Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why should I get by dual citizenship, what will I gain by having it?
A. There’s a lot to be gained by having dual citizenship. You can work in Ireland—or any EU country—without a work
permit. You can have an Irish passport, which is considered safer than an American passport. Traveling between
Ireland and other EU countries is more convenient and quicker with an Irish passport. You can buy property in Ireland
and vote on issues that are important to you and your family. Most importantly, you can say, “I am an Irish citizen too.”
Q. Citizens information resources and links ?
A. US embassy in Dublin, Living Ireland section.
The information contained in this section is provided for US citizens living in Ireland or considering long term residency.
The website is http://dublin.usembassy.gov/living_Ireland.html
Irish website www.citizensinformation.ie that contains valuable information for all public services and entitlements in
Q. Is it hard to get dual citizenship?
A. It’s not hard; it just takes time and a lot of patience. There are a multitude of hoops to jump through. Since
everyone wants to be Irish, a few years ago, the Irish government made it rather difficult to gain dual citizenship. This
came about due to pressures put on the Irish government by the EU to clamp down on the number on people coming
into the country.
Q. Is there a guarantee that you will be able to secure my citizenship?
A. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that we will be able to obtain all the records necessary for you to obtain your
citizenship. We are at the mercy of the vital records departments and whether or not certain churches maintained
records of events. We certainly do everything in our power to secure the records necessary for you to apply to the
Consulate for your dual Irish citizenship.
Q. Why are you so good at getting Irish citizenship?
A. We have a lot of experience doing this. We understand the process, recognize when we need additional documents,
and verify which ones we need. We are effective at what we do. We’ve been through this process with many families
and understand the roadblocks you’ll encounter along the sometimes rocky road to citizenship. With that knowledge,
that we’ve built up, we are well positioned to help you obtain your dual Irish citizenship much more rapidly than you
could probably do yourself.
Q. I’ve waited a long time to do this, and I am now ready to apply. How long will it take?
A. The Irish Embassy usually recommends that you plan on at least 18 months from the time the material is submitted.
We have had an extraordinary track record with many of our submissions, and have obtained dual Irish citizenship for
many of our clients in as little as six to eight months. We think the reason the Embassy quotes an 18 months to two
year processing time is because most of the requests they receive are incomplete and have to be returned to the
applicant for additional documentation. We understand precisely what the Irish authorities require in granting
citizenship, and the citizenship request packages we submit are clean, comprehensive, and complete. We make it easy
for the Irish Embassy to say “Yes!” to our clients’ requests.
With all that said, we have no control over the processing time at the Embassy, so these times can vary. Nevertheless,
our work is accurate, comprehensive, and complete—and the citizenship request packets we submit will be processed
at the quick end of their processing spectrum.
Q. My grandparents were born in Ireland, but I don’t have any proof. What should I do?
Our research may needs more clues—sometimes only one—to find those elusive ancestors. Sometimes, we locate
them when they came to the United States, Canada, or England, then we backtrack to find earlier records in Ireland.
Other times, we start right in Ireland.
