Dáil Éireann Debate
144. Deputy Michael Creed asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the position regarding a request for a visa in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Cork; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26742/11]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): When completing an on-line visa application the applicant is assigned a unique visa transaction number. This detail must be provided where a query on the status of a visa application arises. If the Deputy can provide the relevant detail I will ensure that officials in the Visa Office will make further enquiries and respond to the Deputy directly.
I should remind the Deputy that queries in relation to the status of individual Immigration cases may also be made direct to INIS by Email using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. The service enables up-to-date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek this information through the more administratively expensive Parliamentary Questions process.
