The link here mentions the following:

  1. If you have been refused a visa by an Embassy or High Commission, written explanation about reason for trip and refusal letter.

If the visa refusal was from a country other than the Schengen states (for example, the US), does the above apply to that refusal too?


Did you apply for visa from an embassy or high commission and get a refusal? If so, yes you will have to mention it.

The question does not ask if you were refused by an embassy of a Schengen country, it asks if you were ever refused a visa anywhere. This would include the USA.

  • AFAIK USA visas are sometimes issued by consulates and not Embassies.

    I would still be inclined to mention such a refusal.
