Difficulty with Schengen visa.

Jump to last reply

My wife is from Asia and is a legal US resident (but not yet a US citizen) so she has to get a Schengen visa to visit France. Our first stop is London, so I had to send her passport to the UK consulate for a separate UK visa. That was a fairly simple procedure; they just required proof that I had some money, a job and some property. Two weeks later she has her UK visa.

Then we went to the French consulate with the papers I used to get a UK visa. But they said I also had to have an itinerary, hotel reservations and health insurance. So we went and gathered these documents, but when we came back, they now they say I need airplane tickets, prepaid hotels and purchase yet more health insurance. Also my company won't write a letter saying I'll still have a job when I return from vacation.

It just all got to be too much. I gave up. Now our vacation will just be UK and Ireland. You would think that the European countries would make things a little easier for US residents.
