The Immigration Reform and Control Act requires all U.S. employers to verify the employment eligibility and identity of all their employees as of November 6, 1986. This includes both identity and employment eligibility.
It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that proper documentation is provided for each new employee hired after November 6, 1986. There are large penalties for failure to provide Form I-9 for all employees when requested. The employer has the right to refuse to continue the employee’s employment. There are some exceptions as to who the Form I-9 applies to, such as independent contractors, employees hired from employment agencies, and employees hired before November 7, 1986.

To make a successful citizenship application, it is important to make sure you keep your renewed residence permit on time. You should allow enough time to facilitate your appointment with GNIB in time to renew your permit before it expires. Otherwise, if you delay, you may create a gap in residence permits, thus creating a scenario whereby your residence is not considered continuous residence for the purposes of your citizenship/naturalization application.
Non-EEA citizens should complete the online residency calculator when submitting their citizenship applications. They should also enter the dates of their registration stamps to ensure they are eligible and this should be attached to the application. If the client is unsure of their stamps, we can write to GNIB to obtain a reasonable residency letter with all their stamps in the state and dates of registration. We always offer to do this when the client is unsure.
In relation to the application fee, the Department does not accept money orders and Bank of Ireland will not deliver a bank draft for less than €500. Therefore, a different bank must be used to purchase the money order.
