They could also be asking for it because it has been 12 months since the first documents were sent in and they want more recent documents now so they are sure that they are still living together as a married couple.

Now I see the reason why his application is taking soo long. His case is really complex!. How have you decided that his application is "really complex"? His attempt to enter the UK and subsequent refusal do not make this a "really complex" case. Ok, I hope you know that the possibility of the long ...

Should I keep the citizenship tracker site going?

Hi folks, As some of you may remember, I set-up the Citizenship Application Tracker a few years ago when citizenship applications were taking years to process. From what I can see, the timelines have now sped up, and I'm not sure of the value any more. Also, people don't seem to be updating their de...

"Without Condition" is Stamp 6, however no GNIB card endorsed with same will be issued, since Irish nationals are not registered by the GNIB. Only Irish citizens or persons who are entitled to be Irish citizens are eligible for the Without Condition endorsement. Thanks Ben. Yeah from what I read, a...

Agreed. I also don't see how difficult it is to schedule 6-12 ceremonies per year ahead of time and let applicants decide which date suits them best. Surely it's a waste of everyones time having INIS ringing applicants and applicants ringinig INIS. How difficult would it be to have a web form applic...
