What To Do If Your Palau Visa is Refused
People constantly 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. You have the ability to challenge this judgement. 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 Palau visa and the reasons for the refusal.
