Written answers (Question to Justice)

An application for a certificate of naturalisation was received from the person referred to by the Deputy on 13 August 2020. The application is currently being examined with a view to establishing whether they meet the statutory conditions for the granting of naturalisation. I understand that the Citizenship Division of the Immigration Service of my Department will be contacting the person concerned shortly regarding their application.

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 at 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 Question process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in the cases where the response is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
