The registration process is applying to register as an Irish National overseas...it gives full citizenship rights but that is what it is known as if you are applying through a parent or a grandparent, and you should quote that to get the right form.

Sorry Victoria, it's not known as that. There is only a concept of Irish citizenship under Irish law and using a term like Irish National Overseas will just get people confused.

You can download a consolidated version of the Irish nationality code from:
http://www.justice.i...idationINCA.pdf (pdf)

There is absolutely no mention of the concept of an Irish National Overseas. If you've got an authoritative reference to the contrary then of course, it would be interesting to see it.

Category C - you must first register in the Foreign Births Register. The words Irish National born overseas are on the form.

Category C (child of an Irish born parent) doesn't need to register.

And even if the term appears on the form (form is seemingly not available online), it's still wrong - forms are not the law, and as you can see, it's not in the statute.

Sorry, I meant category D.

I know what is in the statute...I have the form in front of me because I am making the application for myself!

The forms are not available on line, the applicant must phone the consulate.

With respect - in that case it ought to be clear that a statute takes precedence over the wording on a form.

You just can't get through to some people can you Victoria. I ain't got a clue about this case but at least I understood what you were getting at. Breathe deeply and count to ten!

Sorry not had a chance to check for quite a while. I must say that I am overwhemled by the amount of help & advice you guys are giving many many thanks to ayou all. I think that the choise of Irish Ancestral Visa is not one that she wishes to pursue but thanks for the advice on that. I've emailed the consulate in & DHL (who handle the Visa's) Pretoria but I have not had a reply yet at all, not that I am that surprised to be honest but when/if they get back to me I will post their reply on here for others. I think the major point is going to be the passport, not the right forum I know, but can anybody tell me the approx time to get a replacement passport in SA at the moment, (I imagine it might take a while as she lost her current one) so far it has tnow taken about 6 weeks for an 'emergency' passport & we are still waiting. Also how much money will see need to have in her bank account, as I hear that she will need a balance in there before they will authorise the Visa?
Yet again thanks for everybodies help on this you are fantastic & helpful people.

Ok I have received the following Email from the British Consulate in Pretoria:-

Dear Sir or Madam

Thank you for your enquiry.

In answer to your question I would like to advise that there is currently a
3 working day queue at the High Commission before officers undertake the initial assessment of visa applications. The officer may issue the visa at that stage or may undertake additional checks.

That sounds good nes to me. I have also Emailed the SA home office asking for a timescale on the passports but as yet (3weeks later) I have not received a reply. Once again can anybody shed any light on this question?
