I attended the ceremony in May.

You will be given the receipt of 950 payment on the day of the Ceremony along with your certificate of Naturalization.
After sending 950 and your GNIB, next you should receive a letter of invitation to the ceremony.

A lot of people seem to have received their approvals but it looks like they’ve stopped sending them out...

it seems like they have done sending letters for now)

I applied back in November 2017, got the confirmation letter that the application has moved to the next stage but got nothing else since then.
Kinda stopped hoping to make it to this year's ceremony(

Can you guys share the email where I can ask for a status of application? is it the one - citizenshipinfo@justice.ie

How soon they normally reply (do they?)

Thanks!

Morning guys,

I hope this message finds you well.

I would like to ask you from you experience because it makes me worry when I read your comment guys. I applied for the citizenship on Nov 17 and I got the letter about initial stage where they said my application is in the process now (I believe all my documents were fine as they never asked me to provide them anything). The thing is, I have not heard from them since then, it's going to be a year waiting for them also I have been reading some people received second stage approval thing? I have not got that. Additionally, I read recently that they do not send you second stage approval, only invitation if you application went in the process from first as long as they do not ask you for additional documents then it's in the process until they give you the decision either invitation to cermony or refusal letter thing.

Can you please advise me what to do or I just keep waiting?

Thanks alot
Did you try contacting them directly? You must have a reference number on the letter you received: give them a call and ask about your application.
Yes, I have got my reference number, I have not contacted them but I have emailed them today and will see what they will tell me. I will update you guys here if they give me a useful answer.

Thanks
any news since?

Hi there,

Yeah, I have emailed them on (citizenshipinfo@justice.ie).

I emailed them requesting update on my application as I am worried that I got no answer since they give me the reference number, I sent email on 29/9/2018 and they replied back on 03/10/2018 as you see few days which is great and quick response.

Their reply was:

Your application is currently being processed with a view to establishing whether it meets the statutory conditions for the granting of naturalisation, such as good character and lawful residence, and will be submitted to the Minister for decision as expeditiously as possible.

Which means I am definitely not in this ceremony (Hopefully next one). I do not know if we are in a Queue to the minister to sign it up or else.

Anyway, I believe the long waiting period vary (from a country to another) based where you come from .

If they are running checks on you in Ireland, it's a matter of few days, within the system but to check you in your original country, that takes ages, that's what I presume.

Email them and let me know what they have told you.

Regards

Mine is also straightforward so I don't know why they're taking so long. Also, I don't think they'll start sending out invitations so soon

There is nothing indicating what qualifies a straightforward application however, my assumption is that two factors rely on the answer of an application, 1. Your original country (I believe they do check up on you where you are born and it depends from a country to another, might be quick or slow but you can imagine how the world works these days :?) 2. Your number in the queue after the check up is done.

That's what I believe but might be wrong. However, enjoy the waiting. I gave up about this ceremony hopefully next one then :mrgreen:

I guess every one waiting the invitations checking the post regulary each morning same as like me :)
Invitations will be sent 4 to 5 weeks ahead of the date of ceremony, that would be the last week of October.

Exactly what I'm doing but then letters to Northern Ireland arrive three days after date of issue so I'm counting on some of you Republic-based candidates to report your invitations ASAP so I know when to *really* look! :D

Waiting on the invite here in NI too. Got approval in August. Will post as soon as that brown envelope (has always been the colour their correspondence comes in) drops through the letter box. We’ve booked a hotel in Killarney for the date but don’t want to really jinx it by telling anyone or making concrete travel arrangements until it’s all confirmed!

Hey guys, do you know how long it takes to hear from them after it's been sent to the Minister?

They're probably waiting to approve everything at once. Don't think they'd be doing it file by file, but in a pile/all at once instead

sent them bank draft and garda card 3 weeks ago, today they sent garda card back and ask to send them garda card which should be valid on the date of ceremony, my garda card is expiring on 11th November and ceremony is on 26th November, i assuming they want me to renew visa and send them new garda card.

you'll have to renew your GNIB card to be valid on the day of the ceremony I'm afraid. it's a shame you'll spend 300 euros for just a couple of weeks, that really sucks. so am i correct in thinking that they send you the approval letter knowing that your GNIB card will expire before the ceremony?
