  • Hi @neymar1991. I have split this into a new thread as it was unrelated to the previous conversation. I hope someone is able to help - but take note that "visa shopping" is frowned upon and will likely result in another refusal. You can't say no, because you have applied for a Shengen Visa before and that will be on record.

    All Schengen visa offices no matter which country they belong to are connected to VIS
    (vsa Information system) no matter what type of visa you apply for your past applications will appear. This is why biometrics are taken
    So if you say no to the question "have you applied for a Schengen visa before? " your new application can be refused on the grounds that you have witheld information i.e. you told a lie
