New Assessment of the Reasons for not Granting the Visa
If you have applied for a visa for a stay longer than 90 days (a so-called long-term visa) and you have not been granted it but you think that there has been a breach of law, you can apply for a new assessment of the reasons for not granting a long-term visa. You must apply in writing within 15 days from the day you received the information about not being granted the visa. If you decide to file the application, it must be addressed to the authority that issued the information about the reasons for not granting the visa.
If it was not possible to serve you the notice (information) about the reasons for not granting the visa, the time limit for filing the application starts running on the following day after 180 days passed since you had applied for the visa.
Filing of the application does not have a suspensive effect.
The application must include such information so that it is clear who is filing it and what the reasons are to consider that there is a conflict with the law or that the decision or the proceedings were incorrect. The application cannot be based on facts that you had not proved or stated in your visa application.
If the administrative authority with which you filed the application for a new assessment decides that it will not revoke its contested decision or change it in a way that your application for a new assessment is fully granted, it will refer the matter to an administrative authority competent to examine it.
The competent authority will inform you about the result of the new assessment of the reasons for not granting a long-term visa in writing within 30 days from the day it received the application.
