Questions related to Employment pass

Postby Rangarajan » Sun, 08 May 2005 6:22 pm


I was filling up EP application and I noticed this question :

Have you ever been refused entry into or deported from any country?

Is "Refused a visa for a country" and "refused entry into a country" different?

If someone has been denied a visa (business or working) at any stage by a country, then is does not imply "refused entry"

Can someone throw some light?

Thanks & Regards

I think it's the same, as entry to a country is quite synonimous to visa pertaining to a country...or in a different view maybe you have been authorized to enter but at some time when you applied for a visa...say working visa to the states and have been denied during the application process...

I think that being denied a business visa is different than what they are looking for... criminal activity, health issues and the like.

Why not call MoM and get the real answers there?

Having a visa refused is not necessarily having entry refused. It depends on teh type of visa. You can have a business or employment visa refused but can get a social and visiting visa.
