Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
Foreign Birth Registration
629. To ask the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade if a foreign birth registration application by a person (details supplied) can be progressed by using some of the original documentation already on file for the applicant’s sibling; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2344/23]
Due to periodic changes in the format of documents issued by civil registration authorities, and to protect the integrity of the Foreign Birth Registration (FBR) system, previous verifications of civil documents by the FBR service cannot be relied upon for subsequent FBR applications. Accordingly, FBR applications that are submitted separately each require a full set of supporting documents to be submitted for authentication and verification.
If the Applicant would like further information on the requirements for their application, they can speak to a dedicated Foreign Birth Registration agent by contacting the Passport Service Customer Service Hub on +353 1 671 1633.
