I have been deported from UK two years ago, because I was charged and sentenced for criminal offence. Would there be any issue if I apply for schengn tourist visa

    Can you apply? Yes, everyone can apply. What kind of issue are you afraid of? The worst thing that can happen is that you will be denied a visa. – Neusser Mar 12 at 18:57

    @David Richerby Why so? Being deported from another country or sentenced for a criminal offence does not bar a person from travelling to Schengen. The application form doesn't even ask that. – uberqe Mar 12 at 19:09
  • @uberqe Sorry, my comment was vague. Deleted and reposted. You should probably post an expanded version of your comment. – David Richerby Mar 12 at 19:17
  • @Neusser But being denied a visa would be a waste of quite a lot of money. It's pretty obvious that they're afraid that their criminal record will result in denial of the visa. – David Richerby Mar 12 at 19:18
  • The UK operates SIS ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/borders-and-visas/… so the deportation data may be available to Schengen countries even if the Schengen application itself does not specifically ask for it. – Traveller Mar 12 at 19:19
