Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am informed by officials in the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person referred to by the Deputy was issued with temporary permission to reside on 27 March 2014, valid until 10 August 2014, pending final determination of her application for a permanent residence card. The Garda National Immigration Bureau have however advised that the person concerned has not as of yet registered this temporary permission.

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 was 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.
