12 Days Since Notice of Readiness - Dublin

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey VJers!

My fiance sent in his Notice of Readiness to the Dublin Embassy via email 12 days ago and still no word. :clock: When we called last week, they said they would email us when it's ready but couldn't give us any information other than that, even if they had actually received it or not. It seems like others have gotten their dates within just a couple days, even those who have sent their notice in AFTER we have.

Any ideas? Should we send it again? Is there somewhere we should call/email for an inquiry?

Thanks all! :thumbs:

Mine took 8 days between when I emailed my NOR to them and when they gave me an appointment, AND I had been pestering them. Check your spam, but don't worry too much. You can always email them again and ask.

I would email them ASAP. We had a problem with receiving emails from them; however when they responded to our inquiries we received them without a problem. You could have an appointment and not even know it - like we did. Good luck.

Thanks again for everyone's advice!

We decided to email them again, just forwarding the same email that we had originally sent. This time we got a confirmation that they received the email, and then the very next day we got our interview date. Makes me feel like if we had just emailed them again sooner, we could have already had our interview :( But I guess the waiting game continues. Our interview is set for September 15th ^_^
