I am an Indian passport holder and have very recently graduated from university (about 3 weeks ago). My thesis work has been accepted as a research paper at a top conference in Germany. I plan to attend the conference (in September) to present my work. Consequently, I am applying for the Schengen business visa.
I have already accepted a job from a well-known company in the US and will be joining them in November in the US or Canada. Meanwhile, I am interning at a startup in India. I am facing a dilemma regarding the documents I must submit to demonstrate my ties to my home country. I am planning to submit the following:
- Offer letter from the company based in the US.
- Letter from the startup mentioning that I am currently employed (as an intern).
- Leave letter from the startup for the period of stay.
Are these documents sufficient to demonstrate my intent to return after the conference? Also, my father is funding my trip. Will this be a problem? Any help would be much appreciated, as I have already registered for the conference, booked flights and hotels.
Just wanted to update. I got my visa!
