I'm Italian citizen and my husband is non EU from Nigeria.
We got married in Italy but both of us wanted to move over to Cork or Dundalk or Waterford in Ireland.
We are both still in Italy because my husband just applied for the Permesso di Soggiorno per coesione familiare?
We are waiting for it now
Thanks for the feedback
We applied for the Italian Resident here in Italy because we got married here in Italy and according to most people, its better my husband have Resident Permit of an Italian Family before we move to Ireland.
The problem now is my Pregnant meaning I cant be able to Work.
But my Husband has many year experience as a Computer Technician and we both still want to go back to School.
Really happy to have found this website. Thanks to everyone for their helpful info so far. It's refreshing to find somewhere on the internet where people are helpful and nice to each other.
My American girlfriend and I are planning to get married this September in the US and then move to Ireland. Thanks to this thread I understand most of what that process will involve. However, I am just wondering about people's experiences/advice regarding proof of joint address. We are planning to move to my parents' house temporarily. I know that people have said using something like a mobile phone bill would be iffy. What other options are there without a tenancy agreement to show? Or would it even be possible for my parents to draft some sort of agreement to say that we are living there?
I noticed there is a lot of information regarding couples marrying in Ireland. What about couples who were married before moving to Ireland? What would be the procedure for the non-EEA member then?
I'm American (so non visa required) and my spouse is Irish. We met and got married in the US a few years ago and have been living here ever since. We're planning to move to Ireland in the next couple of months and would like to plan ahead. According to the INIS website, the foreign national and their Irish national spouse would attend at the local Garda National Immigration Bureau Registration office with 4 items:
-Their original marriage certificate
-Their original passports
- Evidence of joint address
My questions are:
1. Are there any other necessary items the website failed to mention? Birth cert maybe?
2. What would constitute an acceptable evidence of joint address,
especially if the couple is sub-leasing or staying with a family member?
3. Would the couple need to return to the Garda office for an interview or
any other procedure after the initial registration date and before the
application can be approved?
4. How long does it normally take this sort of application (US citizen
married to an Irish national) to process?
5. If the application is approved, how long is the permit valid for
I've been trying to contact the INIS and Garda offices all over Ireland for answers, but to no avail. The INIS will not deal with "general immigration queries" and the Garda office lines are always busy.
Thanks in advance to all you wonderful folks,
Congratulations first of all!
Question: did your American husband not need a Marriage Visa to enter Ireland? My Irish fiancé and I (an American) are getting married in Ireland this summer and I thought I needed a Marriage visa to enter. But simply letting registering the marriage after the fact is enough? That would be amazing because the marriage visa is very involved!
@Liam thanks for your reply. Is it possible for someone on a tourist visa to get their name on a joint bank account?
