Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
Though we all hope we get our EU3 sooner, it is highly unlikely that you will get your approval before July as I know people who applied last year are still waiting the approval.mrworld9 wrote: ↑Wed Apr 07, 2021 7:54 pmThanks a million for the reply. Much appreciated.
Here are the details....my wife and daughter joined me in Ireland on September 01, 2015 and we sent in the EUFAM application the very next day. The first stamp on my wife's passport was dated 7th December 2015 with permission to remain in Ireland until 17th April, 2016. My daughter's passport was not stamped at that point as I believe she was covered by her mom's stamp.
After approval, the 2nd stamp was dated 25th July, 2016 for both my wife and daughter which will be expiring on July 11, 2021. To answer your question, I submitted their EU3 applications on March 10, 2021- about 4 months (124 days to be precise) to the expiration of their EUFAM stamp. I would have been cool with extending the EUFAM permit (Now IRP) but I couldn't find any information about extension and I thought I should just apply for EU3 before it was too late. If anyone has any information on extension of EUFAM permit, please share.
As for citizenship, I think I'd wait until I'm certain they have meet the conditions for reckonable residence before applying. I'm just hoping that their EU3 application is approved before the current stamp expires.
Once again, thanks for the reply @littlerr.
