All I know is it’s very random. Though I read here applying based on spouse of Irish citizen is quicker then the rest. Also most of the time people are stuck on second stage.nad2107 wrote: ↑Tue Mar 13, 2018 10:39 amHi
admin please delete if not allowed to start a new thread. has anyone had an naturalisations applications approved recently. i was just speaking with someone who applied in january 2018 and received approval this morning. now that is record time this was for based on eu4 treaty rights having completed five years.
do you know if there is a certain process they work within to give some people answers so quickly and then some like us been waiting for over a year. we are both in same category with spouses from same countries and been here in similar times. both work in same industry and so many similar scenarios however hers was processed within 3 months and we are still awaiting some response.
Is there like a government body one can go to to make some kind of complaint or something to help speed up process apart from TDs.
Just so confused how two people fro two same back grounds in same jobs earning same amounts, living 3 doors away from each other can get processed so differently.
Any idea anyone please.
Just apply , i applied with 6 month letf , i updated them with another temps visa in january (scan copy sent by e-mail) and i got approval in 7 months so i think it has no impact , u need to keep them update with any new resident permit by e-mail scan before they ask that way you dont waste time
I'd say so! If it is further processing stage it means that they're only doing now the background checks on you and will send it to the Minister asap. It shouldn't take more than 2 months - but you never know...
@Chels congratulations one year is a longtime waiting but I guess at the end it was all worth it. Timeline like yours still give a lot of us hope. In my case, It appears that I’m still in the second stage but according to the guy I spoke to over the phone, it looks like they have completed their checks and my application will be submitted to the minister as “expeditiously as possible”. Not sure when to hear from them at this stage but I have moved on for my sanity They can write me whenever they can. It’s been a difficult seven months, I rush home from work assuming the postman passed by. Not surprising though I come home to takeaway leaflets and utility billschels wrote: ↑Tue Mar 27, 2018 4:46 pmYep - I received an approval letter last week! exactly 1 year, 1 month and 23 days after applying!
I was expecting delays from the outset as I have some complexity in my case (already a dual national of UK & US so double the legwork for them) but have to say I was still surprised it took as long as it did. That said I think the delays over the past year can be directed attributed to the influx of Brexit motivated applications. Speculation of course but there was a lot of media coverage about the increase in passport applications so I assume there must have been similar with naturalization!
