Schengen Visa while changing jobs?

Jump to last reply

Hi fellow travellers,
I wanted to take a week off while changing jobs to visit Europe. I'm planning on a solo trip with Germany as my main destination.

The German consulate states this as one of the requirements:
"-reference letter from your employer"

Will a letter from my next employer stating that I will be starting work with them on my return be sufficient for this purpose?

I know a lot of the schengen countries explicitly state that your letter should state that the vacation for the duration of the trip has been approved and that you will be resuming working with them once you return.

Has anyone been in the same situation before?

I'm an Indian citizen on an H1B visa, working in the US.

Thanks in advance.
