301. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice the current position in regard to the residency status in the case of a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [24083/22]


Minister for Justice (Deputy Helen McEntee): I can confirm that the person referred to by the Deputy was granted an immigration permission, which is renewable at their local immigration office. That permission has been extended until 31 May 2022, under the automatic extension of immigration permissions I announced on 17 December 2021. All permissions are extended on the same terms and conditions to the permission already held.
The person concerned should take steps to renew their permission at their local immigration office.
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.
