I asked my father (British Citizen) if I could come to UK to visit him this coming Christmas, but he already made plans to travel to France. He did invite me along and told me to get a Schengen visa.
Sounds really appealing to me, but I’m not sure how do I apply for both visas. I’m Filipino and a student.
Do I apply for UK visa first, wait for the outcome, then apply for Schengen?
If my father is sponsoring me to get my UK visa, do we do the same process when I apply for my Schengen? Or I have to apply without sponsorship as I don’t have any relatives in France? If it’s the latter, is there a set amount of funds that I have to have when I apply for Schengen?
How do I provide proof of income if I’m a student and being financially supported by my parents? (Schengen)
My plan is to travel on 21 or 22 of December, first day of my university Christmas break, but my father’s flight to France is already booked for the 24th. Is it going to be a problem if I arrive in the UK, leave 2 days after then come back to UK after 7 days?
I’ve read that I have to provide proof of booked flight return tickets with travel itinerary when applying for Schengen, how do I do it if I have to go via UK first?
Everything is so complicated in my head, I feel like I should just forget about it. Any advice to make this a little less difficult is welcome. Thank you.
