Title: First time application for a shengen tourist visa
Post by: SJ on May 09, 2017, 09:29:44 pm
Hie guys,need your help.
I'm a south African by birth and do intend visiting a family friend in the Netherlands in a few months tine.i have gone through all the requirements on the embassy website but just wanted to make sure I'm on the right track.I am basically sponsoring my own trip,in terms of airticket and all other expences when I get there.This Dutch family friend has sent me an invite together with written conformation that she will accomodate me for the duration of my stay in Netherlands,which is about a week before I cross to Germany for another week of sight-seeing.
For my part,I have put together the following documents,1,proof of business operations here in Zimbabwe,including company records and company ownership proof,2,I have put together 3 different bank statements,one personal,the other two for my companies,3,I have also put together a two copies of my business and home title deeds,4,I also have two vehicle registration book in my name.lastly I intend providing proof as well that I have strong family ties here at home,I.e,wife and kid.
With all the above,I was just wondering I they might be anything at all that I might have overlooked.This friend of mine visited me early last year so I'm just making a return visit as promised.
