The person in question made a visa application in September 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.

An appeal against the refusal was received but the visa appeals officer, having re-considered the application afresh, upheld the original decision. It is open to the applicant to make a fresh application with up-to-date supporting documentation and the matter will be considered anew.
