Things To Consider If You’re Applying For a Schengen Visa
Since the beginning of 2018, the Schengen group countries have increased the Schengen security measures. A Schengen visa does not guarantee your right to enter the Schengen area. If you do not have explanatory documents to support your trip, the border police may not allow you to enter the country, even if you have a visa. Failure to meet the obligations for accommodation may result in the decision to deport the police forces. Therefore, even if your Schengen visa is approved, here are the points you should pay attention to especially at the border gates during your journey:
• You must present your passport with a valid visa at the border gate to which you will enter Germany. There are also documents that the border police may request:
• Keep your accommodation reservation document and your return flight ticket, in a place that is easily accessible.
• If you are traveling to Germany for commercial purposes and family visits, have your approved, stamped invitation letter with you.
• Have the documents that supports the fact that you are able to cover your expanses during you trip (cash, travel checks, passbook, international credit cards, etc.) with you.
• The same applies to people with a D visa. In the case of domestic security checks, the D visa holder may be required to submit documents supporting the reason for their stay in Germany.
