I have been informed that my Department has no record of a request for permission to reside from the person concerned. It is open to the person mentioned by the Deputy to write to Unit 5, Domestic Residence and Permissions Division, Immigration Service, PO Box 12695, Dublin 2, setting out her current circumstances. Alternatively the person concerned may email INISdefacto@justice.ie for further information on how to proceed.

The Deputy may wish to note that queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to 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 is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.

I have been informed by my officials that the person referred to by the Deputy has had all aspects of their international protection and related claims refused, they are given a short window of opportunity within which to exercise the option of voluntary return. Where this option is not exercised, and on the assumption that the relevant party has no separate basis to remain in the State, section 51 of the International Protection Act 2015 states that, subject to the provisions of section 50 of that Act, the Minister shall make a Deportation Order.

Where a Deportation Order has been made, any material change in the relevant person’s circumstances can be brought to the Minister’s attention through the means of a request, made under section 3(11) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended), to have that Order revoked. Any such request made will, of course, be considered on its merits but that process must not be confused with the process provided for under section 49 (9) of the Act of 2015.
