Nuacht/ News

 On  11 September the Events page was updated.

News, with thanks to Crosscare Ireland, about an important change in the official policy for non-EU de facto partners of Irish citizens applying for immigration permission and residency in Ireland on that basis. 

From April 2017 to September 2017 a key requirement for applicants was that the Irish and non-EU partners had evidence of at least 1 year’s cohabitation. This has now been changed as of September 1st 2017 to a minimum of 2 years cohabitation.

This could potentially impact Irish people hoping to return home with their non-EU partner, and will definitely impact anyone in that situation who does not have 2 years evidence of living together.
