I am currently living in Chennai (India). I intend to visit Germany as an international exchange student from April - June 2015.
I applied for Schengen visa and provided my bank account details as the proof of subsistence. My bank account had Rs. 150,000 which as per the current exchange rate for euro translates to around 2200 euros. My stay in Germany is gonna be for 89 days.
My visa application has been rejected saying the inadequate means of subsistence. So I up my balance amount to 5500 Euros (I came to know for schengen visa to germany one should have 45euros/day). I want to know
- Procedure for reapplication
- What all should be submitted as the proof of subsistence
- No. of days in would take to get the visa under these circumstances.
PS: I would be paying rent (250Euros/month) from my account balance. Also the account balance i mentioned is what i have i booked the return flight tickets.
