Immigration to the Irish forum h1>
The reason for writing this post was our direct participation in the ceremony of obtaining certificates of naturalization in Ireland. We could not, not share with you our impressions and thoughts, about the process described by us.
First, about the impressions from the ceremony of handing out certificates for naturalization. Sit comfortably, our dear ones, since you can experience a small shock from the information you have received.
To better represent the scale of the process described by us, we note that from January to June 2012, 13,000 such certificates were awarded. And since the new government came to power (it’s less than a year), only about 25,000 people have received citizenship!
Given that at the moment the population in Ireland is 4.5 million people, we believe that this is a significant enough replenishment of the Irish citizens. And when, readers of our blog write us “tearful” letters about the desire to immigrate to Ireland and the impossibility of obtaining citizenship in this country, we advise you to carefully read the lines of this post, which refers to the number of certificates obtained on naturalization.
Ireland accepts immigrants in the following areas:
� Immigration for work visas.
� Immigration on the basis of marriage with an Irish citizen or a member of the European Union.
� In connection with obtaining refugee status.
� To reunite a family where one of the family members has a residence permit in Ireland or is a citizen of one of the EU countries.
But if one of the family members managed to get a working visa, then this is the real way to Ireland for all family members. This applies to those who have one of the spouses passport of an EU citizen and who moved to Ireland. As you already understood, this is immigration on the basis of family reunification.
Significantly decreased the number of positively reviewed cases related to the application of refugee status. For example, in 2011, only about 15% of such applications were granted.
Since January 1, 2005, the article of the constitution on the granting of Irish citizenship by birth has changed. Now, children born to foreign parents can immediately apply for an Irish passport only in cases of legal presence of his parents in Ireland, for 3 or more years, at the time of the birth of the child. Otherwise, children can claim Irish citizenship only after reaching the age of 18, independence from the country of residence.
Business ties between Ireland and Russia are gaining momentum. The “Business Forum: Ireland – Russia” functions and a number of joint ventures. So, the employees of these enterprises have the opportunity to immigrate to Ireland on business visas. In addition, individual investors can also apply for a residence permit in Ireland. True, the amount of investment, in such cases, amounts to hundreds of thousands of Euros.
Of course, the ways of immigration to Ireland are quite complex and take several years to complete, but the main thing is that there are such ways, which means that people go through them and will go, regardless of whether you are going with them or watching the process from the outside.
