Earlier today I had the pleasure of speaking with an Irish citizen living in Ireland who is marrying a non-EEA citizen later this year. They have given notice of their intention to marry to the relevant authorities in Ireland, and will follow the process involved with that in the coming months i.e. entry of the non-EEA citizen to Ireland, interview prior to marriage, etc.

The official policy on this type of immigration route states that after marriage the non-EEA citizen must leave the country, and then apply for a 'Join Family' visa, which takes anywhere up to approx 6 months to process. Once that's approved, the non-EEA citizen can enter Ireland, and go about applying for permission to remain (most likely in the form of Stamp 4).

I'm starting this topic for us to share whatever we can about this process. If you've been through it, please add your perspective to the thread, so that others can benefit from your experience. If you too are going down this route, please let us know, or at least subscribe to the topic for updates as their posted. 

Thanks!
