Is it for a civil service position? Clearance should be back in a few days unless you need enhanced vetting.
You can always give them a bell:

Have you lived outside of Ireland for more than 6 months?
The garda could be waiting for confirmation back that you have no criminal record in another jurisdiction.
No way of telling how long that can take, but might be worth calling them if that's a possibility.

Good morning everyone
I'm currently at clearance stage for a job opportunity. Unfortunately I have been waiting for the garda clearance for over 25 weeks.
I tried to find out what's going on but no luck.
Is anyone here facing the same issue?
I have no criminal records.

What is enhanced vetting? What job would require enhanced full clearance? Currently working in a children’s charity that works with extremely vulnerable children and my department processes the vetting applications and I’ve never heard of this? I personally don’t process any of it but I’m curious to know. I thought vetting was only for those working with children and vulnerable adults so is it possible it is a different type of clearance?
For us any employee who would come in contact with any of the children, even a cook - requires Gardai Vetting which takes a couple of days and then clearance from any other country they’ve lived in for more than 6 months. I always thought the Gardai processed these too but you actually need to seek the clearance yourself from the embassy mostly.

Does anyone know what can impact enhanced garda vetting? Im waiting on enhanced garda clearance. I have no criminal records, no family involved in criminal activity, But I live in a shared house (not much option in Dublin) and one of my previous housemates was involved in criminal activity. Garda was looking for him, he was involved in some gangsta stuff. They had a warrant to search the house and all.. He flew the country before they came after him. We were not friends just happen to live in a shared house. But im worried that it can impact my garda clearance that i lived in the same house with this criminal. Its not my fault at all, i have no connections with him, my landlord rented the room to him. Does anyone know, could it be a deal breaker?
