Dáil Éireann Debate
231. Mr. Gormley asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform 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]
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.
