The Employment Permits Section of my Department inform me that an application for a General Employment Permit in respect of the named individual was received on 15 January 2019. On 26 February 2019, this application was refused because the named individual was in the State without current immigration permission.
In addition to being informed of the decision to refuse this application, the applicant was also informed that they could request a review of this decision. My officials inform me that, to date, no such request has been received.
A refusal to grant an employment permit does not preclude an applicant from submitting another application for a new employment permit. Such an application should comply with all of the legislative requirements for the particular employment permit type.
