Mr. Ring Mr. Ring
Mr. Ring asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform when a decision will be made on the residency application for the spouse of a person (details supplied) in County Mayo. [9956/07]
Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell: An application for residency in the State on the basis of marriage to an Irish national was received from the person in question in February 2007. An acknowledgement of receipt of the application was issued on 1 March 2007.
Applications of this kind, in fairness to all other such applications, are dealt with in strict chronological order and currently take approximately twelve months to process. It should be noted that marriage to an Irish national does not confer an automatic right of residence in the State.
