 224. Mr. J. O’Keeffe asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the reason he has failed to deal with the issue of a visitor visa for a person (details supplied). [33880/04]
Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell: The visa application in question was for the stated purpose of a two month visit in the State. The visa was refused as the documentation provided did not show that the applicant had any means to support herself during her proposed two month visit. No evidence of her employment or finances was included in the application. The documentation provided related solely to her husband but did not substantiate his level of earnings.
Following an appeal, the application was re-examined by a visa appeals officer who upheld the original decision. It is of course open to the applicant to make a fresh application with up to date supporting documentation and the matter will be considered anew. It would also be helpful if the applicant provided evidence of her obligations to return home following her proposed visit.
