EU3 still pending decision after 1 year, did anybody get approval?

Post by BaboiDamo » Fri Mar 12, 2021 6:58 pm

Hi everyone,

My partner applied for permanent residency in March 2020 after 5 years of S4 EU Fam.
Her permit got extended 3 times so far, last time today, until Dec 2021, after she emailed EU Treaty Rights asking for an update... they said the decision is still pending.

Did anybody receive approval recently?
She is also a full time health care assistant but they don't seem to care...

Our problem is that her IRP shows a S4 now, not a EU Fam, so she should ask for Visa when traveling to Europe🤦

Thanks in advance

I personally don't recall anyone getting EU3 approval for 2020 in this forum though I have heard from outside sources few of them got with few months last year. Coz of Covid lockdown, the wait seems to be way over 6months.

We have applied for EU3 last month.

I reckon you must be a British Citizen. Did you apply for her S4 EUFAM to be changed to S4 part of the Card Exchange Program?

Also may I know when did EUTR mail you the S4 extension till Dec 2021?

Well let s wait and see.
No I m Italian, they give you a stamp 4 because the decision is pending and it is not granted under EU Treaty Rights, or at least that s what I understood.
We emailed yesterday.

Nevermind, that thread is locked.

@Moderators are we ok to open a new thread for EU3 Application Wait Time? No point in creating one if you are going to lock it.

Hi BaboiDamo

No news at all. I emailed EU Treaty rights yesterday requesting for a postal acknowledgement which they are yet to send through I obtained email acknowledgement n application reference number via email.

It would be great if you can update your timeline if you haven't already in the following thread that has been created.

No i haven't received anything so far.
Eu3 applied in October last year and i only got an acknowledgement soon after I applied.
S4euf expired in January this year.
I haven't sent them any email as i have seen a notice that all permissions are automatically extended until September 2021.

I am in the same situation. My wife and daughter applied for EU3 earlier this year. Current permit expires in July but as you mentioned, the permit is automatically extended until September 2021.

Here is my question though...if they travel outside of Ireland before July, will they be allowed back in the country in September after the stamp on their passport must have expired? Or must they be in Ireland until their EU3 application is approved? Thank you.

You see, according to Irish Immigration database, the permissions expires in September 2021. The issue is when you travel after Stamp 4 expiry data on Passport, how would the airline staff or border control outside Ireland would interpret is the question.

So I would email EU Treaty rights to issue a Temporary Stamp 4 extension letter n then get the Stamp 4 updated in the local Gards Station before travelling.

I hope it makes sense.

Hi guys, sorry to bump this, anybody got any news?
We are at the 15 months mark now...

I saw from other threads that recently there were approvals for EU1 s, so it seems that things are moving on...

Thanks

Thanks for your reply @Sunflower35,

I appreciate that our application may not be as straight forward as others since we are not married, but nothing changed after we got approved the EU1 in 2015 and they have not requested any additional document. Actually the EU1 was approved in 4 months, we applied with a solicitor back then.
However 15 months is starting to be a bit of a long time, if we don t get a reply in a couple of weeks I wonder if we should follow up with a solicitor again.
