Application Based On EU Citizen, 18 years in Ireland

Applied Date: 13/08/2020
Application received Date: 14/08/2020
Acknowledgment Date: 27/08/2020
Second Letter: Pending
Approval: Pending
Date of Ceremony: Pending

27/08/2020 - Phone call (private number) to confirm address. 01/09/2020 received passports back, as well as the payment confirmation and application number. The letter says that the application is being processed and that they will contact me in case they need any other clarification / documentation, otherwise my file will be forwarded to the minister, in which case I will hear back from them „in due course” or as soon a decision has been made:) Timeframe for a straightforward application is 12 months.

UPDATE 12/12/2020

The letter that I have received today is the exact copy (word by word) of the letter I received on 27/08/2020. :roll:

I submitted an old version of the application form. I had know clue that it was changed. I honestly don't know if it will be sent back to me. The only difference is the numbers. Fingers crossed they refuse my application

Message received today:

"Your applications on behalf of yourself and your children have not yet been initially assessed. Once they have been initially assessed, you will receive letters with the application number and your receipt for your application fees. This office will be in contact in due course.

Update received:


Thank you for your email. Unfortunately due to the present circumstances in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic there may be a delay in assessing applications and the subsequent return of travel/original documents/fee receipts etc. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and are working as hard as we can to ensure this delay is as short as possible.

This office will be in touch in due course.

Second letter received today. Good character to be checked and a submission will be made to the minister for a decision. Fingers crossed!
I sent them mail few days ago asking why I received second letter, reference number and receipt for my application, but I didn't receive anything in respect of my children's application since we submitted our application at the same time and was received the same day. Here is their reply:


Thank you for your email. Please note that minor applications are dealt with in the different section then adult applications. Once the initial assessment of your children's applications has taken place you will receive
your application numbers and your receipts for your application fees. Your patience in this matter is appreciated.

Regards
