My 47 year old friend who is employed with a reputed organization has a weird problem. Her office HR does not easily give NOC for foreign travel. She is a pretty senior personality in her organization and has a travelled to Asian countries and Russia but never to Europe.
Can she attach a letter explaining her intent to return? She will also be submitting her 3 year tax return, bank account statements and an invitation letter from her niece who is living in Germany. Will this be sufficient to obtain a tourist visa? She is also buying return tickets. In short ever other document can be provided except for no objection certificate from her employer. Any help here would be appreciated.
