Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person concerned is currently registered in the State under Stamp 3 conditions valid until 4 July 2015 which is renewable directly with their local immigration officer shortly before its expiry date. The person concerned should be advised to make an application to INIS for Stamp 4 conditions on the basis of family dependency of an Irish national arising from their father's naturalisation.

Queries on 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.
