I am advised by the Immigration Service of my Department that the person referred to has no active applications on-going with the Department at present.

The person concerned was granted permission as a family member of an EU citizen for a period of five years from 2012-2017. There is no application for renewal in this person's name at present. However, if this person continues to reside in the State they should contact the Immigration Service in writing without delay to outline their current circumstances.

Queries in relation to the status of individual Immigration cases may be made directly to the Immigration Service 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 Immigration Service is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
