I am informed by the Immigration Service of my Department that the onus rests with the person concerned to keep their permission in the State up to date. The person mentioned by the Deputy must make an appointment with the local immigration officer in their district in order to update their permission.  

Comprehensive information on the process is available on the website of the Immigration Service of my Department - www.inis.ie

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