Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I was just flipping through my new (UK) passport and at the back there is printed a map of the UK isles, however according to this map, the Republic of Ireland appears not to exist!!!!! I would have thought they would at least outline the whole island of Ireland and then shade in the Northern Irela...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Hi all. I've been reading some posts and I'm wondering whether my documents have been received since I mailed them December 2019. January 7, 2020 I got this email: "Your application for Irish citizenship through entry on the Foreign Births Register has now been received." Some people are describing...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I notice on other threads here that people waiting for naturalisation for extended periods have sent legal notices asking for a decision on their application within a certain time-frame, or have sent freedom of information requests on the status of their application. I don't know if that is an optio...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

The post on the passport service twitter saying they'll have an update on FBR 'later in the summer' is a bit concerning considering it's not even Summer yet. Late Summer to me means the end of August. Surely they can't keep it closed for another 3/4 months only to be able to potentially give an 'upd...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I have to say, the fact that the office is likely now closed again all the way until at least April is absolutely insane. I could understand the office being closed during the first lockdowns, when this situation was new and the whole world was caught by surprise and shut down, but they've now had ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

As much as it is mightily inconvenient for those of us waiting for an FBR I'm not sure we should be criticising the way the Irish government are handling it, especially here. Pretty much every government in the world has faced criticism for the way they have handled things, whether it's doing too m...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

i completely agree-i definitely do not want my paperwork floating around where it doesn’t belong! that being said...each of us did our fair share of hunting down centuries-old documents. SURELY the first thing the staff must do is scan these to digitize them for future generations and applications ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I'm frustrated as well, but I can't figure a way a that the FBR employees could get this work done at home. Imagine our thousands on thousands of important private personal documents floating around between the FBR office to these people's private homes? No thank you! How would they get from the se...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Just got my FBR through after 18 months, but it has got me thinking about my kids. . . . I had assumed as my farther was English and my mother was also born in England, but has recently gained Irish citizenship via her Irish parents, whom I also gained my FBR through, that they were not entitled to...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Dear Friends! I applied FBR through my Irish born grandfather in November 2019. Few days ago I received an email from DFA that now they r currently processing my application. They need new application form and 4 photos witnessed by one of the witnesses listed. That's no problem. But they are saying...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Frustrating to have another closure. I can't help feeling it's a little ironic that a lot of us are here because of the UK's decision and handling of Brexit, and now it's likely the UK's handling of their variant of Covid is going to keep us here even longer! Fingers crossed it's a short one. If th...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

At last, a result! 05/11/2018 - FBR paperwork posted, fee paid online. DFA website said it would take "up to 6 months". 12/03/2019 - Email from DFA confirming they received the application. 20/10/2020 - Request for clarification, they wanted more documentation to prove the chain of ancestry. 21/12/...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Congratulations to everyone whose received their emails/certificates the last few weeks, definitely seems to be speeding up a bit. My application was received on 2nd February 2020, so given it seems that they're currently processing July-September, looks like I can expect to hear something any time ...
