I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that there is no record of an application from the persons concerned. It is, however, open to them to contact INIS, in writing, and set out their particular circumstances to the Family Dependent Unit, Domestic Residence and Permissions Division, 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2. Any such request will be given detailed consideration by INIS upon receipt of the relevant information and documentary evidence from the individuas concerned.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS of my Department by email 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.
