We are delighted to hear that the Minister of Justice, Helen McEntee, has announced new rules that will make it easier for children born in Ireland to become citizens. The new rules will help to ensure that children born in Ireland have a greater sense of belonging and security. This is a significant change that will benefit many families in Ireland.
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐤𝐞𝐲 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐲 𝐚𝐫𝐞:
🍀 The amount of time that children must be resident in Ireland to become Irish citizens has been reduced from five years to three years.
🍀 The policy will also make it easier for parents of Irish citizen children to remain in Ireland.
🍀 They will also make it easier for children to access Irish education and healthcare.
The policy is intended to make it easier for children born in Ireland to secure Irish citizenship, regardless of their parent's nationality. It is also seen as a way to provide security for children whose parents may not have a secure immigration status in Ireland.
We would like to thank Minister McEntee for her leadership on this issue. These new rules are a positive step for the immigrant community in Ireland and will help to make Ireland a more welcoming country for all.
