In the United Kingdom and other countries, policy instructions for the exercise of "discretion" are publicly available. Discretion cannot be exercised at the whim of the minister or a public servant.scrudu wrote:It sounds like you submitted all the documentation they request so I don't really understand why you were refused. But any visa granted is "at the discretion of the Minister for Justice" so the process isn't at all transparent.

And it seems arbritrary that we both submitted similar information, but one application was refused and the other one was accepted. There are no guidelines stating how long a couple must know or have met each other to pass this RH criteria. Because of this it seems that applications are accepted/refused at the discretion/whim of a Visa Officer
Hi there,scrudu wrote:There is only 1 form for a visa application, but I presume you already filled this out with your original application? You can download it at http://www.dfa.ie/services/visa/visaapp.pdf
You should write on the top of this form that you are applying for a D-Spouse visa.
Your husband should ask his friend which forms he means. He should also call the Dept of Justice and the Immigrant Council of Ireland for advice on any other documents they would recommend him to send on before he submits his application.

Was your husband invited for any interview by the Department of Justice before rejecting you visa ?
