Holding answer received on 05 December 2014

Visa applications are checked against a number of different databases. Any information that is provided from these checks is taken into consideration when considering the visa application. It is long-standing policy not to discuss

specific information used to consider visa applications that is not already in the public domain, as to do so would not be in the interests of border and national security.
