The person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order, signed on 29 September 2017,  requiring them to remove themselves from the State and remain outside the State.  The enforcement of the Deportation Order is a matter for the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB). 

As previously advised, representations were received from the person concerned, pursuant to the provisions of Section 3(11) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended), requesting that the Deportation Order be revoked and including information regarding their marriage.  Following detailed consideration of the information submitted in support of the request, the Deportation Order was affirmed and notified to the person concerned by letter dated 27 November 2018.  There is no outstanding correspondence or applications on file for this applicant.

Please note that the Registration Office Burgh Quay and all Registration Offices for non-Dublin residents operated by An Garda Síochána have temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Consequently, the requirement of an individual to present to GNIB at a registration office is temporarily suspended.

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.
