I am informed by the Immigration Service of my Department that the person to whom the Deputy refers was informed by letter on 29 September that her position did not warrant an extension of her visitor permission as there was no change to her circumstances since her arrival in the State.
There is no appeal permitted in such cases. However, if the person concerned has new information to disclose on her circumstances since the refusal of her application, she may submit a new request for an extension of her residence permission to the address provided to her in the decision letter.
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.
