IRELAND: CITIZENSHIP

We will be pleased to answer and discuss any concerns you may have on the immigration process to Ireland. 

ACTS AND REGULATIONS

  • Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 1956

IRELAND: CITIZENSHIP BY BIRTH

A person born in the island of Ireland after 1 January 2005 to parents, at least one of whom was an Irish or British citizen, has an entitlement of Irish citizenship.

Otherwise, a person born in the island of Ireland after 1 January 2005 is entitled to Irish citizenship only if, during the four (4) year period immediately preceding the person’s birth, one of the parents has been resident of Ireland for a period of not less than three (3) years.

IRELAND: CITIZENSHIP THROUGH DESCENT

  1. If either of your parents was an Irish citizen at the time of your birth, you are an Irish citizen, irrespective of the location.
  2. If you were born outside Ireland to an Irish citizen who was himself or herself born in Ireland, then you are entitled to be an Irish citizen.
  3. If you are of the third or subsequent generation born abroad to an Irish citizen (in other words, one of your parents is an Irish citizen but none of your parents or grandparents were born in Ireland), you may be entitled to become an Irish citizen by having your birth registered in the Foreign Births Register; this depends on whether your parent through whom you derive Irish citizenship had himself or herself become an Irish citizen by being registered in the Foreign Births Register before you were born.
