Irish Citizenship & Passport Application for Scots Decendants

Irish Citizenship leading to EU Membership

When the United Kingdom gained independence from Europe, many UK residents found that they would like to remain European Citizens.

Did you know that proving your descent from someone born on the Island of Ireland is a straightforward and uncomplicated process that can lead to your application for Irish Citizenship?

Once you have Irish citizenship, you not only become a member of Europe but also gain the numerous and exciting benefits of being a European citizen.

Are you already an Irish Citizen?

If you or one of your parents were born on the island of Ireland before 2005, you are already an Irish citizen. With the correct documents to verify who you are, you can apply for an Irish passport without making a citizenship application.

Post-2005, changes in Irish nationality and citizenship legislation mean that if you or your parents were born on the island of Ireland on or after 1 January 2005, your eligibility for Irish citizenship is tied to your parents’ citizenship at birth and their residency history before your birth. This may require additional documentation for verification.

Was your parent an Irish citizen who wasn’t born on the island of Ireland?

If your parents were Irish citizens but were not born on the Island of Ireland, you can apply for Irish citizenship through the Foreign Birth Register. This process involves registering your foreign birth with the Irish government, and once approved, you are considered an Irish citizen entitled to apply for an Irish passport.

Were your grandparents born on the island of Ireland?

If one of your grandparents was born on the island of Ireland, you can apply for Irish citizenship by descent. Our dedicated researcher, Shirley, is here to assist you in obtaining the necessary documentation to prove your lineage. Shirley’s expertise and experience in genealogical research will prove invaluable in this process.
