When they ask for your confirmation of address, if we've moved will we have to provide proof of address? ie. bank statement?
From what I remember from others who have had this situation you just email them a scanned copy of a bank statement etc.

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Hello-I am a recent applicant and wondering how long it typically takes to receive "Email acknowledging receipt of documentation Balbriggan". I have postal confirmation of delivery on July 12 2021 but have yet to receive an email from FBR about my documents. I see in other posts that others seem to...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Today, I encountered a problem. I'll tell you that my father's birth certificate only has the names of my grandparents and does not show the birth date of my grandparents. FBR said: there is insufficient evidence and failed to pass the application for the time being. I would like to ask ~ is there ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

fbrlad and all: I reread it. You do need to send them a government-issued photo id, but if you live outside of Ireland, it can be a certified copy. It does not need to be the original. It's not an Irish passport that they ask for, just a state-issued photo id. It also asked for my Irish passport nu...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

how do you all stay patient? I'm worried that because my dear mother lied about her age on official documents, and that her birth certificate reads "baby" Rock ( my grandfather was away and my grandmother did not pick a name without him there I suppose. Rock is the surname) and does not actually ha...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Your application is going through the Foreign Birth Registration process and this can take some time due to the complex nature of the process. You will be contacted by us when there is an update regarding your application. That's what they said to me。I wonder if I will miss the application Did you ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I think you didn’t need to send in all those documents aside from your parents FBR certificate. As in, did you send in previous generation certificates from grandparents and great grandparents? From my understanding if the previous generation is on the FBR then they don’t need to go further generat...

My 1st-time paper passport application is finally showing a status of "Processing" in the Passport Tracker. However, the estimated issue date is 17 months away. Really hoping the system will recalibrate and shorten that time estimate. Good luck to all who are waiting. My timeline: FBR: Application/...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I think you have misunderstood the reason that applications are fast-tracked due to pregnancy. It's not a reward for having had sex, it's because if the prospective parent is not granted citizenship before their baby is born, that baby loses their entitlement to Irish citizenship forever. Well, per...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Yes I have complained about the delays, and yes I have tried to do something about it. The attitude of the Irish Government over FBA has been contemptuous beyond belief. They are now apparently only giving consideration to those having had sexual intercourse. This is both unfair and strange - for a...

Can someone tell me that your pregnancy certificates are all in English? After all, I live in China, and the pregnancy certificates in hospitals are all in Chinese.
Yes mine was in English. You'll have to get a verified translation sorted out before you send it.
