743. Deputy Michael Creed asked the Minister for Justice the status of a visa application (details supplied). [52501/21]


Minister of State at the Department of Justice (Deputy James Browne): My Department has no record of a visa application having been made for the individuals concerned. If the Deputy can supply further information, including the relevant visa application numbers, I will ensure that the matter is re-examined.
It is open to any person to create a visa application at any time. Upon creating an on-line visa application, the summary sheet must be printed and signed by the applicant and then submitted to the relevant Visa Office, along with supporting documentation and the relevant fee, within 30 days. Upon receipt of the necessary documentation and fee, the visa application will be processed.
When submitting an application, if it is the intention of the applicant to enter the State with a view to residing here, they should apply for a D Type - Join Family visa application. If the applicant intends only to visit, then they should apply for a C Type - Visit Visa.
