I must again inform the Deputy  that, based on the information provided and after a thorough search of our systems, there is no record to be found of an immigration application from the person referred to.  The Deputy might also note that it is the responsibility of all persons with an immigration permission in the State, or an application for an immigration permission, to ensure that the information provided is kept up to date. Therefore if the person referred to has changed address since the original application or last registration they should advise my Department or their local registration office of their new address.

Should the Deputy obtain updated or revised details from the person, including full name, address and relevant reference or application numbers, I would be happy to advise on the position of the particular case.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to 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.
