sound to me like they could not solve the problem of the process so the judge decided to a whole new rule to stop the flow of the applicants and reduce the pressure on the office.
That's a pretty wild theory, I hope you don't really believe it.

Re: Urgent help!!

This means they want you to submit your passports and evidence rent payments. It’s quite normal. Thanks, but what I have seen from people, they always ask to resubmit all original focs again. I am just wondering? I really want this nightmare to finish. As littlerr said, it's normal to be asked for ...

Re: Court rules "continuous residence" means you CANNOT LEAVE IRELAND AT ALL for year before application

Agree with everyone saying keep cool, this will be challenged by the Minister. Seems that the judge has got confused between "continuous residence" and "continuous presence". The legislation should be changed for clarity - at very least giving the Minister power to set limits. I've seen other immigr...

Re: delay in citizenship application - applied in 2016

According to INIS, in May 2019 there were 763 applications still waiting from 2016 (out of 13,000). Do you have the link? And if you go back to December 2018, there were 768 waiting from 2016. So a reduction of 5 in ~5 months... at this rate it will take 60 years to clear! https://www.oireachtas.ie...

Re: delay in citizenship application - applied in 2016

There are hundreds of TDs. Try another one. You're more likely to get a response from a TD who is not a Minister, and preferably an opposition TD as they have more time and motivation. I would also recommend using the Immigrant Council to help you with the request. Their services are free and they a...

Re: Acceptable Police Clearance for American?

I think they were underwhelmed with the response from the California Department of Justice; it's not on letterhead and is quite brief. What do you mean by "underwhelmed"? Generally they'll either accept evidence, or not. I agree with @littlerr - get the FBI one as you were asked to provide clearanc...

I got FOI on my application. It has been filled up to question 21 in which someone has signed and sent me second stage letter in the end of 2017 and no other question is filled. But there is another checklist (submission checklist prior to submission for Minister decision) which is all filled and s...

Naturalization, adult, been here more than 5 years.
What, exactly, were you asked to provide? You should check the wording carefully.

In my (similar) application I haven't been asked for a police cert of any sort from my previous country.

Anyone here who attended the June 25th ceremony in Waterford? From what I can see, only two people on this forum who applied in 2017 attended (but they applied earlier in the year than you did). It was mostly people from 2018 and a couple from 2019. I was there, as my wife (2018) got it. Anyone wit...

If the office is swamped, how is it possible that on one hand people are waiting for more than 4 months to get just the acknowledgment and on the other hand there are cases where one received the acknowledgement just in a week. If the office has huge backlog, the delay should have been uniform, isn...
