Department of Justice and Equality
Deportation Orders Re-examination
93. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if an application to revoke a deportation order under section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999, as amended, in the case of a person (details supplied) will be accepted; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [45934/19]
I propose to take Questions Nos. 93 and 105 together.
No deportation order has been issued by my Department to the person concerned. The person mentioned by the Deputy was issued with a notification pursuant to the provisions of Section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended) on 21st October 2019, in response to this notification, the person concerned has not submitted written representations.
The position in the State of the person concerned will now be decided by reference to the provisions of Section 3 (6) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended) and all other applicable legislation. If any representations are submitted, they will be considered before a final decision is made.
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.
