Is there any chance that my residence permit application will be rejected?

F.A.Q. answer:
There is a chance that a residence permit application in Latvia can be rejected, but it is pretty small. According to statistics, the amount of rejected applications is estimated to be only around 2.5%. Also, the possible reasons for rejecting an application are clearly discussed in the legal regulations and most of these issues can be figured out before you submit your application, and they mostly relate to you and your personal history. For example, you may receive a rejection if you have provided false information when making a request or if you are found to have been cooperating with Soviet special services, etc. As you see, these reasons can be foreseen and they are fully dependent on your personal history.
