Deputy Bernard Allen Deputy Bernard Allen
Deputy Bernard Allen asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if a person (details supplied) is free to re-enter the State; and if not, the action they need to take in order to re-enter. [42611/08]
Deputy Dermot Ahern Deputy Dermot Ahern
Deputy Dermot Ahern: I am informed that the permission to remain in the State granted to the person concerned expired in November, 2007. As the person has resided outside the State since 2005 this permission has not been renewed. It should be noted that since the closure of the IBC/05 scheme in March 2005 there is no separate procedure for the consideration of applications for permission to remain in the State as the parent of an Irish citizen child. The position of the person concerned as regards  entry into the State is the same as that of any other national of a non-EEA Member State whose citizens are not visa-required to enter Ireland.
