Oslo Norway (By Ahmed Tanveer): Today according to  Schengen Visa Statistics show that in 2021, these four countries had the highest rejection rates of the visa applications submitted by travellers from third countries wishing to visit their territory. Applicants filing a Schengen visa application at the embassies, consulates and other visa centres of Denmark, France, Norway, and Sweden in 2021 were the most likely to have their application rejected, compared to the visa issuing services of the other Schengen Area countries. While Sweden leads the list, rejecting 30.6 per cent of the 22,260 visa applications received, the other countries stand as below:
