Tourist Visa information help need

Post by Ajitpals » Mon Mar 25, 2019 9:33 am

Hi Guys,

I'm applying for the tourist visa for my parents. In the application form, they ask, if there is any family member in Ireland, then enter the information. Its ask for GNIB reference number, that starts from the 69/xxxxxxx/xx something. Last year, I have received new Residence permit card. There is no number starts that from 69/xxxxxx/xx. I'm entering the Residence permit card number (RXXXXXX) and it's not accepting it and showing following error The DJELR reference number is not correct. Did anyone face a similar issue, while applying?

Any information will be helpful? cheers.


Regards,
Ajit

Ignore that field. That is the old format number which is no longer in use. Also, the card number starts with R is not useful and not needed. If they ask for the GNIB number, use the number on the backside of the card "Registration number". Garda will identify you using only that number.

Thanks for the reply.
But if that field is left empty or even entering the registration number, It will throw the formatting/validation error. and form is not proceeding

Anyways, I might give the try again or disable the JS on that page, for the textbox.

That is not mandatory. No red star. So you can ignore that. I did the same
