What to do if your visa to Kyrgyzstan is refused?
You have the right to dispute this verdict. The embassy of the Member State that decided to deny the visa distributes a standard form to notify the applicant of the decision to deny a Kyrgyzstan visa and the reasons for the refusal. 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 make contact with us if your visa request was rejected.
A Kyrgyzstan visa is typically issued between three to five business days. The application process can take up to 15 days in exceptional situations.
Certain nationalities can get visas for numerous entries into Kyrgyzstan.
Sponsorship for a visa is necessary in Kyrgyzstan if the applicant cannot fund his or her own educational or tourist-related expenses for the duration of the stay. A sponsor may be a parent, brother, other relative, or even a close acquaintance. However, the likelihood of obtaining a visa increases if the sponsor is a first-degree relative or possesses a permanent residence permit or Kyrgyzstani citizenship. The following documents are requested from the sponsor:
A signed sponsorship letter that clearly specifies the relationship with the applicant, the expenses that will be covered, the personal and contact information of both the applicant and the sponsor, and the applicant’s accommodation information.
A scanned copy of the identification documentation, such as bank statements or pay stubs.
if applicable, proof of estate or business ownership
Visas for long-term or short-term business, legal, or cultural stays in Kyrgyzstan can also be sponsored by legal entities, businesses, or private persons. Remember that additional supporting documents may be required when applying for a visa with sponsorship.
