Having a "sponsor" for a visitor visa application helps in only these two cases: The plans for your trip that you present in the applications say you will stay in someone's home rather than in commercial accommodation such as a hotel. In that case the ECO needs to see proof that the people you're going to stay with are cool with that plan (and, in the case ...

The number of countries within Schengen that you're visiting is not really relevant. Your application will be assessed by the processing country's consulate (Hungary) based on whether you have a legitimate reason to visit, sufficient funding to cover your expenses, a reason to return home etc. They will not be involving the other countries on your ...

Maybe. Maybe not. The UK wants to be convinced that the visitor will leave again. If it is unclear how the visitor can afford the trip, there is the suspicion that he or she has taken on debt that will be repaid by working illegally in the UK. A sponsor helps to clarify how the visitor can afford the trip. If the visitor has few connections to his or her ...

However, a new requirement has been added to this list in recent times and that is documentary evidence that you have sufficient reasons to return to your country. There is no such recent change to the entry conditions in the Schengen Borders Code. The legal requirement is, exactly as it was in 2017, that you "justify the purpose and conditions of the ...

For the Schengen countries you do not need an invitation, but you need to show you have enough money and a good reason to return home, and Norway, Greece and Switzerland are all Schengen countries. The money is not a given amount but showing that you get in enough money more than you need for your life at home that you can afford to spend it on travel. Good ...

The maximum duration of the visa's validity is ten years or until one month before the expiration of your passport, whichever is shorter. The maximum duration of each visit is usually six months, but the passport must be valid for the entire duration of your visit.

My family (2 adults and 2 kids under 6) was just denied boarding at the gate because of this Visa thing with Ryanair. The airport is Eindhoven. We hold American passports and are residents of the Netherlands. They didn't care. The gate person said this was just policy. They happily went through the effort to remove our 5 bags from the flight and ...

VFS Global provided an update today with a helpful infographic on when applicants may visit a premium application centre. Presumably they will keep updating the schedule in the above mentioned link until normal operations are restored at USCIS application centers.

No, it explicitely says Valid visa, or variant on the e-visa page of Tr (https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/prerequisites/). Therefore, I'd argue an expired Schengen visa won't work and you shouldn't attempt it.

There is definitely a risk attached to trying to use a short-term study visa granted for a specific internship to enter the UK as a visitor to attend a totally unconnected conference. Immigration Rule 321A (1) provides that a person’s leave to enter may be cancelled at port or while the holder is outside the UK if there has been a change in circumstances ...

See 9 FAM 403.9-3(B) for passport validity requirements for issuing a nonimmigrant visa. For passports from countries in the "6-month club", it says that a visa can be issued at any time until the expiration date, though it does mention that if it's too close to expiration it "might not be practical" (9 FAM 403.9-3(B)(2)(b)): As passports issued by the ...

As I think you know, and as detailed in other questions, sterile international transit is not possible via the United States. Even if you are getting on a plane out of the country as soon as you arrive, you must still go through immigration and customs screening to enter the U.S. The U.S. Visa Waiver Program is based on citizenship, and Colombia is not a VWP ...

A letter of invitation is not mandatory - if you don’t have personal connections in Canada then you can’t supply one. What is necessary, in common with visitor visas to pretty much any destination, is being able to convince an immigration officer that you have ties—such as a job, home, financial assets or family—that will take you back to your home country ...

A Schengen visa authorizes you to travel anywhere in the Schengen area, within the dates and length-of-stay restrictions printed on it. If you go and do something wildly different from what you claimed in your visa application you wanted to do, and authorities find out about that, they might end up concluding that your visa application was a lie even when ...

No, it’s unlikely a solvency statement will suffice. UKVI are interested in more than just your bank balance, as explained here Should I submit bank statements when applying for a UK Visa? What do they say about me?

You need a visa, because you will have to cross Thai immigration to enter at Chiang Mai and take the domestic flight to Bangkok. You can get a visa on arrival for a stay of up to 15 days, but to ensure that you don't have any problems at the airline and to go faster through immigration, I recommend you get an e-visa in advance from the official Thai e-visa ...
