Orhan* is a refugee from Syria. He fled Syria when he was 17, but by the time he arrived to Ireland (via Greece) he was over 18 and had no right to apply for family reunification under the International Protection Act, 2015.
Nasc assisted Orhan with putting together an IHAP application for his parents, his two minor brothers (13 and 16), and his sister (23), all of whom are currently in Syria, near the Turkish border. He gathered all the documents and secured accommodation for his family, and thankfully Orhan's application was successful.
Orhan is continuing with his education in Cork and looking forward to having his family here with him.
Congratulations to Orhan and everyone who has had good news on their IHAP applications!
