How to Apply for Ireland Re-Entry Visa via Registered Post

Three weeks prior to Christmas, I had received a brown envelope containing my Philippine passport stamped with my re-entry visa. Being a procrastinator, I failed to get a slot online for appointment in person at the Visa Processing Office in Dublin. Because it is peak season, there were no more available slots for a personal appointment and my only option is to apply via registered post. Truth is, I was a skeptic at first. What if the documents will be lost? It would be troublesome. However, it did not happen of course so here I am giving you instructions on how to apply for re-entry visa via Registered post.
