Congratulations , what time please ?just to know there are 3 ceremonies as well or no.
It said to register at 9.30am so I think it’s the first ceremony of the day (not sure what time it starts though)
Can I ask which Team dealt with your final paperwork?

I would like to know this question aswell. I’m on team 5.
I had an email from Team 5 in September and another from Team 23 in November, but I not convinced that the team allocation really means anything, to be honest.

One thing that may be of interest (though, again, this is pure conjecture) is that when my application was being "processed" or "at the advanced stage of processing" and I emailed to check on it's status, I would always got a reply back in a day or two.

However, I emailed around the middle of January to check on things and received no reply (other than the automated one) only to receive the approval a week or so later. I then emailed a couple of times once I'd sent in my cheque and photos (to check if they received them) but received no reply, only to receive my invite last Friday.

So - and take what you will from this - in my own experience, it feels like they are more likely to reply when your application is stalled or being reviewed. However, if you're about to receive a letter of some kind (be it an approval, invitation, etc) then they are less likely to respond to your emails, perhaps taking the view of "well, they'll find out soon enough anyway".

I applied on 3rd March 2018. Wife applied January 2019. Both on 5 years residency. Applied for 2 kids on the basis of Irish associations. We all received 2nd stage letters in June 2019 advising applications ll be submitted to the minister for approval. I called them in early December 2019 and they said it ll be probably processed for spring ceremonies. Still no sign. I emailed them last week and they replied applications being prepared for submission to the minister. I emailed back about what I was told in December 2019. Anyone else with same situation?

I got my approval on 24th of Jan, sent the fee on 4th Feb. No invite, not feeling hopeful I'll get one.

I don't know why it's done by regular post. Invites could easily get lost in the post and no one would be any the wiser. It should either be done by email and you have to confirm your attendance, or it should be done online.
