536. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the correct procedure to be followed in the case of a person (details supplied); if they are required to take particular steps in respect of their residency status to meet full requirements; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25504/18]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that from the very limited information the Deputy has provided it is not possible to address the issues raised in his question.
In this regard the person concerned should be advised to write to Unit 2, Residence Division, Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service, 13-14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2 in order to allow for a full examination of their circumstances.
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.
