I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that, as previously stated in my response to Parliamentary Question No. 422 of 7 of September, 2018,  it would appear this person's presence in the State may be unlawful as their most recent permission to remain in the State expired in December, 2011.

In order to allow for a full examination of the person's circumstances, the person concerned should write to Unit 2, Domestic Residence and Permissions Division, INIS, 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2 and provide a detailed account and documentary evidence  of their personal circumstances since the expiration of their permission to reside in this State. 

This account may also include the circumstances of family members of the person concerned.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS of 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 from the INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
