After Submission

Your application will be considered by the Irish Government decision making centre. The decision making centre may ask for more information, another document, or for you to attend an interview. If this happens you will be contacted by e-mail or telephone.

After the decision making centre has made a decision on your application, your documents will be delivered to you by post if you have selected this option, or you can pick them up in person from the visa application centre.
