I think after Second Stage comes the final stage I.e submission to the minister. So you should stay hopeful for the next ceremony.
Plus if a letter says that the application has been moved to the second stage, it means it s on second stage I.e character checks etc.

My application based on Irish association from Northern Ireland. I didn’t get second stage letter yet they just told me my application has crossed second stage over the phone on Thursday. And soon they will send it to minister in next batch.😄

hi the letter which you got in Jan 2018 in which they says your application passed initial stage and processed to second stage it was a actual second stage letter , so you already got your second stage latter in Jan 18 but after second stage letter they took too long to proceed your application from Jan 2018 up now did they ever asking you more documents or any other clarification?
so Good luck

Been calling INIS on ‭+353 (62) 32 500‬ as I’m calling from outside Ireland,to check the status of wife’s application and the phone rings and rings then call gets cancelled or number busy you ring back then same again, what a disgrace you can’t get speaking to anyone.

Eventually got through to the INIS.. they said my wife’s application is still being processed and will go through a final check and that apparently there is a Brexit backlog, probably another year before we get any result, 1 year and 7 months later and still nothing the whole process has been a joke.

Hi mufc69,

I think best way will be writing a letter to under Freedem of Information. In this way they are obliged to give you information what is happening with your case.

I am starting to hear more and more cases where people are request,ng information on their File. Under the Act of FOI we are entitled to request this.

Check this link: blog/forum/discussion website link removed by moderator

I am planning to write a letter to INIS requesting information on my case.

I wouldn’t waste my time to be quite honest. We’ve been waiting over 1 year and 7 months and many people on here are getting their approvals within months.. I don’t know if it’s a filtering process depending on which country the applicant is from (my wife’s from Philippines), EU family seem to be getting approvals the fastest from what I’ve seen on timelines, I’m also applying from Northern Ireland and I don’t know if that’s against us either.

Actually EUFAM applicants are waiting more according to people on this website.
I am an EUFAM as well. And it is almost 2 years.

Holding a case more than 1 year is not normal. 2 years definitely not where most of the people get approvals or responds within 6 months or less than 1 year.

In my opinion if they think that your marriage is a marriage of convenience/sham. They will let you the wait a lot.
I really dont understand how INIS works. I have met people who have criminal record, people with extreme islamist idea ( Sympathiser of extremist groups) etc.
Those people get approval quickly with no issue but We have to wait!!!!
I really dont understand the system in this country.

The only think that I know complaining on this website is not helping us. We have to fight for our right. We have move ourself. Sitting here and just complaining wont get us to anywhere....

As they told me 2 weeks ago that my application has passed second stage and waiting to send to the minister in next batch and after that i got an email update today the exectly words they send me in an email i am going to copy paste. Is there anyone can tell me what exactly there mean is🤔. Is it mean am i still on second stage??🤭🤭


In response to your query regarding the delay in processing your
application, please note that to allow the Minister to grant a certificate
of naturalisation to an applicant, several statutory conditions must be
met. One of these conditions is that an applicant must be of good
character. To this end each application is forwarded to An Garda Síochána
for a character check. This process was applied to your application.

In some circumstances that can be established relatively quickly and in
other cases, such as this case, completing the necessary checks take a
longer period of time.

Your case therefore requires further consideration and case assessment.
Additional information may be requested from you in due course. When all
necessary information has been compiled your file will be submitted to the
Minister for decision as expeditiously as possible.

From what i read your case wont be send to minister very soon. Yes, you seem to be in second stage but they made clear that It will take time to do assestment on your case.

Ofcourse this is what I read. I hope I am wrong but it might be that they will take their time to go through your case.

Just rang again and still waiting for submission. She said it may take a while to hear back but that I should hear back before next ceremony. She didnt mention a month, just next quarter of 2019. I guess we will have to wait a tad more...
