Department of Justice and Equality
201. To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality when updated stamp 4 will issue in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Kildare who is currently self-employed; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [25207/14]
I am informed by the Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person concerned was registered in the State under Stamp 4 conditions granted to him on the basis of his marriage to an Irish national. This permission was valid until 9 June 2014 and is renewable directly with their local immigration officer.
If there has been any change of circumstances which would affect the renewal of his permission, the person concerned should make a written application to the Spouse of Irish National Unit, Residence Division, INIS, 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2 outlining the circumstances preventing him from renewing his registration.
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.
