Written answers (Question to Justice)

The processing of the passport of the person referred to by the Deputy has been completed and was returned by registered post on 23 November 2020, by the Immigration Service of my Department.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to 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.
