Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

The visa application in question was refused because the applicant provided insufficient information and supporting documentation with the application. In particular, he failed to disclose the details of the purpose or duration of his intended visit or show any evidence of how he intended to maintain himself during his proposed visit. It is open to the applicant to appeal against the refusal of the visa application by writing to the visa appeals officer in my Department, together with additional supporting documentation.
