    So my brother and niece are due to travel on the 26th over to visit my other brother for 2 weeks. My brother's visa still hasn't been granted, he's had past criminal convictions years ago, minor, was never imprisoned. They have still not given any decision despite him telling them how soon he's travelling. What's the likelihood he'll receive a decision before Monday do you think? Woyld anybody know of anyway to go about expediting their decision? Any advice is welcome.

    This close to Christmas? I'd say you're stuffed.

    Why would you wait until literally the last day? If you had asked even this week you might have had time to go to the embassy but now you're probably too late.

    On the other hand, letting criminals in is sort of their MO.

    This embassy:

    Address
    47 - 49 St Stephen's Green
    Dublin 2, Ireland
    Switchboard: +353 1 664 5300
    Email: [email protected]

    You might have applied for it a while ago but you've left it too late to have any chance of getting the embassy to sort it out for you before Christmas. Or at least get an answer.

    I imagine they will be working on Monday but that is cutting it very fine. Have they given him any indication of why is it taking so long. Will he get a refund on his flights if it isn't granted?

    Don't think they'll get a refund unfortunately and no, no reason for the delay even though they're aware of their travelling dates.
