A visa refusal is the rejection of the application for a non-immigrant visa by the immigration authorities. The Luxembourg immigration authorities are called the Directorate of Immigration and fall under the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and are responsible for immigration and citizenship.
Luxembourg is also a signatory to the Schengen Agreement and thus has a common visa policy. It issued 1,408 multiple entry visas out of a total of 1,541 visa applications that it received. The visa refusal rate for the country for the New Delhi Consulate was 11.30% in 2017 out of a total of 1,738 uniform visa applications that it received.
The reasons for visa refusal for this country are same like that for Schengen visa and the reasons will be outlined in the refusal letter.
The most common factors are that the documents are not submitted in the correct order or are forged, the passport is not valid, the letter of reference is invalid, the purpose of visit and the intention to return to the home country are not clear, the funds to cover the expenses are not sufficient, the applicant has a past criminal record that was not disclosed, the applicant has had previous issues with the Schengen visa, the applicant has been banned or an alert has been issued against him/her.
The solutions to visa refusal for this country are also same like that for the Schengen visa and the applicant can either appeal the decision or re-apply.
The applicant can file the appeal with the Embassy in the format specified in official visa refusal letter. The appeal should be filed within one month of the receipt of the refusal and should only be filed if the applicant can back it up with valid grounds for refusing the decision of the immigration authority.
If the applicant has no valid grounds for appealing, then he/she will have to file for a fresh application after meeting the reasons for refusal.
It should be noted that the fee paid for the visa application is non-refundable and one can apply 90 days before the scheduled travel and the Embassy recommends that the application is made at least 15 days prior to your travel to accommodate any unplanned processing delays. The Luxembourg visa is a tough one to obtain like the Schengen visa and so guidance of the advisors must be taken before applying for the visa.
