Stamp 4 20 months still good?

Post by chnstud » Thu Apr 29, 2021 11:31 am

On dec 2018, There was a temporary directive saying applicants can apply for stamp 4 after completing 20 months on CSEP. I know receipt and process start date will differ by a month. Does it still hold good?

If that's the case, i can apply early next week.

If other recent applicants for stamp 4 can chip in with recent trends, it will be great.

Yes, you can apply once you completed 20 months. However, the process will be started only on the completion of the 21st month.

At the moment, they completed processing the March 26th applications. So, you will get an email with the stamp4 support letter once it has been processed.

You can check the status on https://enterprise.gov.ie/en/What-We-Do ... ing-Dates/

I remember it from my CSEP application days 2 years ago..

The date has not moved from March 26 from May 3 to May 18. WTH is happening?

Anyway i found that i can't renew to stamp 4 even with support letter until 1 month from expiry.

Is there anything that can be done to renew before? Otheerwise i can't take a new job.

My date May 10 has finally been reached today on the page. How soon it can be processed to a support letter?

It took forever to go from May 4 to 10. Looks like beginning of month is very heavy in backlogs atm.

You should have got the letter in the email now. If not, it should be with you in a couple of days.

It was in the email a few hours ago...i have applied for GNIB renewal immediately.

The pleasant surprise was no passport and no irp card mailing this time. No printout of email either.

Just 300 euros.
