Guys, I am shaking. Just got home from work and the brown envelope was there. Posted yesterday, after 1 year and 5 months I finally got my approval. Best of luck to all of you and I guess my theory was right!!!
Sorry to bother you, recently someone ask me which team deals final approval letter? Is it team 1.
It is Team 1 indeed. You also need to send the bank draft to them too.
Ok thanks
It will be helpful if we can figure it about those teams as last year applied couple of citizenship applications for friends but couldn't figure it out these teams, even I send a email to department but they didn't bother to answer about teams when I got reply.
Ye they are not very helpful, unfortunately

@Anira - Congrats on your approval! Great news!

We've been trying to call them since last week and the phone is either busy or keeps ringing out and nobody picks up. We called more than a 100 times yesterday and no response.

We also emailed them last week and didn't get a response to that as well.

It is quite frustrating as there is no transparency to this process at all. It seems that the citizenship department has actually gotten worse and worse over the years. :cry:

It is terrible... have you tried asking your local TD for an update? Mine seemed to move after that.

That will be the next step.

This is the 2nd time I am going through this process with my wife's application. Having done my own application in 2016/17, I made sure I did everything the same way I had done mine. We then got a letter requesting more documents/information and we responded back to each of their request in a lot of detail attaching the relevant supporting documentation. She then got the 2nd stage letter in July 2018 but since then it has been silence... Application continues to be processed! :!:

I got my 2nd letter 5 weeks after my application.l, in November 2017. Thought that meant it was going to be a quick one lol Definitely reach out to TD to get an “official” update.

When in 2017 did you apply Mrs P? I’ve given up calling it’s soul destroying - I emailed the other day and they just said continued to be processed in a normal way checking statutory conditions blah blah

I applied in early January 2017, with second-stage letter sent to me in July 2017; nothing since :(
Emailed them a couple of weeks ago & got reply that my application is being prepared for submission to the Minister.
Dont know how much long will it take now.

exactly my story :( called them today, a man told me I'm in the 2nd stage, asked them about external agency/garda info they're waiting for, he couldn't say anything about it, as if different people have different rights/skills to see info in their screens.
