Therefore, officers can feel assured that the Ministerial Instructions (MIs) accurately describe the applicant if:
- They find evidence that gives them reasonable ground to believe that either of the criteria listed above applies to the applicant
- Such direct evidence of the relevant facts that officers could use includes (but is not limited to):
- Passport stamps from Ebola Affected Countries (EAC)
- Plane tickets or travel itineraries to or from Ebola Affected Countries (EAC) or,
- Client statements of actual travel (or of the intent to travel) to Ebola Affected Countries (EAC)
In addition, officers would need to make their decisions based on the information provided by the applicant. Officers should not typically:
- Seek additional information or,
- Contact the applicant for confirming that the Ministerial Instructions (MIs) describe the applicant
Officers would need to continue processing the application if they find that:
- The application does not indicate that the applicant meets the Ministerial Instructions (MIs) criteria listed above
In this scenario, the officers would process the application according to the usual procedures.
In some situations, officers could find that they have sufficient evidence for believing that the Ministerial Instructions (MIs) describe the applicant perfectly. In this scenario, the officers would need to follow up with the client by sending them letter C. In addition, there might be some situations where the officers would need to consider the prospects of seeking additional information. To understand the situations when the authorities recommend a follow-up, officers would need to read the relevant section on TRV applicants.
