Wow, sounds really right. I think they followed my Itinerary, the number of days of stay in my application. I'd thought I could stay up to 15 days continuously then exit, and not more than 15 days and get in again as i am actually going there from Edinburgh
Cyberknight:


It means that your total number of days spent in the Schengen zone within the validity of the visa (i.e. between 1 June and 1 July) should not exceed 15 days, irrespective of how many times you enter and exit.

If you applied for a multi-entry visa, you must have given them an itinerary which involves your exiting the Schengen zone (not just France) and re-entering it again and unless it is an error, you were issued a multiple entry visa on the strength of this itinerary. Where possible, try and stick to this itinerary and/or do not alter it radically without demonstrable good reason.

Pls house how help on how to tackle .....

You have not provided proof of sufficient means of subsistence, for the duration of the intended stay or for the return to the country of origin or residence, or for the transit to a third country into which you are certain to be admitted, or you are not in a position to acquire such means lawfully.....with account balance of 2m

Thanks Cyberknight.. u got me thinking in the right direction..well done
Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by Globetrotter101: 6:39pm On May 15
Could you tell what your occupation is and also other docs you have submitted as proof of means of subsistence besides bank statement of 2M?? Only after that one can be able to tell something

I think purpose of visit should be what the trip is all about, how it would benefit you, details of places u would be seeing, addresses of places to visit too and they should relate to where you would be putting up during your trip..for instance u are visiting multiple cities and intend to stay in one city or different cities or in different hotels u should elaborate on that so the VO can understand your schedules, you know,how u plan to manage transportation between the cities or within the same city, how u intend to manage the duration of the trip which u have stated ,just be clear as much as u can and summarize as much as you can too in the simplest of English terms remember you dealing with the French

Please can you help proof read? Please

The only reason tick was purpose of visit. Again, I thought maybe because I applied in January.

Globetrotter, thank you. Please I have my introduction I used last time and all these were carefully itemized. Can someone please help with review?
obaxlove:


Please can you help proof read? Please

I don't know but I think you want more details on purpose of visit and to me that means what your cover letter should cover...so my little insight goes thus:


1.First introduce ur self stating your name,name of your company, your position in the company, what the company does, make reference to show evidence of your company's registration which u have submitted. Evidence of your company's activities

2.Second paragraph should talk about the trip, what it means to you or your company, what you would gain from the trip,its importance. What you intend to do there during your stay

3.Here on the third paragraph, state how u intend to fund the trip, from where the money is coming from with references

4.Now on this paragraph state places you intend to visit ,mention names and addresses, also state where you would stay

5. Conclusion, state your Itinerary like from where you intend flying from and your first point of contact. Then your subsequent activities with time schedules until you depart and then mention your destination after departure with references to your flight Itinerary.

I hope this helps somehow
Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by Globetrotter101: 8:40pm On May 15
Well you have submitted pretty much what it takes to get the Visa but some external factors do apply and they are best known by the VO, with that said, look at these:
1.How did you present your introductory letter?
2.Have you got any travel history before.
3.How does cash flow in and out your bank account within a period of 3 months


I think the above counts a lot

Good day wonderful nairalanders. Been following this thread codely like a needle and today I picked up my passport with one month France tourist Visa . It feels really good cos have been denied b4 when I tried Italy in 2015. I got most info from here. Thanks again wonderful people.

One quick question mighty house..My Visa validity is dated from 1 June 2019 to 1 July 2019 and duration of stay is 15 days though it's a multiple entry Visa.. I need some clearance here cos I'm kind of confused about that 15 days stay duration

My question is can I stay up to 15 days on first trip and exit , then travel again to else where within the schengen region outside France before the expiration of the Visa since it's a multi entry visa?
congratulations on your Visa,you can not exceed 2wks, since is a just a month multiply entry,,yes you can travel again to Schengen places

What kind of deep knowledge do you have about Computer? Can you code/program? Are you a Data Scientist?

Studying an MBA in France is cliche, to be honest. It is not uncommon to see a 23 - 25 year old with 2 Masters; one of which is an MBA. The only difference would be the school you intend to go to: say an MBA in any of these business schools - INSEAD, HEC Paris, ESCP Europe, EDHEC, Rennes, Grenoble and a few others, might make you stand out, thought they are quite costly.

Personally, i would say: go the Computer Science (IT) or Internet of Things (IoT) route; if or when you get the admission. It would help you if you intend to stay back in France.

Is it possible to work and pay Living expenses in france for the duration of studies. Does the language barrier affects student Job opportunities?

The truth is i don't have deep knowledge about Computer, the only thing i can do is just to type with a laptop, i studied Medical Biochem in schl so all this coding and programming sounds abstract to me coz i don't know anything about them...but if i should go for the Computer related course, will i be able to adapt and cope, that's my major concern, and if i opt for the MBA instead, can i still get a Job with that in France and continue working there permanently ?

Getting a job after a degree is not etched in stone. You apply, get invited for interviews and offered a job. I just shared with you the state of things and what would be an advantage to you.

Also, I cannot tell you what you should do, as you know more about your strength and weakness. Therefore, go for what you think can be a good strength for you and give your very best at it.

I cannot give a definite answer to your first question. It is not easy but not impossible if you intend to do that.
Language barrier affects it but there are some opportunities too for traditional english speakers.

Lol. I mailed them about this. You can send it to arrive even after 8days. The process is still daunting tho because they said Visale should be when you obtained certificate of visa application.

I will suggest you go for a course that relates to your undergraduate course, Like Microbiology, Biochemistry etc because the VO might refused to grant you visa if the course you are going for is not related to what you studied.

Hi everyone.

Please I need advise on how to call back for passport having applied for a tourist visa to Netherlands at the France submission centre.

I applied on the 11th April alongside two other people as a group, they're my employees. I got sms/mail for receipt of visa application at the French embassy 12th April and since then, that has been the message when tracked on the tracking site. It's way more than 15 working days now.

Now I need to attend a business meeting in UAE on the 27th May. I think I need to start process on calling back the passport as this UAE trip is more important than the French application.

Thank you.
