105. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the current or potential residency status in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Kildare; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [7555/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person concerned is currently registered in the State under Stamp 4 conditions granted to them on the basis of their marriage to an Irish national. This permission is valid until 11 August 2015 and is renewable by attending at their local immigration office accompanied by their Irish spouse.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility 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 from the INIS is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited .
