Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Congrats Hollyq, I bet it was fab to receive the Irish passport with a golden harp on it. Can't wait until that day comes for me! Seems like in most cases it's taking about 18 months. My British one ran out and that is taking 10 weeks as opposed to the usual 3 - but I can live with that. I guess al...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I'm just off to the Post Office to sort out my UK passport application - seeing as I won't be getting my Irish passport with a golden harp on it any time yet. With all due respect I think you need to search for friends on Facebook for random chit-chat. I don't think anyone here needs daily updates ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Can I please point out that no one's FBR application is guaranteed to be successful and citizenship on the basis of irish grandparents is not an automatic right, hence why an application has to be made and proof needs to be submitted which in some cases is not deemed sufficient enough. So let me ge...

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...

I don't know, post back when you find out please. Once someone in Ireland replys I will post it up on here, They will probably say its an administration fee, which I find a bit steep, but the fact is we was told it was to cover courier fees which we have since learned to be a blatant lie!

@chelsearob77, It is good that you challenged the fee. While the supporting documents might not have left the embassy, it is likely that the passport was sent to and from Mexico. If your wife cannot travel this time round, she could apply for another visa. The visa is for entry. Once in Ireland, sh...

Complain. The visa should have been free. My wife was grated her visa this past Monday so she went to the Irish embassy in Lima to collect it, but the fella that runs the embassy is a bit of a clown & forgot to give my wife back her supporting documents, so once she realised she called him & return...

Others have posted that the EU commission considers reasonable postage charges to be outside of the scope of being "free", ie embassies can charge postage fees. That said, it seems to be quite a lot of money for postage. I would be inclined to ask for a breakdown and justification of the costs. Don...

Who is doing the charging? The Irish embassy or some intermediary? The Irish embassy in Lima, Peru are the ones charging this fee of s/ 350 (£90) claiming it is to cover the costs to send the application & documents to Mexico & back, me & my wife both think the man that runs the Irish embassy in Pe...

The clock for EU starts three months after your first entry for treaty rights. A separate clock starts for non-EU spouse if entered post spouse in terms of deadline for making application, time spent toward five years' residence, etc. So the EU1 form would need to be completed & submitted within th...
