Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am advised by the Immigration Service of my Department that from the information provided by the Deputy it has not been possible to identify any application made to them on behalf of the person concerned.

It is open to the person concerned to contact the Immigration Service, in writing, and to set out their particular circumstances, for consideration.  All relevant information and any supporting documentary evidence should be included in the request. The website ( contains the relevant contact addresses for correspondence depending on the particular circumstances of the individual. 

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.
