Why was my Korean visa application denied? Can I make an appeal?

The Embassy never gives the exact reason for denied visa applications.

What you’ll get is just the generic reason for denial on a piece of paper inserted at the back of your passport.  Calling the Embassy to know what really caused the rejection is futile, as it will never disclose the specifics.

As a rule, the Embassy doesn’t accept appeals for rejected visa applications. What you can only do is re-apply after six months.
