Department of Justice and Equality
Leave to Remain
408. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the reason for the delay in renewing an application to remain here in the case of a person (details supplied); and if she will expedite the matter. [30144/20]
On 18 September 2020, I announced that a further temporary extension of immigration and international protection permissions has been granted to 20 January 2021. This applies to permissions that are due to expire between 20 September 2020 and 20 January 2021. The person concerned should send their renewal application directly to email@example.com six weeks in advance of the new expiry date of 20 January 2021.
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 is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
