Schengen Visa refusal in Ghana

A refusal of a Schengen visa simply means that the consulate determined that you failed to meet the relevant immigration rule(s) at the time of your application. There are a number of reasons why your Schengen visa may be refused. For example, your Schengen visa will be refused if you present a false, counterfeit or forged travel document, or if you fail to provide justification for the purpose and condition of your stay. Your visa will also be refused if you fail to show an intention to leave the territory of the Member States before the expiry of your visa. If your visa is refused, you may appeal the decision against the Member State that refused your visa.

How can we help?

We can help you assess your options following a refusal. Generally, your options will include making an application for a review of the decision if the applicable national law allows it. Other options include making a reapplication for a visa or an appeal.

For this service, we will carry out some preliminary work to ascertain the underlying basis upon which the refusal was based. We will examine the provision(s) of law supporting the refusal together with any other information or document you submitted in support of your application. We will then provide you with an opinion on whether or not you have sufficient basis in law to file the appeal.

If we determine that you have sufficient legal basis, we may do some or all of the following:

  • Conduct legal research to explore provisions in relevant statutes that are favourable to your case
  • Advice you on documentation or evidence required to prove certain facts;
  • Review all supporting documents or information to ensure that they are consistent and coherent;
  • Assess whether local legislation allows you to provide new and further evidence in support of your appeal;
  • Prepare legal grounds of appeal and/or skeletal arguments outlining any legal or factual errors in the decision which justifies that it be set aside;
  • Make timely and periodic follow-ups to ensure that your appeal is determined within the statutory time period;

Schengen quick visa tips

The option to apply for a review of a Schengen visa refusal is always provided by the national law of the Schengen country. Not all Schengen countries provide options for a review. Your Notice of Refusal will usually specify whether you have an option to apply for a review. You do not need to pay any fee for a review of a decision. In reviewing a decision, the consulate may either sustain the original decision (i.e. to affirm the decision of the earlier officer to refuse your application) or withdraw or change its negative decision (i.e. change its decision to refuse you by granting you a visa). You will usually have the right to appeal against the decision to refuse your review application, but not the original decision to refuse.

Schengen quick visa tips

To submit a valid application, you must submit a completed and signed application form, a photograph that meets standard requirements, a passport or travel document with at least two blank pages and a validity period of not less than 3 months after the intended date of departure from the territory. You must also pay your visa fee and submit your biometric data. As a general rule you must submit your application in person.  Some consulates allow for walk-ins while others allow submission of application by appointment only. However persons who are known to the consulate for their integrity and reliability may be exempted from appearing in person. Such persons may submit their application through a third party or by post.
