[Sticky] Introduce yourself here
Hi Jean, I added what I've found about bringing your pet to Ireland to the Pet thread on the forum. You can find it here: https://irelandmoveclub.com/community/pets/updated-pet-info-for-my-move/
So happy I found this forum and have been reading all I can on Stamp 0. My husband will be attending UCC this fall and myself and our two girls would like to stay with him while he completes his masters degree. We only want to reside in the country for 1 year but getting permission to stay was a lot harder then we thought. We have hired a solicitor and are in the process of applying for Stamp 0. My question is once submitted how long did it take for you all to hear back from INIS? We have already been in the country 35 days and hoping things progress quickly so we don’t run over our 90 day limit.
@coolbrz Hi Windy,
Those that have shared their stamp 0 experience here on the site have each indicated that it was always quite quick e.g. 1-3 months. That's for the successful applicants at least anyway.
Check out my extremely useful Moving to Ireland FAQ Guide!
@userid mention someone if you'd like to get their attention.
Hello! My name is Lucia. My husband and I are moving to Waterford this September from California. Can anyone recommend areas of Waterford that we should avoid moving to? Or any areas you would recommend moving to in Waterford?
We are also trying to ship some personal items, does anyone know of inexpensive shippers?
I'm Lani, from California, looking to move to Ireland to join my long distance Irish partner of 8 (!!!) years. I have lots of questions, as with everyone 🙂
Thank you so much for creating this site @moveclubadmin Liam. I was really struggling to find (and/or understand...) relevant info before stumbling on these forums. Extremely helpful!
I am an Irish citizen and my fiance is malaysian, we are marrying this year, however I want to return to live in Ireland to be with my sick mother.
I have some questions about him obtaining a stamp 4 visa.
I have seen that the application process can take up to 12 months, is the processing time shorter if you are already married, and because i am an Irish citizen?
Is there some kind of benefit payment he can receive until he is entitled to work or do i need to support him for 12 months and prove i can?
Is there any faster options so we can get there and start working as soon as possible.
Also for the proof of address, we will be staying in my mother's home which i already have letters and bills with my name on sent to, would a proof of address with my name and separate one with my mothers name plus a written letter from her confirming he will also be residing in the property suffice?
Any information is helpful, thank you!
I have been traveling to Ireland every year for the past 15 years. I am now retired and looking to spend more time in the country I have come to love. I was fortunate in my career and should be in a position to apply for Stamp O status. I was thrilled to find this site as the information on the INIS site is not very informative.
My first question is, can I apply for Stamp O status from the U.S., or do I need to apply upon my next arrival? Secondly, if is approved for Stamp O status, what are the limitations or requirements on travel back to the U.S.? For instance, is it possible to return for the holidays or a couple of winter months?
Thank you! I look forward to learning more as I delve deeper into this site!
