175. Deputy Michael Healy-Rae asked the Minister for Justice and Equality to set out the position regarding a de facto visa for persons (details supplied) in County Kerry; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [35519/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that written notification issued to the person concerned on 08 October 2015 advising them of the outcome of their appeal.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to INIS by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been 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 Parliamentary Question process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from INIS is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
