I understand that a request to withdraw the visa application referred to by the Deputy was received by the Immigration Service of my Department on 4 February 2021. A response was issued on 9 February 2021, which advised the correct procedure for withdrawing an application and that the applicant would be welcome to submit a future application at their discretion.

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 (INISOireachtasMail@justice.ie), 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 is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
