I will be applying 1st time for tourist schengen visa to portugal from india. presently I have balance of euro 660 for stay for 5-8 days including hotel expense. Is it enough so that visa do not reject. Also I have income tax return for last 2 years and not 3 years. I do not have any financial support except my salary. I am doing govt job, will that affect my visa chances? I will applying on my own and without any help of agency as they charge heavily, does it decrease your chances to get visa?
Aliens must be in possession of the following amounts if they wish to enter or stay in Portugal:
- EUR 75 – for each entry
- EUR 40 – for each day spent on the territory
Aliens who are able to prove that their board and lodging are guaranteed for the duration of their stay may be exempted from paying the above amounts.
So if you have 600 euro (75 euro per day for 8 days) - you fulfil the requirement.
