Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

The person concerned entered the State in 1998 and was given permission to remain in the State on visitor's conditions. Extension of this permission was refused in December 2003 because there was insufficient documentation to enable the immigration officer to make a decision on the application. The person in question should apply in writing to the immigration division of my Department which is located at 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2, clearly setting out the grounds on which she seeks to have her permission to remain in the State extended. On receipt of her request the application will be fully considered.
