Further to PQs 2660/24 and 2721/24 regarding this case, I would like to assure the Deputy that officials from the Marriages Abroad Unit of the Consular Directorate in my Department are in regular and direct contact with the applicant concerned.

We are awaiting additional material in support of the application. Once officials receive the required material, the department will process the application in a timely manner. As my officials have advised the applicant, such applications are processed within an eight-week timeframe.

My Department's Marriages Abroad Unit can be contacted for guidance or assistance at marriagesabroad@dfa.ie and full information on the process is available on the Department's website under the 'Consular Services' section of www.ireland.ie.
