Irish Citizenship

If you are a child or grandchild of a person born in Ireland you may be eligible to obtain Irish Citizenship and apply for an Irish Passport.An individual who has a grandparent that was born in Ireland (and whose father or mother is an Irish citizen born outside Ireland) can become an Irish citizen by having his or her birth entered in the Register of Foreign Births.  
Also, Irish law permits dual citizenship and does not require applicants to renounce any other citizenship held at the time of application.
  There are four requirements in order to register a Foreign Birth by Descent, and they are:

  1. Completing the Foreign Birth Registration Form
  2. Finding the correct Embassy or Consulate for your location
  3. Providing Payment
  4. Submit Supporting Documents


K.B. Genealogy & Research can help guide you through the process. We can also conduct the research and obtain the necessary supporting documents for your claim.

We then write the report to support your claim of Irish Citizenship by Descent and make sure all necessary documents are included for your submission.


  If your application is approved and your birth is registered in the Foreign Birth Database you will receive a certificate in the mail confirming you are now an Irish Citizen.

You then have the option to apply for an Irish Passport, which is both a great asset and a fine culmination to all the hard work of applying for Irish Citizenship.
