Re: Eligibility to register on the Foreign Births Register

Unfortunately, because your dad wasn't registered on the FBR before you birth you are not eligible.

If your grandfather was born in Ireland you would have been eligible irrespective of your father/ mother.

Re: Citizenship Applications From 2020 Pending Approval

Aha, married to Irish citizens. That might be the key difference. I am still hopeful of hearing something in 2021. :-) Thanks! I know it probably won’t help much, but do you know when (which month) in 2020 they applied? I don't know, did not ask. Both married to Irish citizens and applications were ...

Re: Citizenship Applications From 2020 Pending Approval

Hi Vorona,

I know it probably won’t help much, but do you know when (which month) in 2020 they applied?

Thanks!

Hi All,

I went through some of the previous post, but couldn't find my answer.

Do we have to post the FOI request to the relevant department or can email them instead?

Re: Citizenship delays: FOI and an application for an Order for Mandamus via the High Courts

Thanks Verona. I am just paranoid that if I request an FOI too early that the department will "mark" my application and then delay my application i.e. I don't want to upset them or give them a reason to delay my application :-) Your paranoia is not unfounded. You might be right. The officers in thi...

After how many months did you decide to submit an FOI request? I think you applied at the beginning of 2020 and I applied in June 2020. You've since gotten your approval and I am still waiting on mine. :-) I am just wondering at what point I should consider submitting an FOI. I have no plans of goi...

A veteran of 2 FOIs, I can confirm that in the last 3 years of the processing of my application, no request had been made to any foreign country/authority where I have lived in the last 9 years prior to my application. BTW, I have lived in 2 countries prior to coming to Ireland. Also, the checklist...

For those who got their approval in the last 4 weeks or so, did you get an email like others did (in January and February) or did you get a letter in the post?

Re: Looking information if someone can help plz

Just a questions and an observation: When you applied for EU Treaty did you disclose in your application that you were already married to another person? If you did not disclose this information it means you got your permission based on the wrong information which means if you now inform the INIS ab...

Has anyone else noticed that the INIS is working on a virtual assistant and that we will be, hopefully soon, be able to request an automated status update?

At the moment it is still in beta mode.

Re: Irp but working in europe

You did NOT make an application to SOIN. You simply visited the GNIB to get a stamp. This is NO LONGER the experience for more and more new applicants. They are being turned away and are asked to make an application to SOIN. A typical SOIN application takes more than 12 months, while a typical EU T...

Re: Irp but working in europe

An application based on EU Treaty rights is much quicker to process than an application to SOIN. Yes in most cases an application to SOIN is not necessary, but applicants are increasingly difficult to obtain in GNIB directly without an SOIN application now. Of course, there is no harm trying to get...
