I finally got all my documents together just in time for the new lockdown. Sigh. I thought I'd may as well send them off so they are ready to process once 'Dublin returns to tier 3'. Unfortunately, I lost the tracking number for my package but I did send it recorded 1st class delivery, about a week ago. I haven't heard anything back which obviously makes sense because there's no one working there but I did start to panic a little
1. Can I expect to get a 'confirmation of receipt' email once they do reopen their office?
2. Should I be worried that the package is lost forever/if there is physically nobody there to receive it?
3. Would also be great to hear from anyone who submitted during the first lockdown or now
Hey schmood I sent my digital app at the end of March, and my paper docs immediately afterwards. They didn’t get to Ireland until May 26, during the first lockdown. The governments were limiting the amount of planes in and out of the countries and USPS told me they were essentially waiting to fill the plane with mail before it got sent off.. I never got an email saying it was received but when I contacted the web chat service a few weeks ago they said they had received it and my timeline of 12-18 months would begin from May 27 so right now I have supposedly 6-12 months left. They have such a big estimate window bc so think they were anticipating another lockdown. Even though they are closed, they are definitely still accepting apps. So, I wouldn’t expect to hear anything but try contacting the office when they open back up and see if they’ve received it. Good Luck!
