Why is the adjudication of some applications delayed for long periods of time after normal processing time?
Although on occasion the reason for government adjudication delay may be an investigation of a particular factual or legal issue or even the governments mishandling or losing of a file, the very large percentage of delayed application are delayed because of pending security, name check or criminal clearances. Since these clearances are considered a matter of national security, the government will not provide any details regarding the type of clearances that are pending or any likely date for resolution of the clearances.
