What is the basis for rejecting a residence permit for a non-resident?
As a general rule, a residence permit for a non-resident can be rejected if:
- he or she has been deported from the RA or has been deprived of a residence permit (and if less than 3 years have passed since the decision of deport or the refusal of residency permit),
- he or she has been sentenced for committing a serious crime or a particularly serious crime in the RA,
- there are reliable data that he or she wants to harm the national security of the RA, constitutional order, weaken protection, carry out terrorist acts, human trafficking and so on,
- he or she suffers from an infectious disease posing a threat to public health,
- in order to receive residence permit he or she has provided false information or has not submitted necessary documents.
