My case is very simple and straightforward. I applied for my Schengen Visa and got it on 10 October 18, for traveling to Italy on 13 December 2018 without Interview. My family showed interest later to join me. Therefore, I put forward their applications as well, by attaching my issued visa copy.
Very next day I got an email and call to come to Consulate for interview with my family to sign the Children authorization letter in front of Visa Officer. When we reached the Consulate, they started asking question about my visa instead of my family visa application. They try to prove that I got the visa with false intention, planning to not leave the Schengen territory after my visit and told me you are not going to Italy. They later put an annulled stamp on the visa page of my passport.
Visa officer believed that you got visa yourself and now you are asking visa for your family so you are planning to run away. Even though I have a 15 year old executive job with Gratuity, 2 school kids, and own house in Dubai.
I am not interested in leaving my current executive job and migrate illegally to do odd jobs in Europe in the age of 40.
Furthermore, when I tried to withdraw my family application from Consulate, they refused to withdraw as well.
So consider these facts before applying the visa in Italian Consulate in Dubai.
