Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am informed by the Immigration Service of my Department that the person concerned has an on-going application for temporary and limited permission to remain, which was received on 12 August 2019. The Deputy will appreciate that, in the interests of fairness, applications are dealt with in chronological order. I understand that the application is currently under consideration and the person concerned will be contacted in due course.

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.
