My friend was stopped when she traveled to Germany from Ukraine for a short term (1 week) tourist travel. Ukrainians do NOT NEED Visa to travel to Schengen area. This was not a Visa issue but a quick inetraction with customs officials at the airport.
The reasons given for the denial of entry were the following:
1). She did not have her travel health insurance,
2). Did not have enough funds with her to prove her financial viability 3). Could not show her hotel booking (I booked the hotel on my name and bought her tickets).
Those issues were simple mistakes due to our inexperience. Next time she will have insurance, sufficient funds, bank statement, hotel, tickets, etc. Because this is not a visa application I would assume that such thing will be sufficient?
I want to make sure that when she travels in October to Slovenia (a 1 week tourist trip) we are well prepared and there will be no problem in new denial of entry at the customs.
The document on denial of entry we were given does Not indicate a "travel ban" and looks like a one time denial. Is there an official database where we can find this out for sure? Do you know any good law firms that help with this?
