We (my wife and parents-in-law) are taking a 14-day vacation in the Schengen countries. Right now, I am in the process of preparing all the required documents for the visa application (Schengen Tourist for 14 Days). In the checklist, one section states:
Applicants having no financial means of support must produce a letter from their sponsor confirming the commitment of full financial support for the applicant for all his/her expenses during the stay in France and the Schengen zone. A photocopy of the sponsor passport and sponsor last three months personal bank statements must be provided."
This is applies to my wife and mother-in-law who are housewives and not working. Questions are:
- Can I (IT professional) support my wife ?
- Can my father-in-law (retired) support my mother-in-law?
Note: Both of us can provide all the necessary support letters and documentation (passport copies, bank statements with sufficient funds etc.).
