Visa Refusal

Ask Question

According to the concerned stipulation of the international consular treaty, any citizen has the right to apply for a visa to enter another country, but each sovereign state also has the right to refuse the application. Generally speaking, all countries cannot be expected to issue visas to each and every applicant (except non-visa mutually between countries), so it is not surprising that the application is being refused.

All applicants who apply for a visa to his target country hope to obtain the visa quickly, but if your visa application is rejected, please do not be offended and continuously pester the officials. The correct procedure is to calmly analyze the reason of the refusal. Maybe your credentials and materials are not ready and complete for the purpose of application or your self-condition is not full (some countries have unwritten stipulations that they will not issue a visa to unmarried young woman solely). Under this circumstance, you should try to find a solution to satisfy the condition. If the requirement can not be satisfied, the application should be temporarily halted.

After your visa is refused for the first time, you are still allowed to subsequently re-apply. Some countries (like UK) will inform the applicants in writing stating why the application has been refused and permit you to appeal to the court if you do not agree with their decision. But in the ordinary circumstances, it is very difficult to win such a case. 

 Reason for Visa Refusal

There is no uniform stipulation for the refusal of the visa issuing from one country to the next. But many sovereign states have a set list on which there are reasons why people are not allowed to enter the country. The list will be separately sent to their embassies or consulates stationed and no officials have the right to issue a visa to applicants who meet any of these criteria.

Generally, no country will issue the visa to people within the general categories of contagious patient, psychopath, drug addict, drug trafficker, prostitute, former expellee, those who harm the national security and social order, terrorist, those on forged or fake documents, those who have no safeguard for the living expense when staying abroad.

Hi, I just got married and my passport is still under my maiden name, so I got an NBI clearance showing my maiden name with the single civil status but all my other supporting documents are already under my married name, will this be a reason for visa refusal?

It could be. You need to submit a document that can prove you have changed your name, and the document has to be notarized by related department

  • To whom it may concern.

    I am seeking advice about how to get my same sex spouse to travel with me to China.

    I have been offered a job in China and will be receiving a Z visa. Initially I was informed that my same sex spouse could apply for an S1 visa to accompany me in China.

    After sending my documents to the Chinese embassy, i was contacted and informed that my marriage certificate can not be authenticated due to the fact that we are same sex.

    I would like to know if my spouse can still receive a S1 visa. If not, then what visa can she apply for?

    I will be teaching in Zengcheng.

  • My student visa application to China was rejected and no reason was given. I asked the officer why my application was not approved he said that they do not give explanation. my documents were complete including back up documents from my sponsor.
    Although, during the interview session I was asked why was my uncle sponsoring me as I have reasonable sum of money in my personal account and I have worked under my uncle's company for about 5 years and am about 38 years and unmarried.
    Could marital status and sponsorship affect the application negatively?

  • Hi! I have an employer in Tianjin, China who's willing to shoulder my expenses in applying visa and even my accommodation. He is a Korean who is a CEO in shipping company in China. My position there will be as an office staff (emails). I finished my 4 years in college except my job training that's why I don't have diploma yet and with work experiences. My work experiences were ESL teacher,office staff, and dietary staff in the hospital. My last work was a private tutor to Korean kids in all subjects. I am planning to ask for certificate of employment and proof letter to them because they are not company, just at home. Do you think I have a chance to get Z visa approval?
