Plenty of denials occur, either related to visas, permits of residence or citizenship. Citizens can appeal the Public Administration’s decisions, which will lead to a revision of the administrative act by the same authority that had issued it, as long as it ends the administrative procedure. This kind of appeal is potestative, given the fact that it can be skipped, directly lodging the Contentious Administrative Appeal.

The reasons why denials occur are several and they will depend according to each case: lack of documentation, not proving the required period of residence, criminal record, expired or defective documentation, etc.
