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

The application referred to by the Deputy was refused by the Visa Officer in Cairo on 8 January 2008. The reasons for refusal were as follows: 1. The applicant did not provide sufficient information regarding the relationship history, prior to the marriage and 2. Inconsistencies in some of the applicant's statements. A letter, dated 8 January, 2008, informed the applicant of the decision and explained the reasons.

The decision of the Visa Officer may be appealed within two months of the date of decision, in this case before 8 March 2008. Guidelines on making an appeal can be found on the website of the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service at
