  231.  Mr. Gormley  Information on John Gormley  Zoom on John Gormley   asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform  Information on John O'Donoghue  Zoom on John O'Donoghue   the reasons an application for a study visa and a subsequent application for an exam visa for a person (details supplied) were refused; the additional documentation or information needed for a successful application; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [13556/99]

  232.  Mr. Gormley  Information on John Gormley  Zoom on John Gormley   asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform  Information on John O'Donoghue  Zoom on John O'Donoghue   if a study visa will be granted for a person (details supplied). [13557/99]

Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. O'Donoghue): Information on John O'Donoghue  Zoom on John O'Donoghue  I propose to take Questions Nos. 231 and 232 together.

The person in question applied for a study visa for a period of 12 months. However, the documents submitted with his application showed him to be enrolled for a course of two weeks duration only. In addition, the applicant did not produce evidence of sufficient funds to support himself for a stay of one year. Should the applicant supply my Department with details of his enrolment in a further course as well as evidence of sufficient resources, the case can then be re-examined.

It is noted that the applicant has an offer of a supernumerary attachment in an Irish hospital. However, registration with the Irish Medical Council is a requirement for such a post and this has not yet been obtained by the applicant. It would be of benefit if the applicant could clarify his plans in this regard.
