According to Schengen Statistics, applicants from India and Türkiye came in second and third, respectively, with 121,188 and 120,876 visa rejections, while the overall rejection rate was 18 and 15.2%.

Morocco and Russia, which had 119,346 and 68,753 visa applications rejected, respectively, round out the top 10 nations with the highest Schengen visa rejection rates for 2022. Additionally, the two countries’ respective not-issued rates for uniform visas were 15.5 and 28.2.
