Written answers (Question to Justice)

I can inform the Deputy that the Immigration Service of my Department has issued correspondence to the person concerned and also to their legal representative pursuant to section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended) but to date no response has been received from either party. The onus lies with the applicant to provide the Department with a current address for all communications.  The person concerned or her legal representative should contact the Immigration Service immediately to ensure that the address on file is correct and to provide whatever further information she may consider relevant.

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 the cases where the response from the Immigration Service is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
