Re: British Citizenship

My another question is, Do I need to show proof of address/savings etc in the UK for my sons passport? What you need to show is that you, as a child's parent, was British at the moment of child's birth. if I understand your situation correctly, you can apply for child's passport with your naturaliz...

Re: Triple citizenship: Dutch + UK + non-EU

No issues with (I assume) nonEU and British.

I've heard Dutch citizenship might require you to renounce past nationality, but there are exceptions when married: consult Dutch website for that.

Re: Reside an additional year or wait until completing just the days stayed outside Ireland?

Thank you for the prompt response. In regard to my previous inquiry, I would like to provide additional information. In one specific year, let's say the travel started from January 1st, 2022, to February 12th, 2022. Let's say my departure from Dublin was on January 1st, 2022, but my arrival in my h...

Re: Residency Requirement for Citizenship

Depends if the year, in which that happened, was the one right before applying. If you've lived in the country for 5 years and on 3rd (for example) year you've gone over the absence threshold (7 weeks), you need to live in the country for 5 years + 7 weeks, so you can cover what you've missed.

Re: Apply for naturalization with passport expire soon

There's no category for naturalized children on DFA website, but adult one does expect foreign passport; I would expect it's needed but it's an assumption based on limited information. Will child still be a minor after 2 years? If you're considering whether or not to renew your child's passport, I w...

Re: Ireland Visa renew- Inis Online- Issue

Other forum members mentioned it before, but never shared how did they fix it.
Trying tomorrow would be the best bet; hopefully the infrastructure would be fixed by then. You can try reaching out to ISD with this, but from my experience, they won't go through the emails in time.

Same here , applied July 2021 and got the passport returned in Nov 2021 and nothing since then.

Re: Citizenship Applications From 2021 Pending Approval

Interesting to observe 2023 timelines - seems like eVetting for them is being requested straight away, at the same time as they receive acknowledgment. That's a positive development as ISD can progress with their internal checks while waiting for response from Garda and be ready to send it off when ...

It slows down the route to ILR a bit (5 years for promise, 3 for talent), but can't recall any other disadvantages from the top of my head.

Same way as a certified copy of foreign birth register entry? Foreign Birth Register (FBR) entry certificate is the same as a naturalization certificate specific to Ireland, so no. If you're on the register, you're entitled to Irish citizenship. Foreign passport, on the other hand, just shows you'r...

Re: British Citizenship

As far as I know, if you got your citizenship, it doesn't matter which way it's achieved. Divorce doesn't lead to its revocation. Your son should get British citizenship by descent as you're a British citizen by naturalization and can pass it to the next generation (but he won't be able to). https:/...

Most likely, it was a temporary arrangement due to covid, now discontinued, hence I'd say no such thing is possible at the moment.

Re: Citizenship Applications Pending Approval Since 2020

Are there general timelines for how long to wait before sending foi / going Jr ? FOI - send this whenever, since it doesn't affect anything; just asks DoJ "what do you have on my file in regards to citizenship". JR - according to forum members, 2 years: see https://www.immigrationboards.com/post202...
