Written answers (Question to Justice)

There is no record of an application for a certificate of naturalisation having been received from the person concerned by the Immigration Service of my Department. The person concerned does, however, have permission to remain in the State, on immigration stamp 4 conditions, up to 25 October 2021.

It is open to any person to make an application for a certificate of naturalisation when they are satisfied that they meet the qualifying criteria which can be found on my Department’s website.

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.
