UPDATE

Application Based On: NonEU (Stamp 1 + Stamp 4) 5 years residency
Applied On: 25/02/2019
Application received On: 26/02/2019
Acknowledgement received: 12/03/19 dated 08/03/19 from Team 2 with original documents and receipt, and letter requesting the following:
1) I stupidly answered yes to Q5.6 and they request " dates and details for all absences over six weeks
from 2014 to 25/02/2019."
2) "Please complete enclosed statutory form as previous form was incorrectly completed and must be
identified by an up to date passport." I have sent one signed by a solicitor who identified me using my I.D
as my passport was with DJE. I then sent a third one with a solicitor witnessing it.
3) Bank statements for 3 months of 2014 and 2019. (This was in bold). lol

Second Letter: 16/07/2019 dated 13/06/2019

Awaiting On Approval: Just rang the department and while they are still waiting on the new bill before they can continue processing, I was assured that my approval is pending red tape. ("its a done deal" to quote the man on the line)
Date of Ceremony: Pending
