Based on Irish law, specifically the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 1956, can I live abroad after naturalizing as an Irish citizen and retain my citizenship just by filling that form?
Yes, subject of course to factual disputes. The statute (as amended) provides that this revocation is not possible when the citizen has "registered annually in ...
I've found a source from the Budapest Government Office in Hungarian.
A nyelvtudást nem kell nyelvvizsgával igazolni, a magyar nyelven történő kommunikáció az elvárás; a kommunikációnak kétoldalúnak kell lennie, azaz mind a megértésnek, mind a kifejezőképességnek középszinten kell állnia. A magyar nyelvtudás vizsgálatánál nem probléma a nem magyar ...
Would such a person be considered a "natural born citizen," for the
purpose of qualifying for the presidency, from October 25th 1994? In
other words, after having lived in the US for at least 14 years, could
such a person run for the office of the president or the vice
This is an unresolved issue. Some scholars believe that to be a "...
I have heard that you have to spend at least six months in a year in
US to remain eligible for naturalization. Is that really true?
No, that is not true. There is no requirement regarding amount of time you have to spend in the US in a year. The only requirements are the continuous residence requirement and the physical presence requirement.
You are ...
I don't know about that particular case, but you are basically right: In Switzerland, if you want to apply for citizenship, you apply for it in the municipality first. Everybody having the citizenship of the municipality has the swiss citizenship as well. In theory, the canton and the state also have something to say, but that's irrelevant for most ...
The instructions for form N-400 address this:
NOTE: You must submit documentation of traffic incidents if:
(1) The incident involved alcohol or drugs;
(2) The incident led to an arrest; or
(3) The incident seriously injured another person.
You do not need to submit documentation for traffic fines or incidents that did not involve an arrest or did not ...
When can I re-apply for the citizenship, there is no date mentioned on the letter received.
You can reapply as soon as you meet the criteria. If you don't move again to another state or USCIS district, and if you don't spend so much time outside the US that you fail to meet the physical presence requirement, then you can reapply on the three-month ...
So, what happens when the American parent tries taking the baby with them to the U.S.?
If the child has proper documents, the specifics of which depend on the child's citizenship and the purpose of entering the US, nothing will happen.
If the visit is temporary, the child needs the same documents as any temporary visitor with the same citizenship. If the ...
Actual email thread between me and an immigration lawyer: http://nadinewongsolicitors.co.uk/contact-us
I think I need to do more reading... But maybe you can clarify that
for me - to become British Citizen 5 years is enough?
"lived in the UK for at least the 5 years before the date of your
If 5 years is enough then maybe we ...
As an EU Citizen (and your EU family members), you are automatically a permanent resident after 5 years.
You can apply for a permanent resident card to document this.
Such a card would document the fact that you fulfill the 5 years required for naturalization, should you wish to also become an Irish citizen.
Permanent residence (after 5 years) for ...
If a bill like this was enacted, people with pending green card applications that are not authorized under the new law, like siblings and adult children of citizens and green card holders, will probably have their applications summarily denied. This is the likely outcome despite their often long years of patient waiting (unless the newly enacted ...
A judge ruled in July that this requirement may only be satisfied by 365 or 366 days of physical presence in Ireland. An appeal was scheduled for this month. It does not seem that the rule is different for EU citizens, but it was different before July, because there had been a policy in place that considered short trips abroad not to interrupt residence. ...
Is there a way for the American parent have the baby converted to a (naturalized) citizen?
The Child Citizenship Act of 2000 lays out the requirements for non-citizen children of US citizens to be naturalized. It is the primary route by which children adopted from abroad gain US citizenship, but it applies to biological children as well. The basic ...
I heard that one of the criteria is that you must not have claimed benefits for more than 3 months in the last year.
I don't know where you heard this, but it is not one of the eligibility requirements for EU citizens. See pages 14 to 18 of the government's published guidance in the Naturalisation Booklet.
Your surmise is correct.
But, even if you got it wrong, there would be no litigation sanction for doing so. This portion of the civil cover sheet is used solely for purposes of gathering accurate statistics about the case load of the federal courts for policy-making and budgetary purposes.
Now does it mean that after 5 years of residence in Ireland, I (EU national) and my non-EU family members should apply for PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR IRISH CITIZENSHIP?
It seems to mean that you may each choose one option or the other.
Why would one apply for PR when they can apply for Irish citizenship after 5 years of residence?
One possibility: the current ...
The Apply for Citizenship | USCIS site seems to contain the needed information.
Step 2. Determine if you are eligible to become a U.S. citizen.
Going through the Naturalization Eligibility Worksheet contained in the pdf
gives in great detail, with possible rules of exceptions, how your times outside the US will be treated
and if you still qualify.
The "Booklet AN" is an official document, released or updated March 2019. The information at Sable International is more a throwaway comment - they are discussing spouse visa rules in detail, and just say "by the way, the rules for naturalisation are different". So normally I would trust the "Booklet AN" more.
To be on the safe side, avoid leaving over 90 ...
The current law does suggest so. The law does not actually contrast "nationality" and "citizenship" as the translation suggests: it says that the grandparent "não tenha perdido essa nacionalidade" (has not his his/her nationality). The part that would remain to be determined is whether both grandparents lost their Portuguese nationality somehow. The most ...
Yes you lose the non-citizen status. See https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-citizens_(Latvia)
Specifically the 3rd prong of the following:
The non-citizens are "citizens of the former USSR (..) who reside in the Republic of Latvia as well as who are in temporary absence and their children who simultaneously comply with the following conditions: 1) on 1 ...
