Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service that this person was granted an extension of her student permission to remain in the State until 31 May, 2013. It would appear that the person has no longer any basis for remaining in the State and should now make arrangements to leave. The applicable guidelines in this case are those for non EEA national students registered in the State before 1 January 2011. These are available on the INIS website at www.inis.gov.ie.

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 of too long awaited.
