Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am advised by the Immigration Service of my Department that it has received a request for permission to remain in the State from the person referred to by the Deputy. I am further advised that the Immigration Service issued a request to the person concerned for further documentation on 10 July 2019, and are yet to receive a response.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the Immigration Service of my Department 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 Immigration Service is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
