Poland Visa Rejected: What I Do Next?
First of all, you don’t have to worry! please calm down. For the first time, my national visa of Poland also got rejected. Now think from their side, why your visa is not acceptable to them. Also, they clearly mention on refusal letter, why your Poland Visa is refused.
Now, I will help you to get your visa if you have genuine documents and your intentions are not to stay there. In addition, you will be charged you the same amount for every appeal application. So don’t forget to bring money with you at the embassy.
Appeal Letter For Schengen Visa Or National Visa
Submit an appeal letter with documents which covers your refusal points. After submitting your remaining documents on the counter and they will say you to wait outside for your interview.
Now, this is very important as per my views because it can make your life. If they say that there is no need of interview because consular don’t think it is important. If it happens to you then please wait! Maybe next time you will not get a chance to clear your things to consular. So Let’s us understand!
How I Get My Visa Appeal Approved?
First of all, my national visa for Poland was rejected for two reasons.
- Your intention to leave the territory of the member states before the expiry of the could not be ascertained.
- You have not justified the purpose or conditions of the intended stays.
Now, you have to prove that you will not do any illegal immigrant and you will back to your country after completing your studies. So, I knock on the consular door and ask him to give me only 5 minutes. And he says okay I will call you please wait outside. After that, he calls me inside of the room and we start talking.
I explain to consular that I will not do any illegal immigrant and I will back to my country. For that, I show them, my father legal business documents and cards. I make him believe that I just want to go there for studies only.
Finally, he wrote everything that I explain him on the backside of my application which increases chances of getting my visa. I think most important is to talk them about your purpose. It will help you to get your visa quickly without any rejections.
