How did you contact web chat? I went to https://www.dfa.ie/passports/contact/, scrolled down to a "web chat" area and was refreshing the page regularly until a box with speech bubbles changed from "website agents are busy" to "available". Have your application number handy, you will need to enter i...

Re: First time passport application

I just find it unusual as paper application requires a stamp. Thanks I just went to Garda station today and he only filled out the parts he needed. Si...

Re: First time passport application

Gardai would know what to do. Regardless of whether it's a paper or online application, Gardai would always carry out the same checks and sign/stamp the application in the same way. I think they would place a stamp and put their name or Garda Number in that stamp - at least this was the case a coup...

It looks like it is happening.Can not find it yet on official inis site though: It is expected that 4,000 applicants currently waiting on naturalisation will have had an opportunity to gain citizenship by the end of March the Department of Justice said.

Re: Affidavits for approved applications and next ceremony

Everyone has to check if the email addresses given in the application is correct so that we dont miss the email. Email address is not a very used information in the process so there is every chance that there would be lots of confusion or error from both sides :) fun Good point, since it was entere...

Just received a reply to one of my emails to ISD asking for updates on the next ceremony. There is a slight difference in their usual copy-paste reply this time: "A review of the pilot is underway and consideration of that review is now in its final stages.", and "A decision on how to proceed is due...

Re: Citizenship ceremonies on 3rd July 2020

I agree Christina. While the Department said it was only a pilot virtual ceremony, there was quite a bit of fanfare and media coverage of this. It would seem strange to hold off on rolling this out, particularly with virtual citizenship ceremonies rolled out in other countries like UK, US, Canada, ...

Re: Citizenship ceremonies on 3rd July 2020

The article you are referring to says that gatherings over 5000 people will not be allowed. If they keep the number below that we might have a smaller ceremony, or a ceremony without guests in July.

Would be so much better (in terms of coping with uncertainty) if they posted citizenship certificate in the same way they do for children applications.Maybe for limited period until we are back to normal life.
