Ask Irish embassy to give your husband a visa with longer validity. My sister got a two-year multiple entry tourist visa after getting two single ones. Your husband as a regular visitor should be able to get one. Stamp 4 would be rational if you decided to live in Ireland, it is only for residents, ...

Re: Bank statements for Irish Citizenship

No. Just fill it in normally and give details of all absences on a separate Word or Excel spreadsheet: dates of each trip, duration and reason. Calculator is very useful to establish if you have enough residence after deducting absences and to know how many days you must accumulate before applying.

Re: Bank statements for Irish Citizenship

Easiest way to check is to use the residency calculator tool. Enter all your permission stamps as per your registration except for years when you were away for more than 6 weeks. For those years enter only the dates when you were physically present in Ireland. You will then get a total of days that ...

There must a reason why you're getting permissions only for one year each time. Maybe you spend too much time outside of Ireland and they see it. I had a permission just for 7 months because my passport was expiring. Next time I was given permission for 5 years. Just ask to give you a longer permiss...

It's not just numbers as each team have different tasks / speciality in the naturalization process.

Re: Can I travel without GNIB but I have visa on my passport

Certificate of naturalisation is not and has never been a travel or identity document.

Your passport is your identity and travel document. If you have an Irish visa, or a passport that does not require entry visa for Ireland, it will be enough.
