[color=#006600][/color]Thanks for your response brother. It's not just the visa, I honored them,I traveled to Kenya vacation,
Then Joburg SA, Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro TZ except for the Ethiopia was for Young Entrepreneurs Seminar.
I have been very busy and have not been able to travel due to the nature of my business that's why I have a virgin passport then. But sincerely I was just so embarrassed when I was denied the Italian Visa then. Other colleagues where just mocking saying why would a director of his own company has a virgin passport loll. Then I see a need for those vacations and later I was nominated for the entrepreneurial seminar in Addis Ababa ET.I wasn't deprate to travel, at least its over 1 year that I applied for the Italian Visa.
I will be glad of more light is shade into this thread.
Thanks in anticipation

My brother I dont know of any embassy but US and Canada dont even want to give visa seeing those African country visas on you P. They believe you are desperate by first getting those visas they prefer you even come with a virgin Passport. That may apply to Shengen to i dont kno.

Hello Cocolacec,
Would a reservation done via hotels.com be accepted ?.

I intend to also pick the pay at hotel option.

Would that be honored at the embassy ?
Thanks

To be honest with you im not well versed in this hotel booking stuff.I will recommend this webpage for further reading.The last time i booked for someone i did it from Bookings .com .I know some embassies dont accept bookings from such sites .You can ask the embasy for clues or vfs centres.

6. One or more member state(s) consider you to be a threat to public policy, internal security, public health as defined in Article 2(19) of Regulation (EC) No 562/2006 (Schengen Borders Code) or the international relations of one or more of the member states).
• You have submitted fake or false documents and / or made contradictory statements.
• You have attempted deceit.
• You have a negative entry in the AZR (Central Register of Foreigners); as long as this remains, it is usually not possible to grant you a visa.

7. Proof of holding an adequate and valid travel medical insurance was not provided.
• You have not submitted any adequate travel health insurance (minimum coverage sum of 30,000 euros / all Schengen states).

8. The information submitted regarding the justification for the purpose and conditions of the intended stay was not reliable.
• You have made contradictory statements on the purpose of stay.

9. Your intention to leave the territory of the member states before the expiry of the visa could not be ascertained
• The Embassy has to work out a return prediction. The documents you have submitted or your other information were not sufficient to predict a positive result as far as your intended trip is concerned. The Embassy takes amongst others the following facts into consideration:
• The family ties to Ghana (spouse, minor children, guardian-unions etc.)
• The professional binding (existence of a fixed employment relationship)
• The economic bond (regular income from rents or real estate assets)
• The employment relationship has not been established / confirmed.
• Proper use of Schengen-Visa in the past
• Changes in the personal situation since the granting of the last Schengen-Visa

Please note that the above list refers to the most common causes of a visa refusal. It shall therefore not be taken for an exhaustive list.

Please, I am about applying for one of the conferences in Norway that would hold before the end of this year.

I don't know if Norway visas are easily available. I want to know my chances of getting the visa.

I think meeting the requirements should be the priority and the ability to convince them you will return to Nigeria .

True you only submit at a vfs centre but on random occassions the embassy can call for an interview as it deems fit.

Boss pls pardon my ignorance , one of the requirements for the schengen visa is a flight booking. If one is denied a visa does it mean the money paid for booking the flight is gone forever or it will be refunded by the airline?

You dont pay any money for booking a flight.You only make reservations for free.The embassy only want to see how your travel plans are i.e whether you will go by flight, Ship etc

Plz who have an idea of how long it takes to get a response for schrngen visa from d German embassy for a virgin passport ist time traveller

Hi Nevilbot.
Are you thru with your Masters in Germany?
Kindly share how easy it is to get a job after Masters completion in Germany. Even if its not the job for the course studied, at least something to keep the graduated masters student in the country after graduation.
Also can one learn and be proficient in German language within few months from Nigeria?
I understand having a proficiency certificate is key to getting a job.
