188. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if stamp 4 will be awarded in the case of a person (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17365/18]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I refer the Deputy to my previous response to Parliamentary Question No. 120 of 22 February 2018 which, despite a variation in the last name, appears to relate to the same person.
In my previous response to the Deputy I advised that the person concerned should engage with the immigration service. It does appear that they did attend their local immigration office on 25 March 2018 where they were granted temporary permission on Stamp 3 conditions up to 11 June 2018.
In my previous response the person concerned was also advised that in order to allow a full examination of their circumstances they should write to Unit 2, Residence Division, Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service and supply the requested list of documentation and information. I am informed by INIS, that as of to date, Unit 2, Residence Division has no record of the person writing to them.
Can I reiterate that, in order to allow for a full examination of the person's circumstances, the person concerned be advised again to write directly to Unit 2, Residence Division, Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service, 13-14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2 supplying the following information and documentation in relation to themselves, their spouse, and any children that might be currently residing in the State.
1. Full copy (all pages) of current and previous passport/s
2. Copy of all GNIB card/s
3. Copy of marriage certificate (if applicable)
4. Brief outline of their history in the State to include when and where they entered the State as well as a brief outline of their current and family circumstances.
5. Their current address.
6. Copy of birth cert for any dependent children.
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.
