Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Yeah this is what I feared to be honest. If you don't mind answering, what are the details they would require? Birth Certificate, Death Certificate, and Marriage? Can I get official copies sent to me or do I have to have the original documents, i don't know if that will be possible. Thanks regardle...

Thanks for the reply!

Was it accepted and all went well or are you still waiting?
Also, just looking at your post again. You should send off your grandparents documents as well as your dad wasn't born in Ireland so your claiming on the basis of a grandparent being born in Ireland.

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

At the end of the day nobody knows anything because there has been zero communication regarding their thought process on how and when to reopen processing, so your advice to just sit tight and accept the situation is indeed a reasonable suggestion. But so is sending in documentation early, because ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I wonder if the majority of the Brexit related flood of apps are already submitted - perhaps with less demand, the wait times will reduce as they catch up? I think now that the Brexit transition period is over I would expect another rush unfortunately. There are hundreds of thousands/millions of el...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

For those people who have received your Irish passport, did you have to send in your current [other nationality] passport as part of your supporting documentation for your Irish passport? The language on the application seems pretty clear that's required, but I'm reluctant to put my passport in the...
