547. Deputy David Cullinane asked the Minister for Justice if she will advise on a matter raised in correspondence (details supplied); if permission will be granted; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [37362/21]


Minister for Justice (Deputy Heather Humphreys): I can inform the Deputy that the Immigration Service of my Department will accept the information submitted as an application and will be in contact with the person concerned in the coming days.
I can also inform the Deputy that the person concerned qualifies for the automatic extension of immigration permissions to 20 September 2021, provided that they abide by the conditions of their student permission, which is to continue studying in the State.
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.
