A visa refusal is the rejection of the application for a non-immigrant visa by the immigration authorities. The immigration authorities come under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic.
Slovakia is also a signatory to the Schengen Agreement and has a common visa policy. The visa would cost you around 60 euros and it is advised to apply for the visa at least three weeks in advance to avoid any delays. The visa refusal rate for the country for the New Delhi Consulate was 8.20% for the total 477 applications received by it in 2017.
The most common factors that the visa applications are rejected are that the correct documents are not submitted or the documents are forged, the documents are not presented in the correct manner, the purpose of the visit and the intention to return to the home country is not mentioned, the funds to cover the expenses of the travel are not sufficient, the travel insurance coverage is not adequate, the applicant has a criminal record that is not disclosed, the applicant has an alert issued on his name or his name is registered by the Schengen Information Services (SIS) for he/she may pose a threat to the national security of the country.
The solutions to visa refusal are that the applicant can either appeal against the decision or he re-apply. The fee paid for the visa application is non-refundable as it includes the fee for the examination of the application.
The reasons for the visa refusal are notified in the official refusal letter. The applicant can appeal the decision to the Embassy/Consulate General of the Slovak Republic within 15 days of the receipt of the refusal letter, in the format specified in the letter. The appeal should mention the reasons for refusing the decision of the authorities and should be submitted in the Slovak language. A fee of 30 euros has to be paid for making an appeal and if the appeal is accepted and the application is re-opened, the fee is refunded.
If the applicant has no grounds to make the appeal, then he/she will have to file for a fresh application after meeting the reasons for refusal.
The Schengen visa is the most difficult one to be obtained and a short stay Schengen visa can be used for one or several entries. A single-entry visa will expire once you leave the Schengen area but the multiple entry visa will allow you to enter and leave multiple times. Slovakia is a central European country and the visa application for this country should be filled with caution.
