I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person concerned has been granted leave to remain in the State for the period of one year effective from the 19 February 2018 until the 19 February 2019. 

The person concerned is required to apply in writing for the renewal of this permission four weeks in advance of the permission expiring. As my Department's records show no evidence of such a renewal request having been made to date, it is recommended that the person concerned should do so without further delay.

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.
