Schengen Visa app(Embassy of Italy, Houston, Texas) - Tips/advice?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

I am foreign national and a US permanent resident. So I need a Schengen Visa for my 5 week backpacking trip this summer to Spain, France and Italy. I will be spending the maximum amount of time in Italy. Hence I have chosen to apply for my Visa in the Italian Embassy in Houston, Texas.

I expect this process to be pretty straightforward as long as I have all the documents straight (my Green Card, my Indian passport, bank statements, letter from my University as I am a student, plane ticket reservation info, hotel reservations for the entire trip, etc.)

This questions is directed to non-US citizens of course. Can you please share your experience applying for a Schengen Visa in an Italian Embassy in the US? Was the process pretty smooth? Is there anything I need to watch out for? Appreciate your comments and advice.

Thanks
Nesan
