Yes. Stamp 4S is considered "reckonable residence" in Ireland for the purposes of naturalisation. This program provides a path to Irish citizenship. It will take 5 years in most cases.

Hi there.

I am waiting on my decision as well. Portal still stuck on submitted. Till 6th of sep there were 2364 cases completed so far as per the question asked in parlimant as you can see below for the reference. I suppose there should be 400 to 500 left approx. to dealt with. I hope we will get sorted soon.

Basically most cases are complete. This scheme had near 100% success rate. All people who qualified for the scheme received positive reply. I don't know anyone who met the criteria and got refused. They were quite lenient in many cases. Of course many others applied as well and it will affect overall approved numbers.

Short answer: No. No. No. There is no basis of skipping a queue without a valid reason.

Long answer: You cannot get an emergency appointment if you do not have an emergency. Emergency appointments must be requested by yourself so no paid system either. If you do have a genuine and valid reason, you can obtain an emergency appointment by emailing the Burgh Quay email address (normally given within a few days), or by walking in (for same-day appointments).

Nonsense. When I went to Burgh Quay to ask about my letter, they offered me appointment next week without me asking for it. They gave me a slip with the time and date on it. They encourage people to acquire valid status as soon as possible.

It all depends on how busy it is and the mood of the receptionist I’d say. My girlfriend had a genuine emergency in September 2 years ago and was at risk losing her residency due to an immigration officer’s error, and it still took her a whole hour’s arguing with them and talking to their supervisor before the supervisor gave her a ticket. The supervisor eventually apologised to us and told us that too many people have been trying to make up excuses for having emergencies.

For my friend, portal "Completed" on Friday 10/11/19 and Registered Letter with Stamp 4S Visa received today 15/10/2019. Applied 24/10/2018, so almost a full year, and no additional info requested. I suspect we were are one of the final applications in this tranche. But if you are still waiting, hang in there! Thanks to all for the updates along the way, and for everyone sticking together.
