A visa is an official stamp of the embassy or the high commission of a country. This stamp in the individual’s passport or the traveling document authorizes him to travel to that country for a period of time which is stated on the visa and also for the particular purpose which is also stated.
In case an individual, visits a country without a visa then he may be repatriated in case he is caught by the authorities of that country. Visa can be issued to any person who satisfies the visa rules and regulations. Most of the times people get denied to get a visa and the reason is not that they are not qualified to get a visa, but the reason is that they refuse to use the simple knowledge to understand what the visa officers want from them. Here we have for you a list of things that you must do to ensure that your visa does not get rejected.
The first thing to check is whether your passport is virgin or not. A virgin passport is one that is issued newly. It may have been issued earlier but if there is no stamp of a visa on it, then this shows that the bearer of the passport has not gone overseas after the issue of passport .On the other hand if a person has got a visa to another country earlier then his passport is said to have lost its virginity. This shows that the country issuing a visa to him had confidence in him.
The important thing to learn here is that you should not apply for a visa in a high rejection country with a virgin passport. Chances are high that your passport will be stamped as “visa refused” this will have other effects such as discrediting your passport in case of other visa applications and you will also lose the visa fees as in most of the cases it is non refundable.
Now the question arises, how can you first use your passport? The best way to do is through travel and tours company. There are a lot of Travel and Tours Company and for a small fee you can get assistance in acquiring your visa.
Here is a list of certain questions you must be prepared with before you face the embassy.
