I am a college student currently residing in Chennai, India. I was planning to attend a 5-day business conference being held in Germany in mid-March.My travel itinerary also included a 2-day detour to Brussels before the conference. I have booked the flight tickets to Brussels and the train ticket from Brussels to Cologne. I have also booked and paid for my stay in Brussels and Germany.
The first time my visa got cancelled I had around 450 euros in my account. The reason given was a lack of subsistence. Therefore, I roped in my brother as the sponsor. He has around 2200 euros in his account. Along with my application, I attached the sponsor letter, my brother's pay slip and his income tax returns. But they have again rejected my application citing the same reason.
The embassy says that that around 45 euro/day will suffice.Therefore, I am dumbfounded by these rejections and would really grateful if somebody can answer the following questions:
- What should be the adequate amount considering the fact that I will be staying in Europe for 8 days and accommodation is already paid for?
- How much will this dual rejection impact my chances of getting a visa in future?
@Gayot Fow A single field was checked in both the applications and it reads as follows:
You have not provided proof of sufficient means of subsistence, for the duration of the intended stay or for the return to the country of origin or residence, or for the transit to a third country into which you are certain to be admitted, or you are not in a position to acquire such means lawfully.
