I am an Indian resident currently in Tokyo on work visa. I want to visit Berlin for 3-4 days for an interview. I have an invitation letter. As I understand, I need to apply for a Schengen visa. Will I have to ask my current employer for a No Objection Certificate?
The official list of required documents states only that you need a letter from your employer confirming the status of your employment. It does not have to say anything about your proposed travel, as an Indian NOC letter might. Such letters are not typically used outside India.
