Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am advised by the Immigration Service of my Department that the visa application referred to was refused by the Visa Office in Dublin  on 14 March 2019 and the reasons were outlined to the person concerned. A visa appeal application was received on 18 April 2019 in the Dublin Visa Office. This appeal will be given full consideration and a decision will issue 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.
