Can I be refused entry to an EU-country?

In very rare cases, an EU country can refuse entry to you or your family members for reasons of “public policy, public security or public health“.

This means the authorities must prove you or your family members pose a “genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat“.

You are entitled to receive this decision in writing, stating all the grounds, and specifying how you can appeal and by when.
