Written answers (Question to Justice)

A change of status application from the person referred to by the Deputy, was received by the Immigration Service of my Department on 8 March 2021. Correspondence issued to the applicant on 9 March 2021 requesting additional information. To date, no response has been received. On receipt of a response to the correspondence, the Immigration Service will organise the return of all original documentation.

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.
