Detailed information on the circumstances in which a person, who is not a refugee, can seek to sponsor a non-EEA national family member to join and reside with them in the State is contained in the Policy Document on Non-EEA Family Reunification, which can be found on the Immigration Service website at: .
If the family members are visa required nationals they must seek the appropriate visa for their circumstances. Each visa application is considered on its individual merits having regard to all of the information and documentation available to the visa officer at the time.
The onus rests at all times with the applicant to satisfy the visa officer that the particular visa sought should be granted. Guidelines on how to apply for particular types of visas are also available on the Immigration Service website.
