Illegal means anything that is against the law. Murder, Robbery, Rape, Drug dealing are all illegal activities and have different laws which deal with these.

Overstaying is also illegal and there are laws under which people are prosecuted if they overstay.

Check with your local HCI in Dublin.

At HCI London, you can get your OCI on the same day (in the evening) if you application was accepted in the morning. However this might not be the case with all HCI's.
