Re: Affidavits for approved applications and next ceremony

Just an update.

I received my certificate of naturalisation today.

Applied in June 2019 and approved in Oct 2020. Sent docs in in early March 2021. Cert was printed in late April 2021.

Many thanks for the support too. :)

I wish everyone the best! Xx

I guess it depends on where you are based? I am in Kildare and rang the Garda Station and they gave me an appointment for 2 weeks later. Good luck!
Indeed.
