Information for rejected visas

What if my application is turned down?

It's possible to appeal a decision on an entry visa. The decision to reject an application for an entry visa always has justification. This means that you get information in the decision as to why your application was rejected.

If you received a decision you are not satisfied with, you can submit a written appeal no later than 3 weeks from the day you received the decision.

How to appeal?

In your appeal, write down which decision you are not satisfied with, and why and how you want it to be changed. If you have any documents that you didn’t submit earlier, you can supplement your case with them.

Your appeal should be submitted to the Embassy of Sweden in Khartoum in writing through mail or e-mail, but it should only be sent once, please do not send it several times or in different ways.

The Embassy will verify that the appeal came in on time and will go over the case again. If more than 3 weeks have passed since you were informed about decision, the appeal will be rejected; in that case you will have to submit a new visa application.

If the Embassy changes the decision

The decision can be changed if new information comes in or if the Embassy considers the decision to be wrong. In that case you will be notified, and the entry visa placed in your passport.

If the Embassy does not change the decision, it will be forwarded

If the appeal came in on time and the Embassy sees no reason to change the decision, the case will be forwarded as soon as possible. Your application, the decision, and all other documents submitted in the case will be sent to the Administrative Court in Göteborg. The Administrative Court then makes a decision and notifies you at the address you specified in the application or in the appeal.

After the case has been handed over to the court, all questions about the case should be addressed to them. You find their contact information here.
