Department of Justice and Equality
494. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if urgent consideration will be given to an application for naturalisation in the case of a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [44630/20]
The Citizenship Division of the Immigration Service of my Department contacted the person concerned on 31 August 2020, requesting further documentation.
Once these documents have been received the case will continue to be progressed with a view to establishing whether the person meets the statutory conditions for the granting of naturalisation. It will be submitted to me for decision when processing is complete.
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.
