I was refused Visa today based on
... " there are reasonable doubts I will be leaving schengen zone after the expiration of my Visa."
So pained man.

How can I correct this even if I reapply.
Thank you guys.

Answer to your question is right there.

Why would an uncle be sponsoring a vacation for an adult with their own income?

You need to show that you can afford a holiday yourself.
Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by HRprof: 3:00pm On Mar 05
Is your uncle in Nigeria?
If yes then he can not sponsor you as an adult

I will advice you to fund your own account or your uncle can help you run your account with inflow and outflow for 3 months then go back to the embassy as self sponsor

In this case, you can use 3months of your salary account since you have a paid verifiable employment.
Create a tie with that.

Avoid packing funds , if you can give it 4 months space and get 3 months bank statement printed .

Good day everyone, I intend visiting France for few hours or rather a day. I have UK visa and travelling to UK soon with airfrance/klm flight. How can I get the visa without going through so much documents submission. Though I will be having a stop over at Paris for few hours. Please advise the best way to go about it.

Goodey my ppl pls are we going to paying for appointment or booking is free
Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by Beverlyhills: 2:47pm On Mar 08
On the VFS website, you pick a date and in the payment section you are expected to pay VFS service charge of N 9,300 on line through Sterling Bank to VFS Abuja( dont panic even if you picked Lagos)Cuŕrently, i dont know if the booking errors have been sorted out.

Someone i know walked in to submit on thursday last week after putting a call across to their Customer service.

The Visa fee of €80 is to be paid for upon Submission.
So if you are having same difficulty best call them .

If i understand you correctly, then the below applies:

Before Jan. 31 2020, you wouldn't have needed a visa since UK was an EU country but now, you need to apply for a transit visa.

You can read up Transit visa here:

Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by ForkDragnet: 9:21am On Mar 09
Has anyone gotten a response from the Portugal embassy?

I applied for a schengen visa since 16th of January up till this moment I am yet to get a response from them

Did anyone apply around this time too and has he/she gotten a response?

The bolded is not true. UK visas have never been recognised for entry into the Schengen area and vice versa.

Secondly, if a Nigerian passport holder, the poster needs a Schengen "C" visa to enter France, not an "A" transit visa. We've answered this question a page or 2 previously.

From what i understood from her write-up, she is stopping over at France to transit to the UK.

Before Brexit, you can transit with a valid UK visa.

That's my point.

The poster isn't transiting in the sense of just passing through the airport and getting on a connecting flight, as she said, she's planning to enter France for a few hours or a day.

Secondly, I don't think that Brexit has changed anything about the waiver of a transit visa for those connecting through CDG or Schiphol to the UK/Ireland, USA, Canada, etc. There is still an ongoing transition period to the end of this year when everything remains the same. However, I haven't yet travelled this year or heard anything in this regard from anyone who has, so I stand to be corrected anyway.

I just got notification email that the conference I plan to attend has been cancelled because of Corona virus. And I got my visa for that purpose, will I have any problem at my arrival if I use it to visit Paris before it expired ?
