Premission to Remain: Stamp vs. Card
Hi! I'm a US Citizen marrying an Irish Citizen. I'm a little concerned because I read on the government website that the processing time for permission to remain can be up to 12 months. We have been doing international-level long distance for 6.5 years, so my goal is to get married and stay together. I read somewhere, though I can't remember where, that after we have the marriage certificate, we take it to INIS and they stamp my passport with a Stamp 4. But I was reading in another board that some people had to send off of a card to stamp. My question is, what is the difference between the stamp and the card, and is there a difference in the processing timeline?
The Stamp is an ink stamp which goes in your passport. Another reader kindly shared a picture of theirs with us here : https://irelandmoveclub.com/community/ireland-move-club-members-forum/permission-to-remain-in-ireland-as-the-spouse-of-an-irish-national/paged/2/#post-630
