  • All News Items- Immigration in Ireland – 2012 in Review
    Immigration Service being at the vanguard of public sector reform As a further example of the commitment to innovation and achieving results Minister Shatter pointed to the success of his Department in winning the Taoiseach s Public Service Excellence Award in 2012 for the introduction of citizenship ceremonies and successfully tackling the citizenship application backlog Key Figures for 2012 Overall in 2012 approximately 165 700 new applications i e visa residence protection and citizenship were received by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service INIS decisions were issued in almost 175 000 cases a proportion of decisions issued relate to applications submitted in previous years and over 96 700 new or renewed registrations of permission to remain in the State were issued by the Garda National Immigration Bureau Registrations All Non EEA nationals remaining in the State for longer than 90 days are required to register with the Garda National Immigration Bureau The provisional 2012 year end estimate of non EEA nationals with permission to remain in the State is approximately 115 000 This compares with 128 200 at the end of 2011 and 133 200 in 2010 The drop in permissions to remain in the state in 2012 is primarily as a direct result of INIS s continuing efforts to reduce the backlog of citizenship cases In effect the success of the citizenship project has impacted very significantly on the number of people who are required to have permission to remain in the State The majority of persons with permission to remain in the State are here for work or study purposes The current top 6 registered nationalities which account for over 50 of all persons registered are India 11 Brazil 10 Nigeria 9 China 8 USA 8 and Philippines 7 The most recent census shows that overall Ireland s non Irish national population accounts for 12 of the national population or some 544 000 people The breakdown of non Irish nationals in the State according to Census 2011 shows that the majority are from EU countries Visas Provisional figures indicate that approximately 88 000 entry visa applications were received in 2012 an increase of 6 on 2011 The approval rate for entry visa applications was 91 The top 5 nationalities applying for visas in 2012 were India 16 Russia 14 China 11 Nigeria 8 and Turkey 5 Naturalisation citizenship The major reforms introduced by the Minister to the processing of citizenship applications aimed at tackling the backlog of applications have resulted in a significant increase in the number of cases decided Over 25 000 applications were decided in 2012 compared to 16 000 in 2011 and fewer than 8 000 in 2010 Minister Shatter introduced citizenship ceremonies for the first time in the State in 2011 38 such events were held in 2012 These ceremonies which underscore the importance of the granting of citizenship and ensure that it is marked by a sense of occasion for our new citizens have been universally welcomed Students The number of non EEA national students registered to study in the State is approximately 31 400 or 25 of the total number of non EEA nationals with permission to remain in the State Broken down by education sector 38 of students are pursuing Higher Education Degree Programme study 26 are engaged in further education non Degree courses 28 are taking language courses and 9 other e g secondary school International Protection and Asylum The provisional figures for 2012 indicate that 950 applications for asylum were submitted The equivalent figure for 2011 was 1 290 The comparative figure in 2002 when the volume of asylum applications was at a peak was 11 600 Provisional figures for end 2012 indicate that there were approximately 4 750 persons seeking international protection accommodated in direct provision centres in the State some 650 fewer than at the end of 2011 Deportations Removals Almost 2 700 persons were deported removed from the State in 2012 This number comprises of some 2 260 persons who were refused entry into the State at ports of entry and were returned to the place from where they had come In addition 298 failed asylum seekers and illegal migrants were deported from the State in 2012 The top 5 nationalities deported were from Nigeria Pakistan Georgia Tanzania these persons had claimed asylum as Somali but were shown to be Tanzanian through cooperation with UK and South Africa A total of 111 persons were deported on charter flights and 187 on scheduled commercial aircraft In 2012 Ireland participated in 9 chartered deportation flights 7 of which were organised in conjunction with EU agency FRONTEX which coordinates removals throughout the EU and 2 were joint operations with the UK A further 68 asylum seekers were transferred to the EU member state in which they first applied for asylum under the Dublin Regulation In addition a further 55 EU nationals were returned to their countries of origin on foot of an EU Removal Order Voluntary Returns Rather than be issued with a deportation order a total of 467 persons chose to return home voluntarily in 2012 Of that number 383 were assisted to return by the International Organisation for Migration IOM The top 5 nationalities of returnees were Brazil Moldova China Mauritius and Georgia This is a hugely cost effective programme and every effort is made to increase its usage among migrants who wish to return home Immigration data sharing with the UK The exchange of immigration data between Ireland and the UK prevents immigration abuses and preserves the integrity of the CTA arrangement for the majority of genuine individuals who benefit greatly from it Since June 2012 the fingerprints of almost 3 000 Irish visa applicants have been cross checked against the UK s immigration fingerprint database As a result of this sharing of biometric data since the exchange commenced numerous incidences of identity swapping have been revealed as well as identifying visa applicants who have adverse immigration histories in the UK In a separate data sharing
