Can anyone please explain what this document's page 5 second paragraph means:
"If you are an EU citizen for less than five years please submit copy of your passport showing permission to remain stamps from date of arrival in the State to date of becoming an EU citizen and proof of residence in the State from date of becoming an EU citizen to date of application. Please submit three different proofs of residence for each year showing name and address for this period i.e. mortgage/rent agreement, household bills (gas, electricity, phone or cable/ satellite TV), bank statements, revenue letters, mortgage agreement, social welfare, letter from employment, etc."
Specifically the sentence in bold. Are rules different for naturalized EU citizens who have become EU citizens since not more than 5 years?
EDIT: You can find a note on this page too. What is it exactly?
"Note: To apply as a UK, EU/EEA & Swiss national, you must have been a UK, EU/EEA or Swiss national for more than 5 years. If not, you must apply as a non-EU/EEA & non-Swiss national."
