Hi dubnew,
One of my friend got refusal letter today,they have said in the letter that he changed his status so he is not eligible for this scheme.
Hi Mark_ir,

Very sad to hear. No words to say. Did he apply 4.7?

He couldn't apply under 4.7 as he didn't know about it.he just only found out when his visa was expired.As you know person should need to have valid permission to apply under 4.7.
He have leave to remain application pending in the department now.

Under Luximon & Balchand judgment April 2018:

"the Minister must consider a person’s right to family and private life in Ireland when an application for a Change of Status is made under section 4.7 of Immigration Act 2004."

I understand his section 3 application is pending but he should apply 4.7 too.

INIS conclude 4.7 application very quickly according to MRCI. He might get lucky.

Visa is not mandatory.

If he came on student visa, has strong roots in Ireland etc living here for very long time, tax payer , no burden on state, family here, school going or Irish born kid.

That page updated January 2016 as you can see bottom of the page.

That's the minister policy before April 2018 and they didn't update after judgement.

Hi,

I have applied for this scheme in December. I was told by one of the migrant support group that some people who were denied permission until now had a different status during their residence. I dont know if they make exception to this eligibility criteria since they specifically state you should not have changed your status to any other status other than student.

I also find its quite frustrating to wait all this time without being able to plan the future. I am hoping to hear from them in March.

You know I have been praying and hoping that one of us in here would tell us they got response,as that would have given me hope.I stopped working( my visa expired 04/10) since October until now,small savings that I had are now drained.I thought 4 months would be enough for them to have responded but I was wrong.I feel lost,confused,alone and scared of how Im going to survive if I dont get response before end of March.

I have emailed them asking how far they were with my app or to atleast estimate waiting time, no reply yet.I apologise for pouring my fears/frustrations on you, I just thought you will understand better since we are on the same boat.
I wish you all luck and pray we all get approvals asap.God bless you.

Hi Brianah,
I understand your frustrations as I'm in a somewhat similar situation except my current 1G permit expires at the end of May. I have a short term job contract which also expires at the end of May after which I'll be relying on savings to survive. I log in every day to check for updates and reassure myself that all hope is not lost. Hang in there because I strongly believe you'll have a reason to smile soon. I hope we will hear from them by the end of March. Stay strong, hugs and God bless....

Hi Mark_ir,

INIS received approximately 3,100 applications and made a decision in approximately 560 cases till 12/03/19 according to Minister of Justice.

What you think how long it going to take to complete all applications ? Very disappointed.
