Re: Financial requirements for marriage permission to remain (Stamp 4)

not sure how true it is if you get less hassle for being American or Canadian for example, i am from asia myself and had no hassle at all last year when registering with my Irish spouse and got stamp 4 on the spot for 3 years in burgh quay. Only provided passports, bank statement and marriage certi...

Re: Financial requirements for marriage permission to remain (Stamp 4)

Ireland is a civilized country that does not discriminate on a basis of nationality or ethnic background. In fact, most US citizens are now considered high-risk visitors and are currently banned from most countries. This is the funniest comment I've read all day. There are countless anecdotes avail...

Re: Financial requirements for marriage permission to remain (Stamp 4)

You won't need to prove income, just take yours and your spouse's passports, marriage certificate, and proof of address. You're missing the point. OP is not an EU-citizen, and they're not married yet, therefore will have to prove to the Registrar office that it' not going to be a marriage of conven...

Re: Financial requirements for marriage permission to remain (Stamp 4)

Are you an American citizen? Ireland has a curious process for stamp 4 applications that centers around their determination if you're in a sham marriage. Typically if you're from a low-risk country such as the US, Canada, or other developed countries, you can book an appointment with the Burgh Quay ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Erm the commenter who indicated that birth registration processing is much more efficient in most Asian countries is right. In the rest of the world, foreign birth registration and transmission of citizenship is a serious matter treated with urgency, even during covid. It's typically dealt with by t...

Re: EU settlement card - work and live in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is part of the UK!!!

And I guess it is not also certain after Brexit? I’m not sure what you...

Re: EU Settlement Scheme family permit before travel vs. code 1a stamp on arrival

So using the egates can't make you a visitor against your will! The downside is that if you need leave to enter and don't have, it is unlawful if not illegal to enter without leave to enter. Richard W, I didn’t quite understand this part. The way I read it, I’m entering as a visitor if I used the e...

I had contacted UKVI and was informed that It would be more ideal to enter with a family permit but because I was from New Zealand I could enter as a tourist/visitor. And then I would b...

Re: from Northern Ireland to Rep. of Ireland

You make a good point about the European directive. Indeed, if the entries are legal, there’s nothing stopping you from crossing and going to the nearest GNIB office and making an application to reside. - I believe you’re looking for a long term D visa which is for spouses of Irish citizens. http://...

Re: Northern Irish Father, can I claim Irish Citizenship

I suspect it’s always a pleasant surprise to learn that you can’t apply for Irish citizenship because you’re already an Irish citizen! As the previous poster pointed out, all you need is a passport.

Many thanks, did she move to Canada from the UK? How was the sponsorship process? James She moved from Ireland, but it’s pretty much the same process - she had to apply to the Canadian high commission in London. The first 2-3 months they determine the eligibility of the sponsor (Canadian), and then...

Re: EU Settlement Scheme family permit before travel vs. code 1a stamp on arrival

I had called the Eu settlement scheme hotline to ask them when I got my COA if this meant I could work. They said that as I had entered as a tourist and not as a family member with a family permit, I would still be considered a tourist until I recieved the pre settlement status. This sounds accurat...

Re: EU Settlement Scheme family permit before travel vs. code 1a stamp on arrival

As an Irish citizen, showing residency in the UK is a matter of being in the UK for >1 day and having an address. So she was able to apply for pre-settled status during a recent trip to the UK since her dad lived there and she used his address. She’s back with me in Canada now and we’re wrapping thi...

Re: Living in UK - Married to a Canadian - How to Immigrate

Your Canadian spouse can sponsor you. There are no income requirements, but you will have to provide extensive proof of your relationship history which should be straightforward if you have pictures and such. I sponsored my wife several years ago - and I started at the sticky page on the another web...
