What Our Clients Say
Gibson & Associates assisted me with an application for Irish citizenship by association. While we will not know the results of my application for some time, I can attest that the assistance and advice I received from Kellie and the team at Gibson & Associates was extremely helpful, thorough, and professional. I am very satisfied with the support they gave me and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking advice on applying for Irish Citizenship.
Successful handling of long and complex immigration case
I have nothing but the highest praise for Gibson & Associates – they handled a long and difficult immigration case and won. I was kept up to date on proceedings throughout.
The firm has a great team of lawyers who deal with various complex proceedings and I would personally never hesitate to use them again.
Successful application for family visa
We highly recommend Gibson & Associates Solicitors – they got my family’s visa to come to Ireland. My partner and I got married on 24th December 2015, after returning home in February 2016, I, unfortunately, had two strokes that year. After three attempts for a tourist visa, I was unable to get a visa for my family and was told that I couldn’t travel due to my condition.
After two years and eight months, we decided to contact Gibson & Associates and received help from Sharon Shaw. Within a couple of weeks, my wife and daughter received their visa, arriving in Ireland on 7th November – a day before my birthday! My family is here now for six months.
Thank you so much for your help. If you have a problem with your visa like me and my family, go to Gibson & Associates!
I would highly recommend Gibson & Associates Solicitors for their expertise in Immigration law. I applied for Irish citizenship in 2019 and worked closely with Sharon Shaw.
Sharon exhibits true professionalism by maintaining rapport to me, explaining in details what documents are necessary for a successful application and working with me till the goal is achieved. Sharon’s considerable experience in the legal industry was present from the initial phone call until obtaining of the Irish citizenship. I appreciate her commitment to my case and would like to express my highest compliment for her.
Irish citizenship is a privilege and an honour. I am very pleased to call Ireland my new home!
Satisfied client following Brexit-related immigration matter
I needed advice upon a Brexit-related immigration matter and instructed Sharon Shaw of Gibson & Associates having come across them on the internet. I am very pleased that I did. As a lawyer myself I appreciate and recognise technical expertise coupled with exceptional client care. The matter was completed ahead of time and I was kept fully informed at every step of the process with email and telephone calls promptly returned. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sharon and Gibson & Associates.

What Happens When an Application for Irish Citizenship is Approved?
When an application for Irish citizenship is approved, the Citizenship Division will write to the applicant to notify them that the Minister for Justice has deemed them as a suitable applicant to be granted citizenship or naturalisation. You will then be required to submit two passport photographs, a bank draft to the sum of €950 and your original IRP.
Applicants who have been granted refugee status will be asked to submit their original travel document in addition to the above.
The letter following application approval will also ask you to confirm the following details to ensure that the correct details are recorded on your certificate:
- Date of birth
- Country of birth
Once you have submitted the required documents, you will be invited by post to attend a citizenship ceremony. Here, you will swear an oath of fidelity to the state and receive your certificate. From the date of the citizenship ceremony, you will be an Irish citizen.
After receiving citizenship, we would recommend you apply for your Irish passport as soon as possible, particularly if you are planning on travelling. First-time applicants must submit a paper-based application to the Passport Office using an APS 1E form – these are available at any An Post post office, garda station or the Passport Offices in Cork and Dublin.
