Answer

Minister for Justice (Deputy Helen McEntee): I propose to take Questions Nos. 284 and 285 together.
I understand that the Embassy in Jakarta, where the Visa sticker issues from, have been experiencing some ICT problems. They will endeavour to issue the Visa stickers for the persons referred to by the Deputy as soon as possible.
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.
