Minister of State at the Department of Justice (Deputy James Browne): Applications for a Permanent Residence Card by the persons referred to by the Deputy were made on 19 November 2018. Following examination, a decision to refuse the applications was made on 13 February 2020.
The applicants were advised that they could request a review of the decision if they felt that the deciding officer had erred in fact or in law and that any request for a review of the decision must be made on Form EU4 within 15 working days. No requests for review were received by my Department.
A review of a decision made under the provisions of the European Communities (Free Movement of Persons) Regulations 2015 is ongoing in respect of one of the applicants referred to by the Deputy. This applicant also currently has Stamp 4 permission, which is valid until 11 March 2022.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
