Malika is correct. You need to be an Irish citizen for 3 years and married to your wife for that duration before she can apply for naturalisation as the spouse of an Irish national. Otherwise, the normal 5 year rule applies. I dont like people advising others wrongly, you do not need three years af...

I am not fully aware of the visa rules regarding American's. If I was to assume that they need to renew their permission to remain every year, then your wife would currently be undocumented. To regularise her status, you would have to apply to spouse of Irish national unit as Agniukas stated. Applic...

From what I understand is that even if needed too you would be entilited to housing Benefit in Ireland if you needed it which would be helpful as it would give you time to find a job as its almost impossible to just fly into Ireland and have a job waiting there.

I understand that the EU1 form doesn't ask if you also hold an Irish citizenship but what is the Irish authorities view on dual Irish/EEA using their non-Irish EEA nationality? It is a case of "I don't tell, you don't ask, and I can get away with it?". In the UK, the EEA application forms specifica...

You can apply for a EUTR visa to enter Ireland as the spouse of an EU national, although this isn't really necessary as you are both in Northern Ireland and can just cross the border. Once in Ireland, you have an unconditional right to live here with your husband for 3 months, as per directive 2004/...

Your wife would not be able to apply for citizenship based on her marriage to you (an Irish national) until Oct/Nov of this year as then she will have completed 3 years marriage to an Irish citizen.

There may be a problem under EUTR due to the fact that the EU citizen has both british and irish citizenship. I think Monife's case was similar and she couldn't go for EUTR, but spouse of Irish national instead.... I think that seeing as the OP's spouse was born in Northern Ireland (which is techni...

These principles are based on the Surinder Singh case. In plain English, if you (the EU citizen), move to another EU country with your non-EU spouse other than that of which you are a national and exercise your treaty rights in that country for a period of time, you can return to your home country u...
