Earlier in this forum I asked your advice. We( me and my husband) applied twice for our SriLankan friend/guide to visit us in the Netherlands, we want to help him starting his own business. Talk in real life instead of over the phone and ofcourse also show him our country. He's been our friend for 15 years.

After 2 refusals we made an appeal. We send it to Swiss. We just found out by a short email that also this appeal has been refused. So not only is it costing us hundreds of euros, also there seems to be no way to invite someone from SriLanka to Europe.

Anyone who did succeed, could you tell us how? And are there any possibilities left after an appeal has been refused?

Thanks for reading,

Having the appeal refused, there are not many options left. You could try sending an inquiry to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as that organization supervises embassies. Or even better, try getting an in-person interview.

He could try applying at some other Schengen country. Since your appeal has been already denied, there is not much you (he) can lose by submitting another application at some different embassy, besides visa application fee and time, of course. The embassies are connected through an information system which holds information on previous travel and previous applications, so I would not rely on it too much, but the chance is that at some other embassy a better officer will just avoid looking up his previous history, or just ignore it and grant him visa.
