Got my certificate this morning! Yay! Only negative is unfortunately they didn't put "do not bend" on the envelope so unfortunately the postman bent it slightly into the letterbox, so my certificate has a big crease down it :( Not the end of the world obviously, but a little bit annoying.

Just so pleased its all finally done.
I had to get mine from the Post depot. I got only a delivery note in my post box. So thankfully mine is intact.
Congratulations to everyone that have received it!

I applied January 2019, got approved in February 2020 because covid had to wait a year.

It seems (from one of his previous posts) that he got his approval last February.

Now, the passport application journey, Due to COVID 19 Level 5 restrictions adviced that we can apply online but (DO NOT ) send any documents yet untill we move to Level 4 COVID 19 restrictions.
The reason is that you need to post a number of documents to them for a first-time application. Level 5 prevents any staff from travelling to the work place at the moment, so nobody will be in the office opening envelopes during this period.

You should apply only when the restriction is reduced to Level 4 or below, when passport office staff can return to the work place.

Of course you can fill in your application form now and get Gardai to sign your application form etc. Just don't send anything to the passport office.
May thanks littlerr.
I have decided to apply online and hold on sending the documents untill level 4 restrictions are in place ( Hopefully by March)

Hi MiMi,

Is this possible for you to check with Police in Belfast that you can travel to Dublin to submit this document? Hope they will allow (as I can see you waited for these 2 + years) all the very best 👍🏻

Travelling from NI just for witnessing a declaration for citizenship is not an essential travel.
Don't risk being fined.

I don’t think they will say nothing if your going to submit a important letter

Hello all

Can anyone please advise on which commissioner for oaths, solicitor, or a peace commissioner who is authorised to take and receive statutory declarations. The ones that I have contacted are telling me they are not doing anything until restrictions have been lifted. I have noticed some have got their citizenship certificates already. I cant wait forever especially after having waited for 2 years. County Meath or Dublin preferably but don't mind travelling if push comes to shove.

Posting contacts details of legal professional is not allowed on the forum.
Try better, or just wait until lock down ends and legal services providers reopen.

Hello,
I advise you to call all the lawyers in your area, I am sure you will get one that will accept to sign it. I got mine signed after calling all the lawyers in the county. if I was you I would not wait until the lockdown is lifted, anyone advising you otherwise I am sure they wouldn't wait themselves.
Best of luck to you

Has there been any indication since on when the next set of naturalization certificates would be sent out?

The first set was sent 3 weeks after the first set of affidavits and as of today it's been 3 weeks since the second set of affidavits.

I am still waiting for the certificate (received the email with an affidavit on 20/01 and my signed declaration was delivered on 27/01). I think my issue is that my declaration was witnessed in NI by a NI solicitor (my best shot in the lockdown conditions). I sent them an email asking if there is an issue with my declaration and received a copy-paste reply "wait 6 weeks, then contact us".
