I am one of those affected by the 12 months-no-absence

Customer Question

I am one of those affected by the 12 months-no-absence ruling on naturalisation in the State. I saw the Minister intended to introduce new legislation allowing a 6-week absence, but I cannot see what has hjappened to that. Has the legislation passed? Who can I ask?
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Ireland
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Dont understand. Online it said Minister wanted to bring in legislation. Has the law recently been changed to allow 6-week absence?
JA: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: that is it: how far has the new legislation got?

The legislation has not passed yet. That said, most people are making their applications regardless as it is due to be changed!
