Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Hi everyone, I've had a scan through the more recent pages of this thread but can't find the precise answer I'm looking for. I applied online for an FB1A a while ago (December 2019) but have only just managed to actually pull all the documentation together (my sister is applying at the same time, s...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I can't recall anyone reporting a new FBR granted since before Christmas. They seem to be tidying up those in limbo granted FBR but without certificates. But no-one has reported any new processing of applications. Passports were recently reclassified as and 'essential' service and so the twitter fee...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Some quotes from an article in 'Dublin Live' today: "Taoiseach Micheal Martin has said that the new set of rules announced by the Government yesterday could be described as 'Level 3 plus'. " “So that has meant some variation on strictly from going from Level 5 to 4 to 3. You could describe it maybe ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Can FBR return to work on April 12? Have not seen any new announcement of re-opening for FBR or Passport processing. Still seems to be Passports processing will return at Level 4 and FBR at level 3 with the backlog to clear. (Though they have modified the roadmap and it is still all provisional on ...

Came across this video from July 2020 advising re the Foreign Birth Registration process and produced by the Irish Consulate in San Francisco - looks very useful for new applicants.

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

You need Birth and Marriage certificates for each generation and death certificates for your father/grandfather. Ensure you have original long-form Birth certifcates for England as these include the parents details. (The short form only has the child's details.) Good luck - it's good to see posts of...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Hi Colfla, Even though they are not processing I can't believe they would actually destroy post sent to the FBR service. But until you have had your email from the FBR team you are bound to be worrying. Maybe you could try and get some reassurance from An Post - they have a contact page with both a ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Hello Tom, I wouldn't worry if I were you. You are in the exact same position as many on here. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any contact open with the FBR team during the lockdown. I applied just a few months before you in late August 2019 and like you have heard nothing beyond the original...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Thought I would post for the benefit of others. I have 2 siblings who applied separately in July 2019. Both have now received their FBR certificates. Each has had a slightly different timeline because of the lockdowns. I had confirmation of documents received 26/8/19 but so far have heard nothing. I...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I am not going to add my timeline, as I just applied (sigh, let the long journey begin) - but I am curious, there are so many FBR applicants. Is this all in efforts to actually live in Ireland? Or is it mostly due to Brexit? I expect there are a wide variety of reasons for applying for FBR. In addi...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

So the FBR website still says "The processing of Foreign Birth Registrations has been paused until Dublin returns to Level 3 on the National Framework for Living with COVID-19." I understood that the whole of Ireland was now in Level 3. Is that not the case? :| :shock: They seem to update this pass...
