Irish Citizenship/Passport Applications
Are you eligible for Irish Citizenship/
Irish Passport by descent?
As Ireland is a member of the European Union, all Irish passport holders are entitled to live and work and to move freely in all other EU member states.
If you were born outside of Ireland, you can become an Irish citizen by descent if either:
One of your parents was an Irish citizen at the time of your birth, even though they were not born in Ireland
One of your grandparents was born in Ireland
In these cases, you can become an Irish citizen through Foreign Birth Registration.
Once a person is entered onto the Foreign Births Register they are an Irish citizen and are entitled to apply for an Irish passport. (Department of Foreign Affairs www.dfa.ie)
