330. Deputy Martin Ferris asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if she has made a decision on an application for family reunification (details supplied). [9136/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) that the application for Family Reunification in this case was approved and a decision letter issued to the person referred to by the Deputy (details supplied) on the 11th February 2015.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS of my Department by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility 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 from the INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
