Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1 . Dear *****, once your baby is born at the end of the month, your wife will become entitled to a visa to stay in the UK under the Zambrano decision of the European Court of Justice. This means she can apply for a visa to remain whilst living in the UK. This decision gives the right to live and work in any country in the EU to an EU citizen parent so as to provide for that EU citizen child. As your child will have an Irish passport, your wife will be able to apply for a visa on this basis, as she will be the parent of an EU citizen child. This visa will give her the right to live and work in the UK or Ireland.

3. The first thing you should be clear on, is that this is a Question & Answer forum. It is not a visa processing service. Accordingly, if you want someone to handle your visa application, you will need to see a full service law firm. Secondly, the Zambrano visa would be obtained in Northern Ireland or Britain, or Ireland. it depends on where your wife wants to live. The right is given to live any EU member state.
4. There is no such thing as a Zambrano visa in any country. This is the name of the judgment which gives rise to a right to live and work in the country you chose. However, you first need to decide where yourself and your wife want to live. You cannot be living in Northern Ireland under an Ireland visa. So you have to chose which country your wife wants to live in. If she is studying in Northern Ireland, then it would suggest that is where she has to live??? However, the same basis applies in each country, namely the Zambrano decision, for her living in each.
