Have you applied for a Schengen Visa?

See results without voting

The easiest way to get a Schengen visa in the Philippines without a personal interview (possible) is discussed in this page together with the application process and list of requirements for Filipino citizens to get a Schengen visa and travel all the countries and territories listed under the agreement. How much will it cost, where can you get the insurance requirement and the like. So let’s proceed.

Schengen Visa will allow anyone including Filipinos to travel and visit 22 European countries and 3 non-European in just one visa. If you want to visit Europe and some countries around it without processing and attending lots of visa appointments, the Schengen is for you. We all know that as a Philippine passport-holder, we are required to obtain visa in traveling and visiting countries around the world except some ASEAN countries and few more. However, countries like USA, UK, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and more, require us to process visa before out travel. But with Schengen, in one visa, you can visit the following countries and places as long as the visa is valid. Imagine how much money we could save and how many appointments we won’t need once we have this special visa. So so much!

List of countries you can visit having the Schengen Visa (currently 25 countries)



Czech Republic























How long can we stay in the countries listed above?

We can stay up to the allowed time which is a maximum of 90 days in a 6 month period. So you must schedule and book your flights and accommodations for your journey within the timeframe or validity of the Schengen visa.

Can we work or study using the Schengen visa?

Obviously, no. Schengen visa is a “visitor visa” only and is designed for the purpose of tourism, travel, leisure or business.

Schengen Visa Requirements for Filipinos

The requirements for Filipino citizens and Philippine-passport-holders for the application of Schengen visa are as follows. It is recommended to obtain and process the visa in the embassy of the country you want to visit first or the last or the country you want to spend your time longer.

Tips in Schengen Visa Application in the Philippines

  • Before you apply in the embassy of the country you chose, make sure of the following:
  • Complete your requirements and documents first
  • Finalized your flight booking, itinerary, accommodations, tour schedules
  • Double check everything before proceeding to the application of visa
  • You can apply and make an appointment as early as 3 months prior to your European trip
  • Apply at Italy Embassy in Manila since they don’t require personal interview as long as your documents are complete and consistent (other embassies like France, Spain and others require interviews

Schengen Visa Requirements for Filipinos

  • Fully accomplished and signed application form
  • Valid passport (valid at least 6 months from the date of travel)
  • Photocopy of valid passport and former visas (colored photocopy recommended)
  • Passport-sized photos in white background
  • NSO Authenticated Birth Certificate
  • NSO Authenticated Marriage Certificate (if married)
  • Invitation Letter addressed to the Embassy if a friend or relative will accommodate the stay of the applicant in his/her house or residence. The letter of invitation however is required to be made by a National, Citizen or Foreign Resident in the country you are applying this visa. This letter of invitation must be supported and accompanied by a document of identity or permit of stay. This Invitation Letter usually has a format and can be downloaded from the embassy or consulate of the country you are applying your visa.
  • Roundtrip tickets (officially confirmed by the airline)
  • Detailed itinerary which includes departure and arrival time and dates
  • Hotel accommodations vouchers and booking receipts
  • Proof of Financial Capacity, Income and Sufficient Funds which includes the following:

-----------Bank Account SOA (Statement of Account for the latest 3 months)

-----------Bank Certification

-----------Updated Passbook

-----------Recent ITR (income Tax Return)

-----------Credit card billing statements from latest 3 consecutive months

  • Certification of Employment signed by your company (if employed)
  • Approved Leave of Absence
  • Travel Order (if working in the government)
  • Business Registration Certificate (if Self-employed)
  • Visa processing fee (per embassy requirement)
  • Affidavit of Support and Consent from both parents (for minors only)
  • DSWD Clearance for minors not travelling with parents (for minors only)

Take note that requirements may be added anytime so it’s better to check in the embassy you are applying the visa. I recommend personal documents like passport, NSO BC, proof of funds and others must be secured first then just follow your travel tickets, itinerary and accommodation. Finalized those dates since I’m sure you are traveling to different countries in Europe and you are gonna take the opportunity to visit as many places as you can.

Some embassies prefer online application for the Schengen visa but embassy like Italy process them by call center and you will call their hotline to make the schedule as to when your documents and requirements will be picked up by their courier service. If you have completed the documents and requirements and they are all consistent and tally, then your visa will be approved in like 5 to 7 days. Some embassies request personal interviews if they wish to know more. Italy Embassy in Manila, interviews are not done like others. So if you wish to stay longer in Italy or Milan, the Italy way is for you. Cost of visa application form is about P3,550 not including the courier service for about 450 and the call fees when you call their PIASI Call Center.

Some embassies like Spain, French Embassy and Netherlands also approve Schengen visas easily less strict than others.

Hello there. London is in the UK, it's not covered under the Schengen countries yet. Filipinos need visa to visit London or anywhere in the UK. If you have a Schengen visa, you still need to apply for a tourist visa for London. Have a sweet day :)

If you are a Filipino, it's either you apply for a tourist visa at the Austrain Embassy in Bahrain or apply for a Schengen visa to visit Austria and other European countries at the same time or in the future. Schengen visa is an option for those who wish to travel many European territories in one visa.

The fastest way possible is you complete all the documents first and schedule your European tour and itinerary. Then just submit all the requirements in the French Embassy Manila). You can also use an agency who will process the stuff for you but you will pay service fees for this. If your documents are complete, you can just process them yourself.

Read the article completely above so you won't miss any requirement. The decision of the approval of Schengen visa depends upon your requirements and their consistency. Thanks for dropping by!

Hi you said "Some embassies like Spain, French Embassy and Netherlands also approve Schengen visas easily less strict than others." Is Germany a strict? Are akk Schengen visa application require for you to have an interview or there are cases where you won't be having an interview? Thank you!

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

@Jm you must show a business permit or DTI registration even if your business is just small. That document shows a lot of proof and is a big factor to get approved if you have no regular job

@Rian I can only say Italy Embassy for the no-interview now since I haven't heard with the others although from a survey I read from a forum, those embassies I mentioned are OK too. Make sure your documents are consistent and tally with each other so you'll get approved easier

I am thankful for the informations you have posted on this site, I took most of my basis here in preparing my Schengen Visa ( visitor's visa) applied at the German Embassy, from the date of my interview up to the issuance of my visa, it just took me three days. Now am flying next week to visit France,Austria and Germany. More Power to your Site!..

@May Yaeh it is fine, make Italy your first destination so the consul would not ask more..

@Anne you can show proofs of funds of your parents and just tell the embassy they will shoulder your pocket money and accommodation costs. Show some supporting documents like your parent’s letter or anything that could justify your reasons. Schengen visa is not a sponsor visa so it is not advisable you use a sponsor to shoulder everything for your trip.

@Skyheights Wow, happy trip to you. Bon voyage! I’m glad the info given in this page has helped you to get your Schengen visa successfully :)

@Ghelay if you are using your bf as a sponsor, you can apply for a fiancé visa instead of Schengen. I will make a page about fiancé visa for Netherlands soon.

@Michelle hi there! Yes, your parents can apply easily provided they submit the requirements needed. You can submit their pension passbook or voucher plus a pensioner’s record from the SSS. You can also register online for the MY SSS to print their SSS profile too. I have a page about that here in case you want to register your parents. Make sure, you have their SSS reference when registering.

@Thin you can apply for fiancé visa at the French Embassy in Manila or you can choose tourist visa too. See the details at the embassy’s official website.

i am working in saudi arabia; God's willing i will be on Philippines for a vacation this coming dec.2012 for 2months and planning to treat my family (my 2kids and husband) a tour to Italy, Sweden, Germany etc... Do we need to get individual Schengen visa.?!? only this two (2) requirement are absent in my part (1.)Recent ITR (income Tax Return) 2.)Credit card. (Do i need to apply credit cards.?!?) Thus my Aunts in Sweden (permanently resident holder) can add help for us to support our applications.?!? what would be the best advice you will recommend for us to grant our visa and have the great tour ever.?!? :)) thanks in advance Ms.twentyfive!

God Bless You! and more power!

Hi there! Yes each of you needs a Schengen visa. The ITR and Credit Card statements are supporting documents only (means you won't be needing them as long as you provide enough proof of your financial capacity such as bank statement, passbook, bank certification). As an alternative with the ITR and credit card, you can also pass land titles, vehicle registration etc. If your bank account is so huge, I think the embassy won't be needing more evidence of ITR and credit cards.

Happy trip!

God bless you too!

Hi! I'm a Filipino working in China and would like to apply for a tourist visa to Italy. My BF is providing an invitation letter (downloaded format from the consulate's website). I have all the requirements but still would like to clarify a few things:

*Is it ok if my socio-professional standing is from my country of employment (China) and not in my permanent country of residence (Phils.)?

*Would a bank certification indicating all the amount I have in my account be sufficient proof of funds? Because I don't have an ITR nor credit card billing.

Please advise. Thank you!

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

Yeah I think it's ok. Yeah a bank account will be enough if you don't have a credit card in the country you are residing. You can use ATM card instead. You'll get approved as long as you provided all requirements plus supporting documents indicating your job contract and work permit in China

Hallo, need your advice. I want to invite my parents here in Austria next year. My family has a residence permit here since I worked here for 2 years now. My question, is my two years stay here will be a factor for the approval of the tourist visa of my parents? How many years should I stay here first before I can invite my parents or friends here as tourist? Many Thanks!

Hi there. I'm not sure if it is a requirement to be a citizen before you can invite anyone to visit. I recommend you contact the embassy where you will apply to ask more about that. If you are a permanent resident there already, you can wait for another years coz different countries have different rules as to citizenship and immigration

helo there! my husband is a seaman and requested his office to stay me on board by next year (God's willing). As per office advice i need to get a Schengen visa since the vessel trading in Algeciras- Spain; Bremerhaven and Hamburg- Germany; Felixtowe-UK; Le Havre- France then Port Tangier Mediterrancee- Morocco. (all the places mentioned is just a 1-2 day stay on port) Well, the company will pay for my tickets (vice visa) and will also provide the guarantee letter or any support needful for the process. My question is: 1. do i need to show my statement of bank account even if i am just staying on the vessel? 2. Do i still need my ITR since i stop working already since 2008? Can u suggest what am going to do about this matter since i wanted to process by my own self as not to defend from the office personnel and to lessen up also their work load in the office since they also have to many crews to attend to... thank you!

@Chrisdell hi! Yes you still need to show proof of funds. If you are not employed anymore, tell them also. Don’t submit ITR anymore coz it’s been years.. In my opinion, they will approve you if the employment papers, permits of your husband are all complete. If they want to know more about you, they will ask you in the interview anyway. Don’t worry too much. Be honest, and you’ll get it :)

@Sey find the embassy of the country in SG (example: Italian embassy etc) and apply ther

Is it possible to apply witouht ITR but I can provide Certification of Employment and Approved Leave of Absence from my company.

hope to hear from you soon

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

@Sharon I think the requirements are the same except for the application form and the fees. If they request you more documents, submit them. Visit the embassy of Netherlands website to download the application form. God bless. :)

@Alles hmmm that is strange since ITR are always given to employees every quarter or every year. They give us the information of our taxes and other compensation benefits. I think it’s still possible to apply without ITR provided you will submit certification of employment, recent payslip or certification of company position and salary. They might ask more supporting documents if they want more details. I think if your papers are consistent, you won’t need to provide more :) Good luck!

Hi.. I actually got a lot of question in mind.. But don't know here to start...

I am planning to visit Germany next year to visit my boyfriend. Of course, food and accommodation will be on him.. I got a budget in mind already, but it will be lessen as I will be pursing my own ticket.. Is there a specific amount that I need to have on my account? I am not working as of the moment and might not be working up until the time that I will applying for the visit visa. I am working under a contractual job for a couple of years now.. I've read in this page that chances of getting approve is high if one is employed..

It was written here that it is easier to apply in Italy as there's no interview needed.. You've mentioned that it's ok even if I'll stay for a week only.. But I am thinking that since Netherlands is closer to Germany, about 3 hours ride only, would it be better for me to apply in Netherlands instead.. Considering that I know someone from there too.. Is it also ok to stay for a week only?

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

@Banshee yeah it’s possible if they will have a visa too. Some embassies allow group visa application, contact the embassy for that. There is usually a format for the invitation letter which can be downloaded from the embassy you wish to apply. If there is no format, just read the details from the article above about the invitation letter to know what to include. If I have time, I will be posting a sample here soon. Thank you.

@Imelda yeah if there is Embassy or Consulate Office of Malta in London

@Anneth I think (IMHO) 6 digits fund in pesos is enough. The more the better. A contractual job is better than not having one. No interview is possible only if the application has submitted enough proofs and supporting documents plus all documents are consistent with each other then there won’t be a need for interview although the applicants are being called/contacted for interview if the embassy is not satisfied..I suggest you apply to the embassy of the country you will visit first or to the country of the invitation letter was sent from.

@Chrystal for training I think you have to apply for a student visa or a visa specifically for your training or short term education in Germany. Please visit the Embassy of Germany to know about it. Schengen is for travel and leisure purpose only

Hi twentyfive, i think there is no such thing as fiancé visa. Im here now living in Netherlands for a few months now. When im started processing my visa as tourist, first they denied it and then we make an appeal, and after 3 months waiting, they granted 90 days single entry schengen visa. I asked for fiancé visa as we planned before applying tourist visa and they say no such thing as that. You need to go for examination MVV examen to stay or joining partner in Netherlands.

Macrina 4 years ago

Hi Ghelay, I read your post and if your bf sponsoring you for the trip, he will need to go to his townhall where he lives and ask for the sponsorship form (forgot the name in dutch) stamp by the municipality and send it to you original, and all the papers that your bf need to send to you submit it to the dutch embassy in makati together with all your documents. Did your bf visit you in philippines? How many times he visit you there? If once only, for my own opinion i think they will not grant you a visa, its not proving that the relationship is genuine. If he visited you already, kindly ask your bf the copy of immigration stamp that prove he enters philippines and going out ( meaning back in holland) the embassy ask that document. And if he booked a hotel in ph, ask for a copy of booking reservation too, and some pictures of the two of you, that will help a lot. Once the visa is approve, you can travel to Holland (old name for Netherlands) and if you want to stay here for longer time, you need to undergo examination in our country, it is called MACHTIGING VOOR VOORLOPIG VERBLIJF (MVV) once you pass, your bf can start the processing here in holland. But kindly check the dutch embassy website because I know last year I think or November

Macrina 4 years ago

Thank you twentyfive. Sad to say but its true. You only have to go to MVV examination at the embassy in the Philippines. But you have to study first, it depends on you whether online at or in a school located in manila. Its very expensive to study dutch language, and more cheaper online. But the thing is, you don't have someone to explain to you what you don't understand. Until now, Im still stduying for my permanent residence. MVV is a very long way process, and to be being a dutch citizen is a much more long way to go.

@Ginger hello there! The term sponsor visa is so complex. Requirements to embassies are usually the same but you still need to verify from them. Check them at Norway embassy since Norway embassy handles visa permits to Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Estonia. I think all countries are strict but you will surely have no problem if you have complete documents and you will comply with their rules. If you’re visiting your boyfriend, you need a letter of invitation from him and a copy of his passport. Proof of funds is one of the major requirements too. See the checklist for Denmark Schengen visa at this page

@Macrina Dutch is one interesting language. I hope and pray you will pass the said examination. God bless you and your family. Thank you so much for sharing useful info here. It helps us a lot.

@Paula you can contact the embassy’s hotline and ask them about forwarding the extra photos needed or you can wait for a feedback from them without contacting since some embassies prefer don’t callbacks and follow ups because they always notify the applicant whatever the status of the application is

@Marvie is there no Hungary embassy in Manila?

@Emem there is no specific amount for the funds as long as the fund proves you’re liquid enough I think that’s why they require it “proof of financial capacity.” You may not submit an ITR if you submitted the other requirements although it may be requested if the embassy need more supporting document. Don’t worry too much. Just make sure your documents and the info on there are consistent, then you’ll have no problem.

@Jay you may apply either a tourist visa or Schengen visa if you want. Just visit the French Embassy in Australia to know more

Makakasuhan ba aq ng Norway kung tourist lang aq tapos naghahanap aq ng trabaho doon???

@Badetzki hi! If they asked you why you don’t have the COE, just explain your side and tell them about your last internship and board exam plan. If you have a certificate from the internship, that might help too.

@emem Pleasure! :)

@Tikboy thanks!

@Lora Good luck to you and your dreams :) God bless you!

@Jake Schengen visa is not for work purposes. It’s always best to follow the rules.

I already had my interview last friday. I'm really nervous for the result, the interview was so short ( i don't know if i will be happy bec. it was short or i will be scared bec. it was short hehehe).

In german embassy they have this check list on what you have to submit so what i did was just follow their checklist. Some told me i can submit some additional documents but i did not ( haaayz ).

The interviewer did not ask for any bank certificate or bank statement, or any certificate from my internship he didn't even ask why i don't have work etc; he just ask me 6 questions and that's it. so now im really nervous.

There are the only documents i submitted:

1. Formal Obligation from my aunt

2. My aunt's birth cert, ID, marriage certificate, written letter of invitation

3. Travel insurance

4. My birth cert.

5. my passport and 2 pictures

( although I have some other documents in-case he need it..)

BTW thank you for this post it's very helpful.

@Badetzki I think it’s a positive thing that your interview was short :) And since they didn’t ask you additional documents, that means they are not really needed :) Wow, congratulations in advance :) Happy this article help you in some ways :)

@Cristine the format is available on the embassy you are going. Please request one from them or download it online if they are available. I think they always are :)

hi, i juz went frm german embassy with my interview and i submitted all the documents even its not listed juz to make sure that my visa was granted. the main purpose of my stay is to act as a witness to my cousins wedding. the interviewer ask me some question and i answered her back but im nervous if my visa will be granted because she stamped something on my passport and told me juz wait for 3 day and the courier will send my passport back. The wedding is on March 01 but my flight supposed to be this Feb. 21 would there be a problem, I was praying that my visa will be granted bcoz this will be my 2nd time the first time was denied 3yrs ago. I've even submitted my cousins passport she even ask me why am I the only one invited I told her its because its not a grand wedding its just a simple wedding and from my cousins obligation she stated that i was a witness to her wedding. Pls. help me. If it was denied I will only have 1 week to appeal would it still work for them to grant my visa? but i really hope so that it will be granted this time.thank you!godbless...

I am accompanying my mom to London this August and our trip will be sponsored by my brother and his wife. My brother told me to get also a schengen visa so that we can also visit France other Europeran countries. As can be gleaned, my trip to France will be from London. Can I tell the interviewer that our trip to France is in conjunction with our trip to London ? Do i still need to submit a Eurostar train ticket (in lieu of plane ticket)?

Thanks for your reply.

@Ana ITR, business registration and other supporting documents can be photocopied although prepare the original ones in case they request them

@Cdizon yes his invitation letter may support your application in visiting Spain. If you are applying for Schengen visa, you can visit other countries while visiting Spain too

@Charlotte it sounds like you were approved though because your passport will be delivered to you :) Don’t worry too much. If your papers are all complete and no more questions asked, I think you’ll get approved.

@Luisa Londok is in the UK and it’s not among the listed countries in the Schengen program so you must get a separate visa for UK for your visit. Yes, mention the places you will visit if the interviewer asked you it. If they asked your UK visa too, prepare a copy of it.

@Nica check their fiancé visa requirements. Some countries have separate visa for fiancé and marriage

@Mar I think you can use that visa anywhere as long as it is valid and not expired and as long as you have enough documents to support your stay from the country you wish to depart

@John you can apply at the Austrian Embassy in Dubai or UAE in person. I think personal appearance is required because that is one of the requirements here in Manila. The requirements for Schengen are listed above.

Hi, this is very helpful.even the comments exchanged gave me an understanding somehow. Can anybody help me give insights on my particular situation? I applied for a tourist visa good for 26days (my term break) in the GERMAN EMBASSY last march 25.

i would want to travel there on march 28 and get back on the 22nd just in time for my fourth semester (and ill be a senior by then). my sponsor is my Husband. (he is a U.S army base in germany , got married last december but i don't have plans to migrate with him (there is another policy for this being a military wife) so i didn't do any paper works on that yet (im still finishing my degree,wouldn't want to live PH unless i have a diploma,kakahiya kay hubby, may masters na xa at malapit na akong matapos anyway) kaya INSHORT. tourist visa lang sa german embassy inapply ko kasi para mapuntahan ko xa dun saglit .


1. i gave all the documents needed and my passport under my maiden name (nadelay dfa sa release ng change of name ko ,dapat before march 25 but naging avail xa march 25 ng hapon. SUCKS!) even more actually. (my father is a seaman and im the primary allottee, i submit his contract of work with my name in their AS one of my FINANCIAL DOCUMENT ) though MERON akong formal obligation para lam nila na ako nagbabayad ng tuition ko at pamumuhay dito saten.

2. Ang PROBLEMA, kahit kumpleto documents ko, tinignan lang ng consul, sinort out, tapos binalik sa akin yung iba ( grade certification, my bank statements, TRAVEL INSURANCE, ITINERARY, ALLOTMENT slip ng dad ko pertaining to me as his primary allottee)

kinuha nya lahat ng documents about kay hubby tapos sa part ko eh yung passport lang, school certification na enrolled ako at kung gano kahaba ang term break bago yun sumunod na sem pati yung bank certification ko then xerox ng marriage contract at formal obligation)

3. NGAYON, after 2 days tumawag si german embassy. sabi nila, mali yung passport na pinasa mo, (in short pinapalitan saken yung passport ko , so kinuha ko duon,punta ako dfa, pinakancel ko na yun passport (since avail na new passport ko) at bumalik ng german embassy para ipasa yung renewed passport with my married name)

suddenly sabi ni girl don, bayad ako ng another 6oeuro. so by changing my passport along the process two processing fee ang binayadan ko. nung mismong appointment ko(monday) at nung pinalitan ko (friday)passport ko. then sabi ni girl ulit. wait ako 2 to 3 working days.


3. 1st day of waiting ko today (monday, March 04) naisip ko lang na baka madeny ako kasi naalala ko bukod sa may mga document na di kinuha saken, di rin kinuha yung photocopy nung mga document na binalik sa akin (bakit di humingi ng photocopy nun? MC ko lang at formal obligation hiningi eh)

Baka isipin nila KULANG documents ko ( complete orig and photocopies were with me during my interview)

ayun natatakot lang ako kasi pinaghandaan talaga namin to dahil amost 5 times na siya napunta dito simula nung niligawan,naging kami at kinasal kami (all happened within a year) ako naman daw sana ang pumunta dun at alamin ang buhay niya kahit saglit dahil ayaw pa ako ibigay ng parents ko hanggat walang diploma para walang masabi inlaws ko.

Hay, ano kaya sa tingin nyo kapalaran ko, nakakapraning man isipin pero ngayon pa lang iniisip ko na paano magappeal kung saka sakali .

BTW, ito pala mga tinanong sakin sa embassy

1. San kayo nagkakilala ng husband mo? answer : sa facebook po

2. Gaano na siya kadami pumunta dito? answer, Mga apat o lima, Lima po

3. wala ka bang balak samahan asawa mo duon sa germany? Answer: orders niya lang po yun at aalis din siya dun, nasa proseso padin ako ng pagtapos ng bachelor's ko kaya wala talaga kaming plano na magmigrate ako (base to sa reasons ng parents ko na ayaw pa nila ako ibigay hanggat hindi pa ako tapos). Nakaterm break lang po ako at gusto ko lang bumisita.


ano po palang courier ang magdedeliver ng passport at iaadvise ka ba nila na idedeliver na yung passport sayo? or nganga lang po at voila, nasa pinto mo na? baka po kasi wala ako sa bahay (im renting my own place) at baka magkasalisi.

SALAMAT PO SA MGA MAGBABASA AT MAKAKATULONG. 2 to 3 days lang pero parang mababaliw ako.

NYSAH 3 years ago

I have a question, and I hope anyone out there has an idea if my idea is possible ^_^ so im planning to go to Bosnia & Herzegovina, another Euro country but isn't listed on the countries listed above that comprises the Schengen visa territories.. So, I was thinkin of goin to either Austria, Germany, or Hungary (preferrably Austria) where there is a Bosnia embassy in the said countries.. I'll first apply for a Schengen visa to go to any of those countries then go to a Bosnian embassy in that country to get a Bosnian visa to enter Bosnia.. My boyfriend lives and is from Bosnia and has a relative in Austria.. he can go there to come see me in Austria first, then we'll go to Bosnia together after I apply a Bosnia visa there, if possible.. (** our 1st option was to go to Malaysia where there is a Bosnian embassy there so i can apply for just a Bosnian visa alone, but I don't know anyone in Malaysia and its an added expense for the hotel stay there and all that stuff, so we're finding other possible means.. **) sooo yea, is it possible to get a Schengen visa first to enter Austria, then go to a Bosnian embassy to get a Bosnian visa? MANY THANKS :)

Aly 3 years ago

Hi I'd like to ask lang about Schengen Visa in the Spanish embassy. I'm quite worried lang that they won't approve my visa cause they'd think that I don't have enough financial support. I will be going to Spain to visit my boyfriend, he will be my sponsor since I will be living with him. However, I'm still in university (3rd year). So, I still don't have any income. But I have enough savings (around 100,000 php) for my 2 weeks travel. I think it's more than enough since when I get there, my lodging and other expenses will be free. But, I have no proof to show the embassy that I have enough money. I only have cash because some of it are remains from my parents' gift and also my allowance. I can't tell my parents to give me their bank statements and all because they don't even know that I'm applying for this in the first place, because for sure they won't agree. The only way for them to allow me is if I already have everything fixed. On the other hand, my boyfriend doesn't have any income too cause he just graduated.

So can you give me any advice on how to make my application more legit? Maybe i could show them my cash on hand or something? Please reply.

hi! i just wanna ask. we are applying for a tourist visa for a training in Barcelona, Spain. We filed our complete application with the VFS and we were scheduled for interview by the Spain Consulate the next day. During the interview, the consul ask basic questions like:

1. what company do I work - I stated the name of our company

2. how long have I been working in the company - I said 3 years

3. what is the nature of business of the company - I said BPO (business process outsourcing)

4. how long will I stay in Spain - I said 3 months

5. are you travelling alone - I said I'm with my other co-employee to travel

Then, she went out and ask us to be sitted and when she returns back she advised us that we should get a work visa under "TPS" category and she provided us copy of the process on how to apply for work visa. We told her that we are for training purpose only in Spain. She said even if it's for training purpose only since its categorize under "TPS" (does BPO should be under this category? and what is TPS?)

My concern, should we really apply for a work visa though our purpose of visit in Spain is for a training only?

Can you advise on what to do?

thanks, awaiting for your soonest reply.

First I want to say thank you that I have come to know this website.

Many useful tips and information.

I am planning to apply for a Schengen Visa-Spain this coming September. I'm currently working.

I have some questions in my mind too.

1.Dapat po ba talaga confirmed(paid already) yung itinerary na submit mo?What if na denied ka? Eh di sayang po yung confirmed itinerary.

2.Ok lang po if di ko ma sali as one of the supporting documents si ITR? Kasi I have tried asking our HR about this and they tell me that ITR's will be released next year.

3.Also, ok lang po na mag apply ako ng visa kahit d pa regular sa work?

4.Lastly, I do not understand what Travel insurance is. San po ba to makukuha?

Thanks in advance!

I'm a Filipino Citizen and I'm planning on getting a Schengen Visa for Italy. I'm currently a college student and I have a boyfriend in the US Military who is going to be stationed in Italy. He will be the one to invite me over once he gets there. The problem is that I don't have a bank account and I am no longer a minor, but I am fully supported by my parents financially.

-Can I use their bank account SOA, Certification, ITR and updated passbook as my proof of financial capacity?

-Do I need an Affidavit of Support? (I am no longer a minor so what would I need to submit to prove that I am supported by my parents?)

-I don't need to provide hotel accommodation vouchers since I will be staying at my boyfriend's place, right?

-How much is the travel insurance?

Thank you for any information you can provide.

I'm a ladyboy from the Philippines. I have a french bf and we met last November 2012. He visited here in the philippines last April 2013 after 5 months of consistent chatting via skype. So, we've been together for 1 month in Manila and travel to Macau, Hongkong and China. We visited Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar. He planned to let me visit in France next year and apply visa (Tourist/Schengen visa). I resigned from my recent job where I worked for 5 years in my previous company. He'll be the one to provide my board and lodging and I will shoulder the flight tickets. I am concern if the french embassy would consider and will approve my visa even though I got no job and will consider my travel abroad? I have documents aside from employment coz I am unemployed. Do you think they would consider it. And since I am a ladyboy are they going to deny my visa if in case because of my sexual preference. I'm looking forward to hear from you..God bless,,

Hi to every one! I'm a Filipina. I would like to share my own experienced. Every one of us has different cases or type of papers.

Year 2010 i was apply a tourist visa, my fiancée is a German Citizen and we knew through each other in internet, he was invited me to visit him in Germany. But my Visa was denied. Even though i passed all my documents and he visit me once a year in the Philippines. They denied my tourist visa because they're afraid i will not comeback anymore the Philippines and using Germany as an exit (TNT) country to going to other countries (For Example: not EU countries)

Every years has some new Law in EU, in a bit difficult. I informed myself very well to gather information in Internet . And my fiancée informed himself too, and we worked hand in hand with heartily prayers.

After my Tourist Visa denied I went to Manila to Learn German Language. After that i took a German examination and I passed A1. After 1 year, we process again to apply a new visa but not a tourist visa anymore. A Fiancée Visa, but not so easy, still so many processing papers, and they check my background there in the Philippines.

Some neighborhood told to me somebody interviewed them from German Embassy.

After 8 months i got my fiancée visa, and we married here in Germany. I'm still studying here in Germany. I continue my German language and study a new course here. Because sad to say our education there is not worth here, because they are in advance in School and Different School System.

Hope is helpful.

Is it possible if my German BF accompany me to the German embassy instead of us submitting documents as a proof of his residence in Germany and Letter of invitation? We plan to go to to embassy together in Manila and I would like to know if there will be changes with requirements needed. I hope you can help me with this as I can't find any articles related to this.


Ku 2 years ago

I think you need letter of invitation and proof of his residence in Germany even though he will go with you in the German Embassy Manila. Those are main papers. And please read again the requirements in the website of German Embassy.

Kaizer 2 years ago

Hi Ku,

I was revisiting the checklist and I think you are right.

I have another question though, he's travelling right now and will be back in Germany after My visa application. With this, is there a way that he can provide formal obligation while he is outside Germany?

albert 2 years ago

hi... first time ko mag apply ng schegen visa at may appointment na ako sa 27 of march. question ko lang may parents are retired from monaco (35 years) meron na silang monthly pension came from gov. of monaco. prior to that may father was being heart bypassed in monaco, to make long story short, gusto nila bumalik sa monaco para mag pa check ulit sa nag opera sa kanya. kailangan pa ba namin ng mga iterenary since our purpose to go back in monaco is health concern? and do we really need hotel accommodation since alam naman ng parents ko lahat lahat ng mga hotel sa monaco? at kailangan pa rin ba ng travel insurance?

Ku 2 years ago

Hi Kaizer,

Sorry I don't have idea if the Ausländeramt (DFA in Germany) can provide the formal obligation while your BF is outside in Germany.

As far as i knew they needs Personal appearance of a person or a host who wants to invite anybody. That is good that he will go with you in German Embassy so that he can ask more information and another points to your Visa Application.

Through my experienced, my first Visa denied and my second Visa was succeed.

kaizer 2 years ago

hi Ku,

Thanks for the heads up though. I saw in one website that he needs to visit their local government to request for formal obligation. He'll be back in Germany this April or May. and he wants me to visit there June or July. With that short period of time, Can I schedule my date of interview one month my plan of leaving the country? I have work din kasi here so June or July lang allowed na leave ko ng company.

did you have same visa application on your 1st and 2nd?

Ku 2 years ago

Hi Kaizer,

Your BF will ask first to their local government / Ausländeramt

what are the requirements he needs to invite you. After that they will give a form to fill in, they will ask him which month he would like to invite you, and he can tell the exact month because they will write that in formal obligation. Make sure you have a complete papers to set for a visa appointment. They suggest 3 months before your plan leaving the country.

1st visa.

Hi Jaulie,

I have read in some forums that financial stability is not enough for the visa to approved. They need a guarantee that you have plans of returning to your mother country and not use Germany to exit in other countries. Im no expert about this but you can give it a try. German embassy in Manila is a bit disorganize according to reviews.

I think you can tell your fiancée to send an email to their local embassy in Germany regarding this matter. Did they tell you the reason why your application was denied?I think you can request for reconcideration.

I just want to ask if its possible for me to get schengen visa for germany after 2 refusal. First was last year and second is just this april. I was invited by my bf, a german national. He sent me invitation, insurance, formal obligation and the copy of his passport and visa. I have submitted my birth certificate, our exchange of emails and greetings, skype conversations, trip receipts and photos when he visited me here last year. I even submitted receipts of monetary support from him. Im not employed right now and i had open my small business at home but i had my DTI permit which i got last February of this year. What are we missing for me get a visa. He invited me last year to experience the winter, and this last refusal for me to experience spring and of course for me to introduce and get to know german culture

Hope you could advice me what we must do next time. Thank you.

Hi Reigh,

Referring to the above mentioned countries, Morocco is not included on the Schengen countries which means you have to undergo proper application.

Kaizer 2 years ago

hi Dreizehn,

was it tough? Im planning to have my first application this May too and I am a bit nervous about it. I have the same situation though.

I think German embassy looks more on the the possibility of you coming back to the country in which either you are employed of or own land titles here in the Phil. if you own a business, they would look into the Monthly income you are getting from it and since you just opened it last Feb, I think the embassy thought you had just for the sake of applying visa as it is one of the requirements. They have no questions of how you are going to support your stay there.They just need a guarantee that you will go back in the Phil.

Ps. these are just my opinions.

laska 2 years ago

Hi Sherie,

Your recent German boyfriend visited you already in your country? Case to case basis. They're not only looking for your property or Land Title. It depends on your papers, interview and proof of communication you have.

By the way, how long you have a relationship to your recent German boyfriend? If that only a short time or months, that is question mark.

laska 2 years ago

I think already one of the requirements : he will shoulder your stay there because he is the one who inviting you. Beside of that you must follow the requirements of the embassy and have an interview. And wait the result. Because they make difficult now here in Europe to give a visa. Not only in Europe even though Canada and America. You cannot easy anymore to get a visa, because some reasons: They don't want be overpopulated, human trafficking, and illegal stay, over stay, using the other countries exit, they don't comeback their own country.

Hi, I'm a frequent traveller and I would just like to make a comment on your post re: Schengen Visa.

First of all, it is not advisable to purchase your ticket before obtaining a visa because this does not guarantee your approval. I have encountered people who tried to do this but they failed anyway.

Second, yes there is no interview required for the Italian Embassy, however, you can not just apply in the Italian Embassy just because, especially if Italy is not part of your itinerary.

I have a friend who applied in the French Embassy because it has been said to be the easiest embassy to apply to even though her only destination was Germany. She wasn't able to show any proof of an onwards trip to France, that's why she was not allowed by the immigration to enter Germany (Frankfurt Airport) at all and has been banned to enter Europe for a year.

There are two factors to be considered, to check which Schengen embassy should you apply to.

1. The country in which you'll be staying the longest. (Example: 3 days in France, 4 days in Italy, 1 week in Germany - in this sample itinerary, you must apply in the German Embassy as you will be staying in Germany the longest)

2. If your stay in each country will be of the same length (ex. 3 days each in Italy, France, Germany) you will apply in the country of first entry. So based on the sample itinerary, you should apply in the Italian Embassy since your first entry will be in Italy.

I hope this comment finds you well. Thanks :)

That's good. Only a suggestions: You can follow all the requirements of German Embassy but on your round trip ticket and health insurance only a reservation. Because some papers are not guarantee that they will grant your visa. If you have a visa, your boyfriend can pay your round trip ticket and your health insurance.

Hi there! Im scheduled for an interview with the French Embassy on Friday. I have all the documents I need except for the Bank Certification, well, technically, I have a bank certification but it is dated August 1, 2014 because I was initially scheduled for August 5, unfortunately, I had to move my schedule to August 20 because I had to leave for another business trip. This isn't the first time Im applying for a Schengen Visa but my last visa was at the Austrian Embassy (where there are friendlier staff). Will the date when I got the bank certification matter? I do have other supporting docs like an UPdated Passbook and Credit Card Billing Statements. The website only said recent bank certification (at least 3 months), so I kinda assumed August 1, 2014 will be okay since it's within the 3 month period. I've been so busy with work so I kinda forgot to request for a new one. Will this be a dealbreaker for them?

I think one of the requirements is that you should have met each other in person. Also a COE is needed when you apply. if you have resigned, how would you produce this document? you need proof that you are still coming back.

Hi ! I'm Filipino and i work in Palawan as a guide. I have french girlfriend, and she told me to come and visit her in france. She will shoulder the cost for flight ticket. If i have ticket for like June 20,2015, would beginning of June be enough to make appointment for visa application? I also don't have ITR as the company I work at is only casual, and I don't pay for that. Is it ok just to have proof that I work at this company?

i haven't been outside my country yet, but i have valid passport. I'm 22 and my girlfriend is 23. I also don't have 6 digit in my bank account, only 5 digits.

Can you get a Schengen Visa that is valid longer than 1 year? Just like in UK, you can apply for 5 years. In USA, you can be granted for 10 years. In Canada, you can apply for the duration of the validity of your passport. These are multiple tourist visa. Can Schengen Visa also be issued for longer duration? i had a couple of old visas like France, Netherlands, and Italy but in all occasions i have to re-apply for a visa since the visits were not all in one trip. I don't stay longer than 90 days (normally for just 1 week).

Good pm!

This is what I've looking for.

Can I ask u a question.

I applied for a work in Switzerland and that work is my firstjob ever as a nanny for 6months only.

And the host family told me that I need to have a tourist visa only, bec we are going to make tour in other european country every month. Not a working visa.

What would I do?

I just read a lot of requirements about employment and bank account and most of all the itirenary for tour.

I want to go in Switzerland as soon as possible.

But the host family said that I need only a tourist visa. I dont know them very well, I just applied sa mapag kakatiwalaang website thats why im pretty sure na legit yung family na papasukan ko. And we need to conduct an online interview.

Makakaalis kaya ako ng bansa?

By October they need me as nanny.

I hope you can help me pls.

Jane 17 months ago


1 year pa lang naman ako dito sa Germany pero base sa experiences ng mga friends ko. Hindi imposibleng makapunta ka dito. Kasi pag may sponsor ka naman may chance ka makakuha ng visa.

Provide mo lang ang mga requirements na hinihingi nila sa Embassy. Mas may chance ka din kung may asawa ka sa pinas or anak diyam sa Pins kasi malaking proof yan na babalik ka. Depende din yan paano mo handle yung interview. Wag kang kakabahan.

Hi! I'm a filipina I just want to ask something cause im really having a hard time and confused what to do to get a visa and the requirements because i just got married last month in hongkong to an austrian guy and yes my question is do I need to bring my marriage contract, nbi and birth certificate (with red ribbon from dfa and legalize by the embassy) do I need to bring those three documents too when applying for visa to austria. I hope you can help me . Thankyou so much
