I applied for B2 Tourist visa at Israel embassy in New Delhi last week. But my visa application got rejected and stamped a black stamp on my passport.

What does black stamp mean? After how much time should I reapply for tourist visa?

    It says: A visa request has been submitted on 2/11/2017 in New Delhi – Nean Der Thal Nov 3 '17 at 12:16

  • Did they give you any information about the reason for the rejection? – phoog Nov 3 '17 at 23:09
  • No, they don't give information about the reason for rejection. – user3186829 Nov 4 '17 at 11:56

    I have reapplied for B2 Tourist Visa in the first week of December 2017 and successfully got visa on second attempt. – user3186829 Mar 24 '18 at 17:36

As @NeanDerThal correctly commented, this is not a rejection.

The stamp says, in Hebrew, "A visa request has been submitted. Place: New Delhi. Date: 2/11/17" (i.e. November 2nd 2017).

If this is why you think your application was rejected, you can relax - it was not rejected. I couldn't find reliable information about processing times, but it should take at least a week (one site says 14 business days).

I hope you enjoy your Christmas in Israel.

  • I'm not sure how it works. Perhaps you'll need to bring it back for stamping after a decision is made. But I'm sure that this stamp is not a rejection. – ugoren Nov 5 '17 at 13:44

    Maybe Israel embassy also follows same as what Hungarian Embassy in Doha told me; They put a stamp on Page when application received; If Visa Approved that sticker covers that stamp; if visa not approved no rejection stamp; but all future embassies will see & can use the information that this person applied for Israel Visa & because no sticker, they will automatically deduce that that visa might be rejected. Did OP get a rejection letter too even a basic one saying Your Visa Application is not successful? – DavChana Nov 5 '17 at 14:08
