The person in question made a visa application in December 2003. The application was refused because it had not been established, on the basis of the documentation supplied to my Department, that the applicant would observe the conditions of the visa. In particular, it was felt that the applicant had not displayed sufficient evidence of her obligations to return home following her proposed visit.
An appeal against the refusal was received in January 2004. The visa appeals officer, having re-considered the application afresh, 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.
