The Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge is the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees which comes under the Federal Ministry of Interior that is located in Nuremberg.
Germany is the country that receives the most visa applications after France. If you are applying for a student visa, it is advised to apply 3 months before your arrival to Germany, but the visa application process usually can take up to 25 days and costs around 60 euros for all types of German short-stay visas also known as Schengen Visa. The refusal rate for German Visa is 6.92%
Germany is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement along with 26 European states, according to which the Schengen area acts as a single jurisdiction for international travel purposes with a common visa policy. The Schengen Visa allows you to stay up to 90 days for tourist or business purposes.
The authorities refuse to hand out a visa for a variety of reasons but the most common factors are that the correct documents are not supplied, the documents are not presented in the correct format, specified evidence is missing, following advice from family or friends rather than a qualified advisor, non-disclosure of the previous immigration issues, applying for the wrong type of visa.
It could also be because the applicant has insufficient funds for a trip to Germany, the applicant does not have a valid passport or travel document, withholding documentation on criminal record if any, he doesn’t have strong ties in his home country that will encourage him to leave Germany, he doesn’t have a dependable source of income in his home country, his purpose of stay isn’t mentioned or isn’t credible.
The helpless, insulting, and disheartening situation of visa refusal which destroys your plans for a business trip or a vacation to Germany can be resolved with the following remedies:
The candidate can either appeal, apply for a review, 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 which in this case would be Germany 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 German 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.
Thus, we can see that in case of a visa to the Schengen area, the reasons for refusal and the solutions to them are more or less the same. It is always advised to apply as early as possible for the Schengen Visa and if Germany is your main destination in the Schengen Area, then you need to contact the Germany Embassy or Consulate for visa application and refusal process.
