Minister of State at the Department of Justice (Deputy James Browne): The application for a certificate of naturalisation in respect of the person referred to by the Deputy has recently been approved.
This has been communicated to the applicant and upon receipt of the prescribed fee and requested documentation the case will be further processed. Subject to all documents being in order, a certificate of naturalisation will then issue.
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.
