Written answers (Question to Justice)

The Citizenship Division of the Immigration Service of my Department have checked their records and there is no record of an application from the person referred to by the Deputy for a post-nuptial citizenship certificate prior to the scheme ending on 30 November 2005.

I understand that the person concerned was previously included on her husband’s Irish passport. As matters in relation to the issuing and the renewal of an Irish passport are under the remit of my colleague, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the person may wish to contact that Department.
