Information on Obtaining Irish Citizenship and Passports
As Ireland is a member state of the European Union (“EU”), Irish passport holders are entitled to move freely and live and work in all the other member states of the EU.
You can apply for an Irish passport if you were born in Ireland or if you have at least one Irish parent or grandparent. There are two Irish Government websites with detailed information about passports and citizenship requirements. The Department of Foreign Affairs website, https://www.dfa.ie/passports-citizenship/ provides detailed information on how to apply for an Irish passport. The Department of
Justice’s Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service website, http://www.inis.gov.ie/en/inis/pages/wp11000024 provides more information on obtaining Irish citizenship.
