Why is the adjudication of some applications delayed for long periods of time after normal processing time?

0

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.
