Written answers (Question to Justice)

The applicants referred to by the Deputy submitted an application for a residence card to the Immigration Service of my Department on 20 October 2020. Processing of these applications is ongoing. As each application is examined on its own merits, the Immigration Service is unable to give an exact timeframe for their completion. However, I am advised that a decision will issue in the coming weeks.

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 (INISOireachtasMail@justice.ie), 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.
