We acted for a client who had been waiting for her son’s passport for two years and four months. After taking detailed instructions we wrote to the passport office in relation to the citizenship of our client’s son and the applicability of S.6 of the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 1956 as amended and provided the passport office with a certain time period within which to exercise its mandate and issue a passport; or if there had been a refusal then we would have to proceed in the High Court to seek relief by way of judicial review. The High Court judicial review proceedings were not necessary as the passport application was processed after our letter to the Minister for Foreign Affairs and to the passport office.
