Re: Citizenship - What are the contents of the 2nd Letter?

You are asking about the second stage letter, which is not the same as a second letter. According to many people who have posted here, the second stage letter clearly states that your application has been moved to the second stage of processing.

Re: Citizenship application passport return query

My wife applied for citizenship on 5th March . She still has not received her original passport back . It’s around 6 weeks now. It's not unheard of for passport return to take this long. The average time over the last year is ~30 days. (based on 64 applications). I also tried calling them today wit...

In total, I've got a list of 302 applications (both approved and waiting).
The charts above update automatically whenever I add new data to the set, so the numbers in text are now out of sync with the charts. Now based on 323 applications.

Re: Application time Analysis

I've done further analysis on the data I collect from this forum. For those who watch the timeline threads closely, you probably know this intuitively, but I think it's always helpful to back up intuition with data. With the recent wave of approvals, there is quite a bit more data to look at. In tot...

Could you share your full timeline (e.g. when you applied, on what basis)?

Re: Citizenship applications from 2017 pending approval

Seems there is no more apprivals and another wait of 6months. For the most recent ceremony (26/11/2018) the final approval I know of was received on 2/11/2018... so just 24 days before the ceremony. That is unusual compared to earlier ceremonies, but who knows for this time. @hakeem , would you min...

Re: Teams and stages

I guess Im just trying to figure out if team 2 deals with stage 2, since we know that team 1 deals with the final step (ie approval). And whether having a reference number is an indication that your application has moved forward to stage 2. I'm not sure how knowing the teams helps anything... but I...

Re: delay in citizenship application - applied in 2016

For the last ceremony (26/11/2018) the approvals came out around 22/10 or 35 days before the ceremony.

That would mean for ceremony on 29/4/2019 the approvals would be out on 25/3... so still a couple of weeks to wait.

Re: Help with Application for Naturalization please!!!!

Short answer is that you should do exactly what they asked you to do. 1) I stupidly answered yes to Q5.6 and they request " dates and details for all absences over six weeks from 2014 to 25/02/2019." I find this confusing as I have never been absent for over six weeks in one go. It was cumulative. D...

Re: Spouse of an Irish National Application TIMELINES ONLY

It's hard to say how long it might take... if you are a "straightforward" case it might be quick. Some examples: Applicant from April 2018 approved in 98 days Applicant from March 2018 approved in 159 days 3 applicants in Feb 2018 approved in 259, 262, 285 days 5 applications before those all took a...

Re: Application time Analysis

I'd guess a lot of people on this forum have their own way of tracking/analysing... and guessing how long their application will take. For individuals, the time it will take to get an approval is unpredictable, but in aggregate the information is interesting. Have done some analysis myself. The char...

Re: Pending naturalisation applications petition

I've no comment on whether your petition is a good idea or not, but can I suggest asking a TD to ask a parliamentary question to this effect. Then you will get official information instead of comments on a bulletin board. Replies are required within 3 parliamentary sitting days (i.e. about a week, d...
