My Schengen visa was denied, what do I do?

Well, you can always reapply to the same Schengen country or a different one. However it will not matter much because the information regarding your  Schengen visa application is accessible to all the Schengen countries. Except if you find out and fix the problems with your Schengen Visa Application or even with yourself  you will continue to get denied or refused by  the Schengen countries .

Then, there is also that option of lodging a Schengen appeal. The procedure varies depending on the Schengen country.

The right of appeal against the refusal of a Schengen visa is provided by law. Article 32(3) of the Schengen Visa Code.

If you have been refused a Schengen visa, you shall have the right to appeal. You should conduct your appeal against the Schengen Member State that took the final decision on the application. 

Why lodging an  appeal instead of applying again and again.

  1. In lodging a Schengen appeal the you had in fact reopened your Schengen visa application process which will be analyzed by a superior officer.
  2. Going for an appeal process you will have the chance to find out the mistakes and get them fixed, avoiding the accumulation of Schengen refusals. The accumalation of many Schengen visa denails may influence another Schengen state member to deny your Schengen visa application. 
  3. If your appeal succeeds,  the refusal issued which remains in Schengen data base will be lifted and instead replaced by granted, increasing the chances of getting your Schengen visa applications granted in the future.
