Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform
Question 162: To ask the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the reason a visitor's visa has again been refused to a person (details supplied); if same will be reviewed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16893/09]
The visa application referred to by the Deputy was received in the Visa Office, Cairo on the 13 April 2009. Following consideration by a Visa Officer it was refused on the 13 April 2009 for the following reasons: the evidence of finances was deemed insufficient/incomplete, specifically there was no six month bank statement or payslips submitted; the obligations of the applicant to return to the home country following the proposed visit were not deemed sufficient.
The decision of the Visa Officer may be appealed within two months of the date of decision, in this case before the 13 June 2009. Any appeal must be submitted to the Visa Office, Cairo for consideration. Guidelines on making an appeal can be found on the website of the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service — (www.inis.gov.ie).
