Irish citizenship - Live and work in the UK

We can help you apply for Irish citizenship

Becoming an Irish citizen means that you are officially recognised as an Irish national and a citizen of the European Union. With this, comes the right to carry an Irish passport and live and work in Ireland and the EU.

Irish citizenship and Irish passports are granted to individuals who are born abroad to a parent who, although not born in Ireland, was otherwise an Irish citizen at the time of their birth.

As Irish citizenship is automatically passed down to direct descendants, someone who has an Irish-born grandparent may qualify to register as an Irish citizen. In order to claim this citizenship, you would need to demonstrate that your grandparent was born in Ireland. You would also need to provide evidence that proves this.

Speak to an immigration consultant for help with your Irish passport application.

We have some exciting news
for all our visas clients...

1st Contact Visas is rebranding to Sable International!

For the last 18 months we've been slowly merging with our big brother, Sable International. Over the next year we're going to complete that merger. This will in no way affect your visa, ILR, citizenship, passport or work permit applications.

Your caseworker will not be going anywhere as the entire 1st Contact team will be in the same roles at Sable International. You'll still get that great 1st Contact Visas service, just under a new name.

We'll be keeping you in the loop as we prepare for the next exciting phase in this rebranding.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us directly.
