Written answers (Question to Justice)

The issue of a residence permit by the Garda National Immigration Bureau does not arise at present in the case of the person whose details were supplied.

If the person has made an application for asylum or subsidiary protection, the Deputy may be aware that it is not the practice to comment on such cases for so long as they are in the protection process. The Deputy should be aware, however, that all protection applicants are issued with a temporary residence certificate or letter by the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner (ORAC) pending a final decision on their application.
