    QUESTIONS QUESTIONS

    What earlier days can I apply for a Greek Visa interview?

    3 months earlier than the planned journey.

    Greek Visa Interview Questions

    It depends, but you’re often asked to whom to travel, why you’re traveling to Greece, why you’re touring to a different Schengen nation or non-Schengen country and why you selected that nation. Ensure you know the small print of your itinerary because the Consul will ask you. The consul browsed our documents by interviewing us and asked us questions based mostly on the paperwork. We have been asked about our work, how a lot we deserve and how we will ebook a trip. It was an easy interview, it was pleasant and we obtained numerous consular from Greece. The consul is aware of his country heartily, in our case, he even steered places we should always visit.

    Reply with confidence, honesty and respect. Don't be nervous and don't be nervous.

    How a lot money ought to I’ve in the financial institution?

    I don't know for positive and no one is aware of. Nevertheless it must be enough to cowl the costs all through the trip. The Greek Embassy requires € 50 (€ Three,313.86) per individual / day for price range / pocket cash and a minimal of € 300 (PHP 19, 163.15) for up to 5 days of keep. 60 (PHP 3 840) per day. In addition, you’re sending flight reservations and lodge reservations that haven’t but been paid, so you have to embrace it in your finances.

    Ensure you again up your financial ties with the Philippines. want proof of satisfactory means of subsistence all through the trip and proof that you are legally acquiring these funds (eg by way of employment or business) and returning to the Philippines. So, when you’ve got a lot of money in your checking account, it really doesn't assure that Greece Visa will settle for. Additionally they consider monetary ties with the Philippines, they need to determine whether or not you might have a constant source of revenue. So in case you are new to your job, your small business or just just lately resigned, you must prove to them that you are returning to the Philippines.

    Can I present other paperwork not listed above?

    You possibly can attempt, in any other case they’ll return it to you if it isn’t wanted.

    As I mentioned above, there isn’t a want yet. You possibly can contact or go to the journey agency and request flight reservations. They’re often charged a minimal amount. For instance, in your travels you fly to a Schengen state or to a non-Schengen nation, you need to embrace a flight reservation right here.

    Ought to I apply for one, two or more entry visas?

    In case you apply for a Greek visa, you should decide what you need – whether or not it is a one-piece Greece Schengen visa, a double entry for Greece Schengen visa or a multiple entry into Greece for a Schengen visa?

    DETAILED GREECE VISA / SCHENGEN VISA:

    • Should you intend to remain only in Greece or Portugal, then you definitely want one entry for a Greek Schengen visa.
    • In the event you intend to go to different Schengen nations, you’ll be able to apply for a Greek Schengen visa, however make it possible for flights to other Schengen nations don’t require you. In the state and you need to return to Schengen after that, it’s essential to apply for a Greek Schengen double entry visa.

      MULTIFUNCTION GREECE VISA / SCHENGEN VISA:

      For those who plan to fly to and from Schengen a number of occasions, apply for a Greek Schengen visa.

      How lengthy is the Schengen visa valid for Greece?

      It depends upon the itinerary you’re sending. So be sure to plan your route properly and realize it from your heart as a result of the Greek Embassy is establishing the visa length on your itinerary. We introduced a 22-day route that included another Schengen country. In order we fly from one other Schengen nation from Greece, we also delivered flight reservations between each nations. We have been granted a 22-day visa, but the validity interval is about one and a half months just before the passport is valid (at the least 6 months from the actual date of validity of the passport). It will depend on the season. We used off-season, some months could also be extra vigorous.

      How long will the complete visa software final?

      27. October – We requested for a visa by e mail

      28. October – We acquired an e mail informing us concerning the earliest schedule on December fifth.

      15. December – We require our visa and passport.

      How lengthy does it take to release a Greek visa?

      About 7 to 14 enterprise days. We acquired after 7 working days

      How does the Greek Schengen visa seem like?

       GREECE TOURIST VISA

      Why is my software rejected?

      Your intention to go away the Schengen space earlier than the expiry date of the visa could not be established. The attainable purpose for that is that there is not enough evidence of employment, or that there’s not enough proof of ties with the Philippines. Perhaps you will have simply been lately recruited, lately divorced or haven’t any secure job, so it appears there isn’t a assure that you will return to the Philippines or you’ll keep longer than you introduced.

      You have not offered proof of enough means of subsistence during your keep or return to your nation of origin or residence, or for transit to a third nation the place you’re undoubtedly accepted, or in case you are unable to obtain such means legally. The potential cause for that is that your checking account doesn’t have the funds for or your guarantor isn’t in good financial standing. And even when you have enough money in your bank account to cowl the cost of the trip, however there’s not sufficient evidence to point out the origin of the funds to your bank account. The reported wages or your corporation revenue will not be adequate for funds in financial institution accounts which will trigger purple flags.

      You don't know your journey route from your coronary heart, you give the impression you don't know what you’re doing throughout your trip, which can increase extra questions.

      You could have been abusing a earlier Schengen visa. The potential cause for this is that you’ve been crossing or have been working with a Schengen visa (paid or unpaid).

      Keep in mind that buying visas is forbidden in the Schengen States. This is what you probably did whenever you denied an embassy where you tried to use for a Schengen visa, so that you tried to avoid this now and re-apply it to the Embassy / Consulate, and you’ve got created a route plan whose solely objective is to seek another embassy, ​​but you really travel to a different nation (where the visa was refused), not if you re-used the Schengen visa. This can be a form of fraud and ought to be prevented and may lead to the annulment of a visa if it is detected and, worse, you could have to deny entry to Europe, especially to the Schengen space.

      My Greek visa software was rejected, Can I do something?

      You’ll be able to try to apply for a change. You’ll be notified in writing of the rationale why it was rejected. The shape for refusing an software incorporates the required info on methods to attraction towards the decision.

      IMPORTANT: The only entry visa holder does not mechanically grant the holder the fitting to enter the Schengen space. Border control authorities or other competent authorities can examine the aim of the journey and whether or not the entry circumstances are fulfilled

      * I am not a visa professional, this is an workplace based mostly on my experience once I just lately visited the Greek Schengen visa. Verify the website of the Greek Embassy to make sure that every little thing is updated.
