It is possible that Garda clearance is quicker for people who hold Gard Card (not Green book) since beginning. You might recall, we used to hold Green Book earlier and I don't think GNIB has computerised Green Bank card holders and hence delay. I noticed that Garda clearance is faster for people who...

Basically it looks that we will have to wait at least 4 months more, after the initial 3 years. The bad thing is that we...

It is possible that Dept hired Contractors just to check the files and ready for making decisions. In any case, it's good to see that some progress is being made. I guess they still have to get Garda clearance. Do they also wait for the references letter from the references given in the application?...

What additional documents are they asking to provide? It is possible that they are just checking whether you are still in the country or not.

Excellent. I would urge other members, who has legal/journalism experience to fine tune the letter. This is the start. We should start sending letters to TDs/Justice Minister/Integration Minister/Taoiseach by emails/Post. I am sure it does make difference. Even, if it does not we are not losing anyt...

Hi If we can agree on a letter, we all can send the same letter to respective TD's and also to the Justice Minister. I can also ask my friends, who are also in the same position to send the letter. If we can get atleast 100 members, then we can get some attention. I can promise around 10-20 members....
