Minister of State at the Department of Justice and Equality (Deputy James Browne): As the Deputy will be aware, registrations for people living outside of the Dublin area are processed by the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB) through the Garda Station network.
Queries in relation to GNIB appointments outside Dublin should be made to the individual Garda Station dealing with such appointments. An enquiry can also be made to GNIB at the following email address:
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 at, 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 Question process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in the cases where the response is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
