Re: Children naturalization application

I had sent an email to the minister of justice 2 weeks ago. Got a response from her private secretary with a reference number the very next day. I have highlighted the ineffectiveness of her department. Total lack of transparency and unable to provide with any answer why an Irish born child's natura...

Re: Citizenship delays: FOI and an application for an Order for Mandamus via the High Courts

"the record concerned does not exist or cannot be found after all reasonable steps to ascertain its whereabouts have been taken" You should first rule out the first part of that statement that is the record concerned does not exist. Maybe if you have an email where you inquired about the status of m...

Re: Citizenship delays: FOI and an application for an Order for Mandamus via the High Courts

Last month I made a request FOI on citizenship file and they wrote in their acknowledgement that: "A final decision on your request would normally be sent to you within 4 weeks, where a week is defined as 5 working days excluding the weekend and public holidays. This means that you can expect a dec...

Re: Citizenship delays: FOI and an application for an Order for Mandamus via the High Courts

Thanks Verona. I am just paranoid that if I request an FOI too early that the department will "mark" my application and then delay my application i.e. I don't want to upset them or give them a reason to delay my application :-) Your paranoia is not unfounded. You might be right. The officers in thi...

Re: Citizenship delays: FOI and an application for an Order for Mandamus via the High Courts

What is a reference letter in naturalisation application? a letter about you that one of your referees may be asked to write. My friend was contacted and she gave them a short reference which I don't see it in the disclosure. If you are confident that Department is breaking the law, then speak to a...

Re: Citizenship delays: FOI and an application for an Order for Mandamus via the High Courts

By the way, we have a fresh example just a couple of months ago where a person's citizenship application was rejected due to unauthorised travel history. That person had been demeaning to INIS (and to Vorona :p) saying that the FOI revealed they haven't done anything for over 2 years, when in fact ...

Re: Citizenship delays: FOI and an application for an Order for Mandamus via the High Courts

A veteran of 2 FOIs, I can confirm that in the last 3 years of the processing of my application, no request had been made to any foreign country/authority where I have lived in the last 9 years prior to my application.

Has anyone here contacted the office of the Ombudsman for the delay in decision? The reason why I ask is I want to throw the Spam sink at them.

Re: FOI for citizenship application

You make a request on behalf of your child. Your will need to provide your child’s ID as part of the application. Each FOI deals with one applicant only, so you need two applications for two children. Just to add, you also need a letter from your spouse consenting to release the record of your chil...

Re: Citizenship delays: FOI and an application for an Order for Mandamus via the High Courts

My problem with going the JR route is why do some applicants have to spend more for the same privilege as any other applicant who gets a decision within months? Time and again we have seen on this forum where applications have not been touched in years and in some cases only action is a yearly ritua...
