Department of Justice and Equality
196. To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality if a new application for change of status from stamp 3 to stamp 4 has been received in the relevant section of her Department in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Kildare; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [25202/14]
I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) that the person mentioned by the Deputy has not made an application for a change of immigration status. If she wishes to change her status she should make an application in writing to the Residence Division, Unit 2 of INIS, 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This services 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.
