Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice and Equality)

I am advised by officials in the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) that the person referred to by the Deputy was granted permission to reside in the State on Stamp 4 conditions under the Long Term Residency scheme. This permission is valid until 08/06/2015 and therefore does not need to be reviewed at this time. When this current permission expires the person concerned should contact their local Immigration Officer to have it renewed.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to INIS by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This service enables up to date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek information by way of the Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from INIS is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
