for sure is all applications will be delayed until sorted.
