747. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice if the case of a person (details supplied) will be examined in relation to residency status which was previously in place; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [10523/21]
Minister for Justice (Deputy Helen McEntee): The permission to remain of the person referred to by the Deputy expired on 22 September 2019. This permission was granted on the basis of being the parent of an Irish Born Child.
As this permission has lapsed for over a year, the person concerned should write to Unit 4, Domestic Residence and Permissions Division, Immigration Service Delivery, 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2, D02 XK70 and provide a detailed account and documentary evidence of their personal circumstances since the expiration of their permission to reside in the State. Once received, the case will be dealt with as expeditiously as possible.
General information in relation to applying for IBC renewal is available on the Immigration Service website at: http://www.inis.gov.ie/en/inis/pages/wp07000030
The onus is on the applicant to ensure they hold a current and valid evidence of identity and nationality in the form of a current and valid passport, however if applying to Unit 4 on Form RES3, it is open to the applicant to include full evidence of their ongoing efforts to obtain same, including documentary evidence from the relevant issuing agency, so that these circumstances can be assessed at that stage.
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 (email@example.com) which has been specifically established for this purpose.
