What to do if your Cameroon visa is refused?
If your visa is denied for any reason or you are denied entrance at the Schengen border, you will NOT receive a refund. If the border police have denied you admission and intend to deport you back to your home country, the embassy is unable to offer any assistance.
You have the right to contest this verdict. The embassy of the Member State that opted to deny the visa distributes a standard form to notify the applicant of the decision to deny a Schengen visa and the reasons for the denial. People regularly ask us how we can “guarantee” the issuance of a visa. Because all final decisions are made by embassies, there is no way to obtain a 100 percent guarantee. All you can do is ensure that your application is as strong as possible. Please get in touch with us if your visa application was denied.
