Application Based On: 7+ years residency, UK citizen
Applied On: 03/09/2018
Application received On: 04/09/2018
Acknowledgement and Second Letter: 11/09/2018 (Letter, passports and a receipt)
Awaiting On Approval: letter sent 01/04/2019 and got it today 03/04/19
Date of Ceremony: pending

Can't believe I received my letter today, I thought that it was cutting it too closely. Now just have to wait to see if I will be part of the April ceremony (will send my cheque on Friday) :)

BTW for those going to the next ceremony, what sort of time does it state that it starts? (Have to travel down from Galway, so am wondering if I need an overnight stay since it's not that easy to get to for me)

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.
