I have another very relevant topic today for you which comes about as a result of a reader question. A young Irish lady living in Australia is planning her return home this year, and had a question about what I did with respect to getting my children Irish passports. Like Lisa, my kids are overseas born, and therefore entitled to 2 passports, Irish and US.
Lisa also had a question about the PPS number application process, and I go into detail in the podcast about what I had to do to apply for those, and what you she expect regarding requirements and timelines. Enjoy!
