707. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice the procedure to be followed to regularise residency status in the case of a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [51145/21]


Minister of State at the Department of Justice and Equality (Deputy James Browne): The records available to my Department indicate that the person referred to by the Deputy has no legal status in the State since 8 January 2020. 
The person concerned is advised to write to the Immigration Service of my Department and request to regularise their position in the State. When submitting their request, they should outline their current circumstances, the date of their arrival in the State, their current or most recent permission, if any, to be in the State, along with their future intentions in the State.  
They should enclose a copy of all pages of their passport, along with any documentation that they believe will support their case. The application should be submitted, via registered post, to Residence Division - Unit 2, Immigration Service, 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2, D02 XK70. 
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 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.
