France D visa for long term on talent passport basis refused on "risk of threat to public order/public security/public health" basis and I have no criminal record and not ever visited Schengen countries. I have appeal option, should I appeal against the decision or submit new visa application? Also will this refusal effect my future UK visa application and also can face any problems while arriving in UK? Am a Pakistani national and applied for France visa from UK.

  • @Traveller My immigration consultant said that they will contact French consulate to gain more information and then will decide whether to appeal or apply again but I read somewhere that appeal can have more serious impacts.

    @Traveller is correct. If you search for "immigration advisor," "travel advisor," or "travel consultant" in the search box at the top of any SE page, you'll find pages and pages of info that non-lawyer non-solicitor advisors often give poor and inaccurate advice. You will get much more accurate information — at a higher cost — by consulting a French lawyer with immigration experience. Dec 28, 2022 at 15:40
  • Have you ever applied for a visa to any Schengen country before (especially Switzerland)? Dec 28, 2022 at 22:14
