The person concerned was granted Leave to Remain in the State for the period to 18 April, 2012. This decision was conveyed in writing to the person concerned, at his then last notified address, by registered letter dated 18 April, 2011. This letter was returned to the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) by An Post, marked, "not called for".
On 21 February, 2012, a formal "take back" request was received from the United Kingdom (UK) in respect of the person concerned in accordance with the provisions of Article 16(1)(e) of Council Regulation (EC) 343 of 2003. This request was accepted by Ireland and the person concerned was formally transferred from the UK to Ireland on 19 September, 2012.
The person concerned made an application for the renewal of his temporary permission to remain and this application is under consideration at present. Once a decision has been made on this application, this decision, and the consequences of the decision, will be conveyed in writing to the person concerned.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the 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 the INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
