Department of Justice, Equality and Defence
Alan Shatter (Minister, Department of Justice, Equality and Defence; Dublin South, Fine Gael)
Correspondence was received in the Department from the person concerned on 21 December 2011, in relation to his position in the State and, more specifically, as to how the recent ECJ Judgment in the Zambrano case might apply to him. As the person in question has current permission to remain in the state on a stamp 2, a letter was issued to him on the 21 December 2011, advising him to attend at his local Garda Registration Office to have his case considered. To date the person in question has not attended his local immigration office.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to INIS 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 INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
