What do I do if I am living in Ireland but have not yet been issued with a notification of intention to deport?
The time frame for issuing a notification of intention to deport can vary from applicant to applicant. Generally, it will be issued in approximately four to six weeks but, in some cases, it can take a number of months.
If you are living in Ireland and your visa has expired or become invalid, and you haven’t yet been issued with a notification of intention to deport, you can appeal to the minister outlining your circumstances for leave to remain in the state. We can help you to begin proceedings.
Do I need to apply for residency as the parent of a child who is an Irish citizen?
Yes, you can apply for permanent residency in Ireland. Applications are granted depending on whether applicants have not been involved in any criminal activity during their prior residency.
Do I need to apply for permission to remain if I am married or civilly partnered to an Irish national?
If you are a non-EEA national, you must apply for permission to remain in Ireland even if you are married or in a civil partnership with an Irish national.
How do I apply for Irish naturalisation/citizenship?
To apply for naturalisation/citizenship, you need to have lived in Ireland for at least five years out of the last nine. All applications are decided on with the absolute discretion of the Minister for Justice and Equality. There are strict rules about applying for Irish citizenship.
