Naturalisation is a process whereby a non-Irish national can apply to become an Irish citizen subject to satisfying certain conditions for naturalisation.
All applications for Irish citizenship are dealt with by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service of the Department of Justice and Equality. The majority of applications will have a decision within 6 months. For more information on the application process, please visit www.inis.gov.ie
For useful residency information for non-Irish family members please visit the Crosscare Migrant Project, an organisation funded by the Irish Government under the Emigrant Support Programme.
