    Please post separate questions for each issue. It seems you want to know two things (1) Will this stamp effect schengen visas (2) will this stamp effect future russian visas? Is so please ask two separate questions so some can answer the specific issues respectively. The question, in its current state, is too broad. – Newton Oct 30 '18 at 13:29
  • Makes sense but it’s too late. I can’t extract stuff from here to a new question because there’s answers and comments from Hanky Panky – Ali Gajani Oct 30 '18 at 13:30
  • If you are satisfied with the answer then accept it as valid. Otherwise, edit this question to include just one issue and add a new question for the other one. – Newton Oct 30 '18 at 13:32
  • I don't understand what you mean by "Private visa issue?" We certainly can't tell you what to care about. – David Richerby Oct 30 '18 at 15:36

I was denied without reason. All paperwork in order.

There is no such thing as denied without reason, the reason might not have been conveyed to you but there was obviously some reason for the denial.

I plan to visit Paris in January. Schengen Visa issue?

Guess work but it won't be a big deal.

I plan to try again for Russia next year. Private visa issue?

Guess work but depending upon your other question I guess you were going DIY for a country that prefers properly organized tours. You should be good if you enlist a Russian tour operator/travel agent for help.

How do I know if I was really refused. Stamp doesn’t say.

You paid the fee for a visa and after the application process your passport was returned to you and the process was completed but did not result in a visa and there was no withdrawal of the application , it was definitely a denial.

Do Russia and Schengen states share data on this?

Not through any publicly known treaty.

Should I really care about this ?

Yes, care enough to mention it on all such applications in future that ask if you have ever had a denial.

TL;DR

Denial of a Russian visa is not really a big deal for future Schengen Applications for an applicant that is already a permanent resident of the UK and has s clean travel history. Don't bother too much about it.

  • Thanks for the answer. I thought there is a central database of some sort that records visa denial. – Ali Gajani Oct 30 '18 at 7:45

    Nope there is no such thing. Some countries do share this information but that doesn't mean every country does it with a central database. However please never be tempted to say No for a previous visa denial if ever asked by any country. Denial is bad but not as bad as deception - that attracts a ban. – Hanky Panky Oct 30 '18 at 7:47

    @AliGajani if everything that you say on your other question (travel.stackexchange.com/questions/124551/…) is true and you can afford another visa application I would say go ahead and reapply for your Russian visa using a Russian tour operator. I think you were almost there. – Hanky Panky Oct 30 '18 at 7:52

    Everything I say there is true absolutely and I think the problem can be me having a bloody Pakistani passport. Some guy called Coke suggests getting a notarized letter. – Ali Gajani Oct 30 '18 at 7:53

    @AussieJoe That's a funny answer. Having a visa rejected once doesn't mean you'll get your next one rejected. I don't think there's any truth to that. There are people who get US visas reject 2 times and get it on the third one. – Ali Gajani Nov 16 '18 at 23:43
