The person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order, made on 29 September 2017, following consideration of the person’s case under section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended). That Order was subsequently affirmed in November 2018.

The Immigration Service of my Department has no record of a current request from the person concerned to have that Order revoked. However, in the event that the person concerned can point to materially changed circumstances which have arisen since the decision to make a Deportation Order was taken, it would be open to them to make a request, under section 3(11) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended), to have that Order revoked. The Deputy can be assured that any such request made will be considered on its merits.

In the meantime, as a person subject to a Deportation Order, they are legally obliged to comply with any reporting obligations placed on them by the Garda National Immigration Bureau.

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 (inisoireachtasmail@justice.ie) 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.
