    Did you actually submit hotel reservations for the whole of your trip?
    What company did you use to book your hotel?
    How long was your stay in Holland?
    Please answer these questions so that I may advise you better.

    To appeal could take weeks or months to obtain an answer.
    I suggest you reapply but this time book through a travel agent and obtain a travel itinerary and a confirmed reservation.

  • @sumit0010
    You state your UK visa will expire in October. If this was a visit visa you probably will not be issued a UK so quickly after this visa expired.
    Isuggest you apply to the Netherlands again. Going to other embassies is frowned upon its known as "visa shopping". If you go to another embassy you need to change your travel plans completly.

  • My name is Syed Waqar Abbas Shah, I have been refused a Schengen visa from Netherlands Embassy Islamabad for my family including my wife and two Sons (under 10 year old). I have a good traveling history of Europe and was resident of UK on student visa with my wife and son from 2003 till 2009. I have also got US visa and also obtained Schengen visa from Netherlands in past. I have a good carrier in Pakistan as currently serving in Parliament of Pakistan on a very good post with very handsome income. I had submitted below mention document to Netherlands Embassy.
    1. Bank statement of more than 10,000 US dollar in Pak. Rupees
    2. Pay slips from my employer for more than 1500 US, per month in Pak. Rupees .
    3. Letter from my Employer stating my regular and permanent job.
    4. Tax certificate.
    5. Ticket confirmation from travel agent.
    6. Hotel booking from booking. Com for 9 nights.
    7. Invitation letter from my cousin in Norway stating thay I with my family will stay in Norway for 4 days after my stay in Netherlands.
    8. Travel Insurance.
    9. Letter from school for winter vacation and some more supporting documents.

    Netherlands embassy refused while stating two grounds.
    1. That the hotel accommodation mentioned in from dose not substantiate with the documents.
    2. That I may stay in Netherlands as the situation of Pakistan is not satisfactory.
    For the reason 1 I had already attached the confirmed booking of the Hotel which has been overlooked by the visa officer. After the refusal I called the hotel and they replied that there are no issues with the hotel booking.
    For the reason 2. I have very strong ties with Pakistan because of my permanent public Sector job and excellent carrier growth.
    The Embassy has given me the rite of appeal.

    I am thinking of appealing against the decision the only issue is that the appeal procedure might take some time and I was planning to travel from 25 December 2016.
    The other thing came in to my mind that I may postpone my plan till summer vacations of my children and go in to appeal by submitting new eternity of ticket and confirmation from hotel with new travel insurance.
    Kindly guide.
