What To Do If Your Moldova Visa is Refused

People regularly ask us how we can “promise” 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 contact with us if your visa application was denied. 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 Moldova visa and the reasons for the refusal.
