Rejection of Schengen Visa Applications

Rejection of Schengen Visa Applications

Rejection of Schengen Visa Applications

There are several reasons why Schengen Visa Applications get rejected, leading to the rejection of tourist visas issued for major European countries such as Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria, etc.

If your Schengen Visa Application has been rejected but you have been given time by the Embassy to provide the required documents, note that a bend in the road is not the end of the road and you should not get disappointed quickly! You can present your documents again and solve the problem of rejection of your Schengen visa application.

Reasons for the Rejection of Schengen Visa Applications

Each application sent to the embassies of Schengen countries, such as the German Embassy, Spanish Embassy, Austrian Embassy etc. will be carefully examined by the visa officers or agents because the applicants must be informed of the reasons for the rejection of their Schengen visa applications via a written letter.

The options checked in the letter show that you lack the requirements of a Schengen visa and the Embassy officer has not been convinced of your intentions.

The most important reasons why a Schengen visa can be rejected include the group or individual travel, incomplete occupational documents, the irrelevance of job documentation and the amount of income mentioned in the application, the lack of sufficient financial ability required for the number of family members, lack of strong reasons for returning home after the trip, not having a specific purpose of the travel and so on.

If the applicant's place of residence in the destination country has been defined just nominally, the Embassy will contact the hotel to check the reservation, and the applicant's visa application will be rejected after the inquiry indicates a mismatch between the booked ticket and the residence hotel.

The main reasons for the rejection of Schengen Visa Applications

Your visa application may be rejected by an embassy of one of the Schengen countries. In general, the 10 common reasons declared by the embassies of the Schengen countries as the main reasons for the Schengen visa rejection are as follows:

1.       Presenting fake and false documents to the embassy,

2.       Not specifying the reason and purpose of the trip,

3.       Not having sufficient financial resources to pay for your travel expenses to the Schengen area,

4.       Staying in the Schengen area after your visa has expired,

5.       Not mentioning the previous rejection of your application for Schengen visa in your new application if your application has already been rejected,

6.       Your being identified as a threat to public health, social order and national security,

7.       Not having valid travel insurance,

8.       Not ascertaining the purpose and destination of your travel,

9.       The embassy's not being convinced of your return to your home country, and

10.    Not having the requirements to obtain Schengen visas.

Appealing a Schengen Visa Application Rejection

No matter why your Schengen visa application has been rejected, you can do one of the two following things in order to obtain that visa:

1.       Appealing your Schengen visa application rejection.

2.       Submitting your application to one of the embassies of the Schengen area with more complete documentation.

You should keep in mind that you can send an appeal letter to the officials if you are not convinced about why your Schengen visa application has been rejected. Note that the process of appealing the Schengen visa application rejection will usually take up to 3 months. However, you must be careful not to reapply for a Schengen visa as long as your current Schengen visa application is being reviewed, because this will stop the process of the embassy officer's examining your appeal and lead to the rejection of your application again.

Another point is that you may encounter a lot of people who advise you to ignore the first option. As an agency with sufficient experience and activity about obtaining Schengen visas, we ensure you that your appeal will certainly be re-examined and your application will be accepted if you offer convincing reasons for your appealing your visa application rejection, as many of our passengers have received positive responses and fortunately have succeeded in obtaining Schengen visas.

How to appeal Schengen visa rejection

When you apply for a Schengen visa, your application will be either accepted or rejected. If your application is rejected, you will receive a rejection notification letter containing the reasons for your visa application rejection.

You may want to meet the requirements for the rejection by submitting subsequent documents and further explanations, in which case you can appeal your visa application rejection either personally or through a person having received a power of attorney from you.

Conditions for the acceptance of your Schengen visa rejection appeal

Considering that the reasons for the rejection of your Schengen visa application should be examined carefully so that you can meet the requirements of your visa application acceptance, we advise you to use attorneys experienced enough in this area by writing an appropriate appeal letter to the relevant embassy, thereby convincing the embassy officials of your explanations and overcoming the deficiencies leading to the rejection of your visa application.

After submitting a visa application, you can apply for visas from other Schengen member states such as Spain, Italy, Germany, and so on.

Note that you will only have 30 days to examine the reasons for your Schengen visa rejection and meet the requirements, after which the embassies will usually not accept any appeals from you. Therefore, as soon as your visa is rejected, try to get an experienced attorney, so that the reasons for your visa rejection will be examined carefully and you will be able to meet the unmet requirements as soon as possible.

Stages of removing the deficiencies in your Schengen visa application

It is important to note that having a passport stamped twice with the word "DENIED" is considered a negative point, in which case you will have to go through difficult steps to get a visa from different countries and, even occasionally, you may fail to receive a visa in spite of your best efforts.

Appeal letters for Schengen visa application rejection should:

1) be written within one month after the application rejection,

2) contain the applicant's full name, date of birth and six-digit bar code (e.g. 212121)

3) be written in English

4) be signed by the applicant

5) address the embassy.

As stated above, the letter should explain the reasons for your Schengen visa application rejection precisely and describe the details.

Note: You can email or post the required documents or deliver them directly to the relevant embassy. In general, you do not need to attend the embassy once again.

Filing an appeal against Schengen visa refusals through an attorney

You can get an attorney to do your appeal affairs by receiving a power of attorney from you, in which case the power of attorney must be presented at the beginning of the appeal process. Please note that the power of attorney, like the appeal letter, must be signed by you as an applicant.

After the protest process is completed, you will be invited to the embassy to be interviewed again for the issuance of the Schengen visa; otherwise, you will receive a letter (notification) containing the detailed reasons for the rejection of your visa application.

You can file an appeal against the notification within one month after its announcement.

Note that embassies in Tehran try to make it possible for many applicants to apply for visas and they use all of their capacity in this regard. Therefore, it may take several weeks for the embassy officials to review your appeal, so you should stop following it up.

If the embassy needs more evidence to examine your appeal, you will be contacted, but if you do not intend to wait until your appeal is examined, we recommend submitting a new visa application with full documentation.
