Decision to close the proceedings

Discontinuance of proceedings is discontinuance of proceedings without completion of processing of an application, and is performed by resolution. The proceedings are halted as soon as the MOI CR learns of the reason for discontinuance and has background materials for it, without producing any further evidence and collection of materials.

The reason for discontinuance of proceedings may arise at the beginning of proceedings, in their course and up until a decision on the matter has been issued.

The legal grounds leading to discontinuance of proceedings on application for residence permit are:

  • special under Section 169r of the Act on the Residence of Foreign Nationals,
  • general under Section 66(1) of the Administrative Procedure Code.

Discontinuance of proceedings in practice means refusal of your application for residence permit or for extension of such.
