I am an Indian national. I am planning to apply for 3 days visit visa for Belgium. The visit purpose is a Job Interview. Employer will reimburse the cost of air tickets, Taxis and accommodation. But initially I have to pay for all. I have already made booking for return air tickets, accommodation myself.
As per visa guidelines I need to show means of subsistence. I do not keep money in my bank account. I am employed in India. I pay home loans, car loans and whatever is left, I invest in Equity Mutual funds. Thus after 15 of every month I am left with very little money in my account. Current value of my mutual funds investment is about Rs.300000 (About 4000 euro).
Is it must to have money in Bank account? Can I show investments as a proof of subsistence? If required I can liquidate part of my investment in 1-2 days time. But I do not want to unless necessary.
Can I show my credit card also? I am aware according to visa guidelines I need daily approx. 50 euro. Thus I would need to show at least 150 euros.
