Questions or comments

Citizenship by naturalisation and citizenship ceremonies

'My GNIB card is expiring before the rescheduled citizenship ceremony. What do I do?'

You may need a new GNIB card if you are due to attend the rescheduled ceremony but need to travel abroad before then (and in some other circumstances).

Find out if you need to apply for a new GNIB card.

'Why can't I get through when I call? Why is the phone number sometimes not recognised?'

This is due to the very large number of calls we receive. If this happens to you, keep trying. We are answering calls.

If your query is not urgent, the best way to get an answer is via email.

We are processing record numbers of applications in 2017 and high call volumes make it hard for some people to get through.

'You asked me to send in more documents to support my citizenship application. I have most of them, but some are missing. What do I do?'

If you have the most important documents and if you have made a credible effort, send us what you have.

You should also type or write a letter that explains any gaps and include it with your documents.

We will contact you again if we need more.
