1 IRELAND (updated on ) 1. Legislative provisions concerning nationality. a. Texts in force - Irish Nationality & Citizenship Act, 1956 (the principal Act) - Irish Nationality & Citizenship Act, Irish Nationality & Citizenship Act, Irish Nationality & Citizenship Regulations, Irish Nationality & Citizenship Act, 2001 The main change wrought by the 2001 Act is the embedding in Irish Citizenship legislation of a constitutional amendment regarding citizenship through birth in Ireland (although this will change again soon - see "Draft legislation and trends" below). Article 2 of the Irish Constitution says: Every person born in the Island of Ireland, its islands and its seas, has an entitlement and birthright to be part of the Irish nation. That entitlement and birthright translates, in terms of citizenship laws, into an entitlement to be an Irish citizen. This provision in the Irish Constitution, which was approved by the people in a referendum on 22 May 1998, gives effect in Irish law to the British-Irish Agreement, part of the Good Friday Agreement. At Article 1 (vi) of the British-Irish Agreement, the two Governments recognise the birthright of all the people of Northern Ireland to identify themselves and be accepted as Irish or British or both, as they may so choose, and accordingly confirm that their right to hold both British and Irish citizenship is accepted by both Governments and would not be affected by any future change in the status of Northern Ireland. b. Main Principles and Provisions The conditions governing the acquisition of Irish citizenship and the conferring of naturalisation are contained in the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Acts, 1956,1986 et 2001(Unless otherwise stated, all references hereafter are to sections of these Acts). b.1 Citizenship b.1.1 Every person born in the Island of Ireland is entitled to be an Irish citizen. [Section 6 (1)] b.1.2 Every person whose father or mother was an Irish citizen at the time of his/her birth, is an Irish citizen. [Section 7(1)]

2 b.1.3 A person whose grandparents, but not his/her parents, were born in Ireland can claim Irish citizenship by registering in the Foreign Births Register FBR at an Irish Embassy or Consular Office or at the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin. Registration in this manner will also allow such a person's child to register for citizenship, provided the former registration was completed by the time of the child's birth. [Sections 6(2), 7(3), 27] Example: A (Born in Ireland) Entitled to be an Irish citizen B (Daughter of A) Irish citizen C (Son of B/grandson of A) Must register to obtain Irish citizenship D (Daughter of C/great granddaughter of A) May register for Irish citizenship, provided that "C" had registered by the time of "D's" birth Note: If "C" had registered prior to 31 December 1986, "D" would be able to register at any time. The 1986 Act introduced a provision whereby registration in the FBR after the aforementioned date granted citizenship from the date of registration only. b.1.4 The President may grant Irish citizenship as a token of honor to a person or to the child or grandchild of a person who, in the opinion of the Government, has done signal honor or rendered distinguished service to the nation. A total of X persons have received this honour to date. [Section 12] b.2 Post-nuptial citizenship b.2.1 A non-irish citizen, married to a person who is an Irish citizen (otherwise than by naturalisation), may accept Irish citizenship as his/her post-nuptial citizenship by lodging a declaration not earlier than three years from the date of the marriage or three years from the date the applicant's spouse became an Irish citizen through registration in the Foreign Birth's Register, whichever is the later. An applicant must submit (if resident in Ireland, to the Department of Justice; if resident abroad, to the nearest Irish Embassy or Consul Office) a declaration that: a. the marriage is subsisting at the date of lodgment of the declaration; b. the couple are living together as husband and wife and the spouse who is an Irish citizen submits an affidavit to that effect when the declaration is being lodged. [Section 8] b.2.2 The post-nuptial process has been repealed with effect from 30 November A transition period in the 2001 Act provides that declarations of post-nuptial citizenship may continue to be lodged until 29 November [Section 4(2)]. b.2.3 Persons who do not qualify to avail of the transition period must apply for naturalisation. [Section 15A - described below] c.3 Naturalisation

3 c.3.1 The Minister may, in his/her absolute discretion, grant an application for a certificate of naturalisation provided certain statutory conditions are fulfilled. In the case of a nonnational applicant who is the spouse of an Irish national those conditions are that the applicant must: - be of full age - be of good character - be married to an Irish citizen for at least 3 years - be in a marriage recognised under the laws of the State as subsisting - be living together as husband and wife with the Irish spouse - have had a period of one year's continuous residence in the island of Ireland immediately before the date of the application and, during the 4 years immediately preceding that period, have had a total residence in the State amounting to 2 years - intends in good faith to continue to reside in the State after naturalisation - has made, either before a justice of the District Court in open court or in such manner as the Minister, for special reasons, allows, a declaration in the prescribed manner, of fidelity to the nation and loyalty to the State. [Section 15A] c.3.2 In other cases the Minister may, in his absolute discretion, grant an application for a certificate of naturalisation provided certain (more rigorous) statutory conditions are fulfilled. Those conditions are that the applicant must: - be of full age - be of good character - have had a period of one year's residency in the State immediately before the date of the application and, during the 8 years immediately preceding that period, have had a total residence in the State amounting to 4 years. - intends in good faith to continue to reside in the State after naturalisation - has made, either before a justice of the District Court in open court or in such manner as the Minister, for special reasons, allows, a declaration in the prescribed manner, of fidelity to the nation and loyalty to the State. [Section 15(1)] c.3.3 Section 16A of the INCA 2001 defines the types of residence which are reckonable for naturalisation purposes. Applicants must have had, if required, the permission of the Minister to remain in the State. Residency spent seeking to be recognized as a refugee and residency spent in the State for the purpose of study are excluded. [Section 16A ]. c.3.4 The Minister has the power to dispense with the statutory conditions for naturalisation, in whole or in part, in certain circumstances that are prescribed by law viz. where the applicant is: - of Irish descent or Irish associations - a parent or guardian acting on behalf of a minor of Irish descent or Irish associations - a naturalised Irish citizen acting on behalf of a minor child of the applicant - or has been resident abroad in the public service - a person who is a refugee within the meaning of the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees of 28 July 1951, and the Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees of 31 January 1967

4 - or is a Stateless person within the meaning of the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons of 28 September [Section 16] c.3.5 A person who knowingly gives false or misleading information when applying for naturalisation is guilty of an offence. [Section 17(2)] c.3.6 A certificate of naturalisation may be revoked under certain circumstances. [Section 19] c.3.7 If an Irish citizen of full age is, or is about to become, a citizen of another country and for that reason desires to renounce citizenship, he or she may do so, if ordinarily resident outside the State; by lodging with the Minister a declaration of alienage, and, upon lodgment of the declaration or, if not then a citizen of that country, upon becoming such, shall cease to be an Irish citizen. [Section 21] 2. International agreements in force 2.1 Ireland is a signatory to the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (1951) and the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons (1954). 3. Recent legislative developments 4. Draft legislation and new trends 4.1 Following a referendum of the people 11 June 2004 the Irish Constitution was amended. The purpose of the Referendum was to deal with the impact of the universal entitlement for those born in Ireland to claim Irish citizenship. 4.2 The relevant amendment to Article 9 of the Irish Constitution reads as follows: 2 10 Notwithstanding any other provision of this Constitution, a person born in the island of Ireland, which includes its islands and its seas, who does not have, at the time of his or her birth, at least one parent who is an Irish citizen or entitled to be an Irish citizen is not entitled to Irish citizenship or nationality, unless otherwise provided for by law. 20 This section shall not apply to persons born before the date of the enactment of this section. 4.3 As the current Irish Nationality and Citizenship Acts provide that every person born in the island of Ireland has an entitlement to Irish citizenship, the foregoing Constitutional amendment has had no effect on the de facto position regarding the acquisition of Irish citizenship. However, the amendment facilitates a change in the current legislation in relation to children born in Ireland except in so far as a child has a parent who is or is entitled to be an Irish citizen is concerned. 4.4 The relevant implementing legislation is expected to be published shortly. In broad terms the implementing legislation will have the following features:

5 A person born whether north or south to non-national parents, either of whom has been lawfully resident in the State for at least three out of the four years preceding the birth, will have an entitlement to Irish citizenship A person born whether north or south to parents one of whom is a British citizen or has an entitlement to reside in the UK (and thus in Northern Ireland) without any restriction on his or her period of residence will be entitled to Irish citizenship A person born whether north or south to parents, either of whom has an entitlement or permission to reside in the State without any restriction on his or her period of residence, will be entitled to Irish citizenship A person born whether north or south to non-national parents one of whom has been lawfully resident in Northern Ireland for at least three out of the four years preceding the birth will have an entitlement to Irish citizenship 4.5 If a person born in Ireland to non-national parents does not come within any of these categories, then he or she will not have an entitlement to Irish citizenship. 4.6 The Government s proposals will not however alter the effect of section 6(3) of the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 1956: if under the above proposals a person born in Ireland to non-national parents does not gain an entitlement to Irish citizenship, but would otherwise have no nationality, then under section 6(3) that person will be an Irish citizen. 5. Recent judicial decisions 6. Recent publications 7. Any other information at present 8. Enquiries concerning matter relating to nationality (in addition to information which may be obtained from the Council of Europe).
