Customer Question

Hello I have some questions but first I'd like to know how this site works, is it a paid service?
JA: PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine.
Customer: what is the cost?
JA: The Expert's answer will cost $10 to $100, depending on the issue type and time to respond. You'll see the exact amount on the next page and can decide then. It's way less expensive and more convenient than any face-to-face visit.

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Good afternoon, I would be more than happy to help. Is the overstay as a result of Covid?
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Hello thank you.
Yes and no. We arrived on 30 April and my status expires 29 July. (my partner is an Italian citizen so she's fine).
If we absolutely had to, we could leave the country and hop to somewhere in Europe. We just don't have any good options at the moment, I can't bring her to Canada yet, and she can't bring me to Australia (her home country). We are engaged, but not married and have not lived together for 2 years so I think the EEU Permitted Family Member visa will not work (looked into it).
The place we're staying is very safe and good for our mental health so we would prefer to simply hang out here for an extra month or two as the world sorts itself out. I know that however won't qualify for an extension, it's not because of a hospitalization or anything official. So I just would like to know what potential consequences I could be facing if I stay for, for example, two extra months. We don't plan to settle long-term in Ireland, but may want to return next year for example. Fines, imprisonment, deportation, entry bans, trouble with future visas in Ireland, trouble in other Euro countries, etc.? Just want to know whether this is a mistake...

The biggest problem that you are likely to face in future is simply problems on re-entry. In the current climate, given Covid, if you do face any questions in future, you could simply put it down to Covid. Even were you to apply for a visa extension, chances of getting a reply from INIS before two months is out are slim to none.
