Parents Residency EOI selection resumption

A KS made this Official Information request to Iain Lees-Galloway

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for A KS to read a recent response and update the status.

From: A KS

Respected Hon.Iain Lees-Galloway,

This is regarding the Parents Resident Visa EOI selection which was due to resume in May 2020.
Could you please advice what are the plans to start the EOI selection for the same.
At the moment it is suspended but still new EOI applications are being accepted which will add to the existing backlog if the previous queue is not processed. This visa has been in limbo partially due to the last Government and then delays in the re-opening and it is affecting a lot of families who have been anxiously waiting for last 4-5 years.

Kindly update on the status.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

A KS
