Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service, INIS, that the person mentioned by the Deputy became a naturalised Irish citizen on 13 December 2012.

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.
