Passport-related Issues
 
# 1 : Monday 18-2-2013 @ 21:26
 
 
My friend is at a quandary and asked the following question. Can anyone help advise?

Someone said :
We are applying for an Irish passport for our child. Our kid has 4 forenames in his birth certificate, bringing it to 5 names (including our surname).

We wonder how many forenames are allowed in the Irish passport? Standard practices implies the first two forenames but will 4 forenames be allowed in the passport?

Please advise

Why would they need to use all forenames? Surely two would do.

Four forenames are allowed on the form. The first two will be used on the passport (but you can get that cut to the first name only): http://www.dfa.ie/uploads/documents/Passport_documents/aps1e.pdf

I wonder are they Spanish? I know that on the Iberian Peninsula, this sort of naming-convention is quite common e.g. Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero (former PM).

Not quite the same. The Spanish have two surnames, one from their mither and one from the father.

I'm currently in the process of renewing my own passport (€89 for the privilige too, might I add ) but I've always had my first, christian and surname on it.

Thanks for all the answers.

No, Eamonn, they are not Spanish.

Surely you'd have to put whats on the birth cert. I know when my exwife was getting her passport she had to spell her 2nd forename as it was spelt on the birth cert, even though it had been spelt wrongly in the register of Births.
I could be wrong but they are both legal doduments.

I just submitted an application today and I couldn't really wait until Monday to find out so maybe someone here can help me?

My photos came as 4 identical ones on one page. I didn't know whether to cut them Ito separate ones or submit it as one so I submitted it as one. Anyone know if that's ok? Also two are supposed to be signed and stamped by a Garda. She signed two of them but the stamp was big so she used one stamp across two photos. Is this acceptable?

Finally got around to renewing my passport after a twelve year absence.
It's great to be able to fly with Ryanair again and go further than Ireland and the UK.

Is there not free movement between Kyavan and the rest of the country? Understandable I suppose.

petrol money is an unfair barrier to free movement in these cases

what's the deal with getting a guard to sign your photos? Does the guard have to know you?

No. But they would probably need some ID
