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...

My answers are about Citizenship... therefore not relevant if it's just residence permission

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: Spouse of an Irish National Application TIMELINES ONLY

I was just curious if people on this forum who have had to go through/currently go through the 12 month waiting time for the Spouse of an Irish National application could take a minute to fill out the below timeline? I didn't apply as Spouse of Irish National, but I have a bit of data on the applic...

Re: 2018 Citizenship Application TIMELINES ONLY

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: delay in citizenship application - applied in 2016

I've been asking a TD to ask regular written questions about numbers of applications outstanding. For those who applied in 2016.... In December 2018, there were 761 applications outstanding from 2016 In November 2018, there were 768 applications outstanding from 2016 (so only 7 received citizenship ...

Re: Inconsistent Signature

I know someone who was in the same situation. She did not keep a copy of the signatures so couldn't properly answer as to the exact differences. She wrote a letter that explained that after she got married her signature changed and the new signature has been "evolving", and that sometimes she accide...

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...

I wonder if there are any stats on how many people applied for naturalisation every year during the last few years?

You are still not getting it. The numbers still have no co-relation is the point being made, sitting in 2017, we would have looked at the past years and would have expected more approvals and more citizen but alas, in 2017 the percentage of waiting members jumped from 13% to 61% ....:D And you are ...

What do you mean? I think that lines up pretty accurately. Looks like 2017 had a high number of applications, meaning that processing times were longer.

Some more analysis on processing times, based on ~60 timeline posts to this site. Horizontal axis is the date the application was sent in. Left hand axis is days to acknowledge. Right hand axis is days to 2nd letter and days to approval. What I get from it is: processing times were high for applicat...

Re: Irish Citizenship application (Form 8) - How did you organise your application?

I've analysed posts on this site from 46 users in the 2017 and 2018 timeline posts. This gave me average timelines that are similar, but maybe a little longer than what you had. These timelines are for applications from Non-EU applicants with Stamp 4 residency. In my sample, I also checked EU applic...
