Re: Foreign Birth Registration

That happens when AnPost has not yet gotten the package even though a label has been printed. Mine said the same and it took a few days to activate. How long has it been since you got the tracking info to the time you checked AnPost? [/quote] Ah thank you this is very helpful info - i only got the t...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

A bit concerned myself now about something, obviously feel grateful to have got the congratulations e-mail, but got in contact via webchat with the FBR today to ask for a tracking number for my certificate. They gave me a number in return which I put into AnPost - AnPost said they had no record of t...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

There has been movement on my daughter's application! (From May 2019.) I've received an email asking for updated photos! Does anyone know if they accept electronic photos?

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I'm still a bit far off (8th July acknowledgement of application) but does anyone know if the FBR will post the certificate to somewhere other than the address you wrote on the application form in any circumstances? I am a student with a home address (one I used on the application form) and a studen...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Another update on the DFA website, don't have much hope of getting my citizenship this year now with the probable second wave, if there isn't one i suspect they'll maybe start re-processing apps in August?

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Speculation here but was there potentially a huge increase in applicants in March 2019 fuelled by speculation we were heading for a crash out hard no deal brexit? I noticed it had sped up and then slowed down again as they were processing applicants who'd submitted from March 21st. I'm an early July...
