Re: Citizenship by Descent Loophole?

I would be surprised if this were possible. (I also registered in the FBR too late for my children to claim citizenship.) So I would be interested if you can find the answer!

BTW, your grandparents don't need to be naturalized; they are deemed to be Irish citizens already.

Re: Irish Citizenship through descent - FBR questions

I notice that people make posts asking for information on eligibility and details regarding the application process only never to return again. This is unfortunate but might signal that they were successful and so have no further need for the forum. That's a common problem with forums. It would be ...

It depends on where you apply. Last year the London embassy was only taking a few days.

Re: Clarification Regarding Irish Citizenship through Descen

Is your father alive? If yes he should register in Foreign Births Register, and claim his Irish citizenship. He is definitely entitled to it, as the grandchild of a citizen. Then if you have a child that child is also the grandchild of a citizen, and is entitled to register in FBR. This may apply o...

Re: FBR - Document Discrepancies

I still think you need all three marriage certificates, if only because it says so here: https://www.dfa.ie/passports-citizenshi ... ign-birth/

It may not seem logical, but neither are the rules about who can be a witness.

Re: FBR - Document Discrepancies

My grandmother also changed her date of birth, meaning that her marriage certificate had the incorrect date (age) on it, but it wasn't a problem for FBR. However, she had a rare surname, which might have helped confirm identity. I also supplied all three marriage certificates, although the instructi...

I guess that's because the status of "kids born after the resumption" is obvious, so they only spell out the case of "kids born before the resumption"?

Re: Resumption of British Citizenship and future children

The confusing part is the requirement of " the child was born before the date of resumption; and" (does this mean that after my resumption, any future children will no longer be british citizens by decent?) I don't think so. According to the BNA (14(1)(g)), if you are a British citizen by descent n...
