IEC Dual citizenship help.
#1Today at 6:18 PM
My apologies if this is the wrong forum.
I am looking to apply for IEC Canada.
I have dual citizenship and passports for both Ireland and the United Kingdom.
I applied for an IEC visa a few years ago on my UK passport and received the port of entry. I did not use the visa and it expired.
I confirmed that I am able to apply for a new IEC under my Irish passport. The main concern I have is that I reside in the UK and have done since birth (minus 2 years in Australia) and have never infact lived in Ireland.
1) Will this be an issue when applying for the IEC visa? Or do I just state in a letter I have dual citizenship through descent?
2) Will I need a police check for Ireland (never lived or stayed longer than two weeks) or just the UK and Australia.
3) If I still have to get the police checks for UK and Australia, do I do so under my Irish or UK passport? (Entered Aus on UK passport, lived in UK my whole life since birth and have not travelled with my Irish passport)
I would appreciate a detailed response on this matter and also any advice you may have. Thank you!
