When is More Required?
For most applicants, this standard documentation and answer will be enough. However, in
rare cases, extra information will be required to clear up discrepancies.
These discrepancies are often minor, and will not be enough to force administrative staff
to reject an application. Instead, they will request further documentation while keeping
the application open. The Taiwanese person will have ten days to return the necessary
documentation or clarifications. They should send these via email.
However, the EU expects some applications will be unacceptable and will therefore be rejected.
It is expected that one in 20 applications will be rejected. However, that does not mean the
application is permanently closed. The emailed rejections are to be accompanied by an explanation
of the rejection and a request for documentation or clarification. Taiwanese people can expect
this will be more extensive than requests for clarification for applications that are not yet
rejected. They will have 96 hours to fulfill the requirements given to them, and the decision
moves to the destination nation. The Schengen nation will have four weeks to make its decision.
