I am informed by the Immigration Service of my Department that the person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order signed on 31 January 2019. This Order requires the person concerned to remove themselves from the State and remain outside the State. The enforcement of the Deportation Orders are a matter for the Garda National Immigration Bureau.

The person concerned was required to present themselves at the Offices of the Garda National Immigration Bureau on 3 April 2019, to make arrangements for their deportation from the State. The person concerned failed to present on that occasion and is therefore recorded as a person who is evading deportation.

Representations have since been received on behalf of the person concerned requesting that the Deportation Order be revoked, pursuant to the provisions of Section 3(11) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended). This request will be considered as soon as possible. A decision will then be made to either "affirm" or "revoke" the existing Deportation Order. This decision will be communicated in writing. In the meantime, the Deportation Order remains valid and in place.

 Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the Immigration Service 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 Immigration Service is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
