I attended my interview this Morin at Austrian embassy Abuja. After all I was told that they will send my application to the Austria immigration and get back to me. The interview was quite tough anyway. Unnecessary questions were flying during the interview.

As of last year October that I submitted, I didn’t book an appointment, and I haven’t seen anyone here since then talked about booking an appointment before going, maybe someone that submitted recently can help us out...

Guys please help.

Is the proof of pension very important? I work in an organisation where they deduct tax and pension from my salary but I'm sure I don't have a pension account. As such, I'm not so sure I can provide the pension statement.

On my letter of offer, the salary is clearly stated including the deductions (both tax and pension).

Will I be able to apply without the pension statement? I earn a little above 250K monthly

Submit copy of your offer letter and bank statement for your salary account.

No one can tell you what your chances are. You may list out your intended documentation so everyone can assist you if any is outstanding.

If you've been through the UK visa process previously, then completing the forms for a Schengen visa and gathering the required supporting documents will be easy for you.

As at 2012, the UK visa process was still paper based and offline, just like the Schengen process is. The Schengen visa form is much much shorter than the UK one (just 3 pages) and easy to complete. Unlike the UK form, you dont need help in completing it.

You have travel history, good home ties and a reasonably good income, so simply put together a coherent itinerary for your trip, save up a commensurate amount in your bank account (vacations are not cheap, so you have to show that you can afford to travel, then come back and still resume your normal life after the expenditure), book verifiable accommodation online, make sure your leave dates and other information tallies with what you will fill in the form, and you're all set. If you need any specific help as you go along, after reading through here, then you just ask.

A pension account statement is not absolutely necessary. Just like property title documents, it's a document that one can present if you have it, as part of evidence showing your ties to Nigeria, but if you don't have it, it's fine.

Everyone's case might not necessarily be the same. If you've been invited for an interview, as usual, arm yourself with the truth. I had to go to Abuja to be interviewed for my first Austrian visa and in my case they concentrated on my travel history (I had previously consulted for an international organisation which required my making a couple of trips to some out-of-the-way places).

Ok. As the Sponsor you have some good documentation to put forward for this application. Remember to get some cancellable tours and a good cover letter, verifable hotel booking. Kindly read backwards to see the documentation used by a family such as yours.

Hi guys, I’m new here .

I intend to study in France for my masters . I am looking to study management related courses. I am also applying to universities in Dijon , Toulouse and BORDEAUX

I wanted to ask you about your experience studying there?
I have searched the whole of YouTube for a Nigerian experience but can’t find.

Could you please enlighten me about studying there? Is it worth it? In terms of getting a post graduate job & pursing residency after?

I’m looking to work part time jobs there to pay of my rent and expenses . I have money for tuition which is currently €3770 per year (Two years)

Is it easy to get a part time job without knowing how to speak french?

I’m already applying to enrol for a french programme here in Nigeria until I leave for studies.

I’m considering the U.K. and France but France because the tuition is cheaper.

Also what documents do I need for visa application?

Should I pay tuition fees before or after I arrive in France?

Can I use my brothers account with more than 10m?

I also have 2.8m in my account.

Also has anyone gotten a scholarship to study in France? How did you get it please

Please help

Thank you

Kindly check the certain country's visa processing time. That would be of great help to know your brother's next line of action.

Submit copy of your offer letter and bank statement for your salary account.

Thank you guys.

Also my salary bank account majorly receives my salary only, I have another savings account that has more funds due to the fact that I use it to run some buying and selling. Do I have to use the 2 statements of account or what do you guys propose?

Furthermore I've never traveled outside the country. I'm in my early 30s and I'm married, do I stand a chance to apply alone or I should apply with my wife too as a family?
Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by hardywaltz(m): 12:07am On Feb 17
Please is it a must that the bank statement should be exactly 3 months.

Mine is about 3 months plus +

Hope its not an issue?

My self introduction letter do i address it to the French Embassy since its them I'm applying or to the Netherlands Embassy (country of destination)?

If your wife works and you both can synchronise your leave dates, apply together. Family vacations look more reliable than a married man travelling alone apparently for vacation purposes, and not for business or to attend a conference. If she doesn't work or earn income, you have to ensure that you present very good financials to cover what is essentially a luxury trip for two persons with no travel history and enable them to continue living comfortably after their return, and throw in more documentation to evidence more and stronger ties to Nigeria.

You can add your savings account if the balance will favour your case. The Europeans do not bother about verifying all credits in accounts the way the UK does.
