I recived a rejection for my parents Belgium visit visa(60 days)-Shengen visa applied from VFS India and was sent to Belgium for further assessement.All necessary documents were submitted by me as mentioned by them in the checklist of their website.As per below reason we had shown to and fro flight tickets as well as accomodation was planned for them to live with me in my rented apartment in Belgium.The bank statements as shown had a balance above 3 lakhs.
Below is the refusal reason stated:
1)Insufficient means of subsistence, both for the duration of the intended stay and for the return to their country of origin or residence, or for the transit to a third country where you will be admitted with certainty, or to be in the position to acquire such means lawfully
2)Coverage is inadmissible: the guarantor does not have an unlimited residence in Belgium.
3)No or insufficient evidence of financial coverage for the stay
4)Insufficient financial resources to the submitted bank account to fund the travel and accommodation
5)Your intention to leave the territory of the Member State before the expiry of the visa could not be ascertained
There is a mention of either re applying else going for an appeal for annulment to Litigation office in Belgium.I hear as I called their office than an appeal takes a minimun of 1 year.
in such a case I am in a dilemma whether to re apply for belgium or apply as a tourist visa in Switzerland.Kindly advise.Belgium cases I hear are not very positive.
