Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am informed by the Immigration Service of my Department that a request for further permission to remain was received from the person concerned on 8 March 2018. Further documentation in support of this request was received on 2 and 8 July 2019. The Deputy will appreciate that all such requests are dealt with in chronological order.  I understand that the request is under active consideration and a decision will be made as soon as possible.

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 is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
