Calculation of reckonable residence for Irish citizenship!

Post by drfzmalik » Wed Jan 30, 2019 12:15 pm

Hi all,
I wonder if any one could please advise on following few queries regarding calculation of reckonable residence in Ireland for citizenship by naturalisation;
1. Does residence period (about 90 days) spent on join spouse visa counts as reckonable residence for citizenship? This is the period generally given by immigration officers at the airport before someone register with INIS to get GNIB stamp.
2. As it is difficult to get GNIB appointment immediately next day after expiry of old GNIB so is the gap between two GNIB stamps considered as reckonable residence?
3. In case of travel abroad for 4 weeks almost every year, can that duration be accounted as reckonable residency in Ireland?
4. Any thoughts on 1 year of continuous residence immediately before the date you apply?
Many thanks (in advance!)

Regarding your 1st reply, most people are saying No on another forum but no one is sure. How can I make sure this?
Secondly if holidays abroad are say for example 7 week in any year, do they consider 6 weeks holidays as reckonable period out of 7 weeks? Or whole holidays period is written off from residency period?

If you check your GNIB stamps, on top left corner it always states if the stamp is stamp1, 4, 3 etc, You are only allowed to put GNIB stamps in Residence calculator(as calc. ask for type of stamp on every entry), The stamp we get during first time entry via immigration from dublin airport is a green stamp and has no stamp_number mentioned on it, Hence it will not be included in residency calculator to calculate reckonable residence.
