Irish Born Child Renewals
Notice to Non-National parents of Irish Born Children born in the State please renew your permission to remain in the State in line with the information set out below.
Please note: Applicants who have been issued with a formal notification in writing to seek renewal from INIS directly are required to complete the attached application form.
NOTICE TO NON NATIONAL PARENTS OF IRISH BORN CHILDREN BORN IN THE STATE BEFORE 1 JANUARY 2005, WHO WERE INITIALLY GRANTED PERMISSION TO REMAIN IN THE STATE UNDER THE IBC/05 SCHEME AND WHO WERE SUBSEQUENTLY GRANTED RENEWED PERMISSION in 2007 and 2010.
- An arrangement has been put in place for the further renewal of permission to remain in the State to non-nationals who are the parents of an Irish born child, born in the State before 1 January 2005, who were initially granted permission to remain in the State under the Irish Born Child Scheme, 2005 (IBC/05) and who were subsequently granted further permission to remain in 2007 and 2010.
- Permission to remain will be renewed for a further period of three years, save in exceptional circumstances, and subject to conditions.
- If you wish to further renew your permission to remain in the State under this arrangement and you have not been convicted of any criminal offences, you are required to attend with your Irish born citizen child at the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS), 13-14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2, or your nearest Immigration Office in your local Garda District Headquarters station outside Dublin and to present the following documentation, no earlier than 14 days before your current permission to remain in the State is due to expire:
- Original Passport/National Identity card;
- Original GNIB card;
- Evidence of continuous residency in the State (e.g. utility bills or letter from government department outlining dates of residency. NB: current utility bills alone will not suffice as they only show your current address);
- Documentary evidence that your Irish citizen child is and has been living in the State (e.g. letters from schools, doctors etc);
- Documentary evidence of the role you are/have been playing in your child's life (documentary evidence must demonstrate that your child has been dependent on you in the State);
- Any other information that you consider relevant.
- If you are unable to attend with your Irish born citizen child or provide the above documents, you must provide an acceptable reason as to why this is the case.
- If you do not attend with your Irish born citizen child or provide the above documents, and fail to provide an acceptable reason for such absence, you will not be further renewed and will not, therefore, be registered.
- Renewal of your permission to remain in the State under this arrangement does not in any way confer any entitlement or legitimate expectation on any other person, whether related to you or not, to enter or remain in the State.
- Renewal of your permission to remain in the State is subject to a registration fee in the amount of €300.
PLEASE NOTE: If your permission to remain in the State expires and you do not renew it, the Minister will consider you to be illegal in the State, unless you have an alternative basis for remaining in the State.

On foot of the decision of the Minister for Justice and Equality to grant me renewal of permission to remain in the State for a 3 year period from the date below I accept the following conditions:

- that I have not been prosecuted for any offence since the date of my last renewal date;
- that I will make every effort to become, or to remain, economically viable in the State by engaging in employment, business or a profession;
- that I will take all steps (such as appropriate participation in training or language courses) to enable me to engage, or to remain, in employment, business or a profession;

** ‘Continuous residency’ means living in the State for the period covered by this temporary permission to remain, allowing for reasonable periods of absence from the State for holidays, exceptional family circumstances or commitments outside the State arising from business or employment carried on within the State.
I understand that if I breach any of these conditions, my permission to remain in the State may be revoked by the Minister.
