Europe is one of the premier destinations for Indians and can always be found in their bucket list. Indians wish to travel to Europe for various purposes like leisure, work, business, education, to visit a relative or reside in the country. It is interesting to note that more than 7,00,000 applications for Schengen visas were made by Indians in 2015 according to the International Migration and Affairs of the European Commission.

The authorities refuse to hand out a visa for a variety of reasons but the most common factors are that correct documents are not submitted, the applicant has past or current criminal records, the purpose of travel is not credible, the passport is damaged or invalid, the candidate is not able to prove the proper plan of travel, the letter of reference is invalid, insufficient funds to cover the expenses for the duration of stay, invalid travel insurance, the marriage certificate is unacceptable or forged, lacking a proof of accommodation, non-disclosure of previous immigration issues, a bad history with the Schengen Visa application.

The reasons will be outlined in the official refusal letter and the fee paid for the visa application is non-refundable.

What is the Schengen Agreement?

The Schengen Agreement first came into effect on 14 July 1985 which led to the creation of Europe’s Schengen Area in which international border checks have largely been abolished.

According to this agreement, the Schengen area acts as a single jurisdiction for international travel purposes with a common visa policy.

The helpless, insulting, and disheartening situation of visa refusal which destroys your plans for a business trip or a vacation can be resolved with the following remedies:

The candidate can either appeal or re-apply.

The applicant can make an appeal against the refusal of the visa under Article 32(3) of the Visa Code. The appeal has to be made against the Member State that made the final decision of refusal and he/she should be sure that the decision was incorrect and there was no reason for rejection. The applicant then has to write an Appeal Letter/Remonstration Letter to be submitted to the Embassy, the decision of which can at times take up to 12 months and so it is not advised in case your visit is urgent or time-bound. The applicant is only allowed to appeal for one month after the receipt of the rejection letter.

 

The candidate can alternatively send his/her case for reconsideration or start a fresh application if they think that they do not have any valid grounds for opposing the rejection letter.

The Schengen visa is a short stay visa allowing the holders to circulate in the Schengen area. It is a passport-free zone base travel visa. The Schengen agreement consists of 26 European countries out of which 22 are part of the European Union and 4 are part of the European Free Trade Association.

What are the types of Schengen Visas?

Airport Transit Visa—this visa allows you to transit through the international transit areas of airports of the Schengen states.

It should be noted that a Schengen visa does not guarantee you to enter the Schengen states as the final decision depends on the officers at the borders.

The fee for the short stay visas also known as the Schengen visas is fixed at 60 euros since May 2008. But in many cases, you may not have to pay the fee depending on your nationality or status.

It is advised to apply at least two weeks in prior of your scheduled travel. The Embassy will then take 10 working days (usual time) to process the documentation.

While applying for a Schengen visa one always fears the result of the application and the tingling feeling whispering to you that your visa will be denied is always at the back of your mind.

It is a myth that getting a Schengen visa is next to impossible. The process of applying for the visa can be tedious, the interview process can be daunting, and the time taken to get the visa can be excruciating but if you have all the documents required, have the time frame in mind, and have applied in a legal manner then it is not so difficult to obtain the Schengen visa.
