My Department does not accept further documentation in support of IHAP proposals once a decision has issued. This is in order to provide certainty to the process, and to be fair to all proposers. The required documentation was fully set out in the IHAP proposal form.

 In the event that further calls for proposals are made under the IHAP, or any other future admissions schemes, the proposer in this case may have the opportunity to apply.

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 my department is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
