732. Deputy Carol Nolan asked the Minister for Justice if she will address concerns regarding the processing of re-entry visas for children (details supplied) who are holders of an Indian passport; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [52272/21]


Minister of State at the Department of Justice and Equality (Deputy James Browne): I can confirm that an application for a re-entry visa from the person referred to by the Deputy has been processed and my Department has written to them directly to inform them.
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.
