119. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if a previously refused application for family reunification by a person (details supplied) in Dublin 22 will be reconsidered and if further medical evidence will be accepted in the context of a review. [44581/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I have been informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service of my Department that the provisions governing family reunification for recognised refugees contained in the Refugee Act 1996 (as amended) do not provide for a review of applications. However, it is open to the person referred to by the Deputy to submit a new application to the Family Reunification Section in respect of the family member referred to above. Any new application should be accompanied by all appropriate documentation in support of the application including in particular up to date original medical reports (clearly detailing diagnosis and prognosis) and original identity documentation in respect of the subject of the application.
