Hi all,

Thank you for the fantastic community effort. I have received contradictory information from the FBR office when I have called up to check on wait times, so this thread and spreadsheet are a great help! I've been told today that I should expect a further 6 months wait, which would take the wait time up to 15 months (from 9-10 months). Does this match with what others have been told?

I'm trying to move to Brussels with my partner and have began receiving job offers that are pending work eligibility, so the uncertainty around the timeline is proving difficult when negotiating with potential employers (employers are generally are very reluctant to pursue visa sponsorship but obviously need a reliable timeline for citizenship).

Hi ,

Who told you to expect a further 6 months ? (you called the FBR office and provided your application number ) . I dont remember a time where those people tell accurate info TBH.

Is your application straight forward with documents ? (If not they might be right)

I can see that you are still at 8 months from confirmation email () , did you apply within Ireland ?



Cheers

Hi @teranos,

I called the FBR office, I didn't get as far as providing my application number. It's true that I've called a number of times and each time get a different estimate, but none as late as the recent one.

I applied outside of Ireland (England), and my application should be straightforward with all the documents.

I noticed from the spreadsheet that one of the recently approved ones (DC, 609) says there is a 2-3 month wait on printing. So, including delivery times etc, perhaps there will be a 6 month wait before I have a certificate in my hands and can apply for a passport.

Thanks!

i called FBR this morning.....about my wife's application made in January. Told they are currently taking 12-15 months and not to expect anything until November by way of update.

Very helpful but looks like a bit slower than expected.

Yes. A glut of FBR & passport applications has stretched their personnel thin.Right now they are starting to get through July 2023 applicants....slowly. I also think they are more picky now about documents & ask for more documents more often. Which means delays for those people. Patience is key and you're application is down the road for now.

HI Quick question
ref this section 8. Make sure you use the same witness for everything - stamp not needed but a business card is accepted no problem. I asked them to use the words - certified to be a true copy of the original seen by me; followed by name, job, date and signature for all documents.

i have all my stuff signed and ready to go but regarding my dads photocopy of his passport, will he need his witness to provide a stamp/ business card or can they just certify as you mentioned above and sign?
Parents ID needs to be certified by a witness from the list.Statement, sign, dated by a witness. No card is needed. I advise you get it notarized . I tell people to notarize everything if they can. Once notarized it's a government approved entity.

Looking at other peoples recent experiences, it seems to be taking 10-12 months. They'll always overshoot just to ensure that you're not hanging on for something before it's ready. Here is to hoping they get back to the 9 month timeline it was taking a month or two ago :)

Called the FBR helpline today out of curiosity as it has been 11 months now. Gave her my reference number and confirmed various details. She could see it was with the case worker and that no other documents are required (phew 8) ) and therefore it was with the case worker to conclude / approve currently.

My documents posted 13. July 2023 and after a long wait after the address check (8. April 2024) I received my congrats email yesterday. It seems like a few other people are filtering through, so hopefully whatever hold-up they had this spring is being resolved now. Can't be much longer! Good luck.

Cheers

By 'documents posted' I mean I received my confirmation email for receipt of documents on that day. Apologies for the ambiguity.

Cheers
