Written answers (Question to Jobs)

The regularisation of status of the person named in terms of prescribed immigration requirements falls within the remit of the Irish National Immigration Service under the auspices of the Department of Justice and Equality. Under the provisions of the Employment Permits Acts 2003 and 2006 the person named is obliged to hold a valid employment permit before taking up employment in this country. There is no record of a work permit application in respect of this person in my Department.
