This is supposed to be the first time I travel, I was pretty much excited and confident in my Application, I have zero intention to overstay or break any laws.
I applied for a Schengen visa on 14th of August at TLScontact center in cairo, Planning to attend a conference in Freiburg, Germany https://smashingconf.com
on the 11th-12th September 2017 on Web Design. Flight is on 9th of September.
I got my refusal letter today 20th of August.
My Application documents were all in order and Complete: (Egyptian, 28 years)
Round trip flight booked and fully paid for.
Hotel reservation confirmed and non-refundable.
Conference Ticket, invoice and confirmation letter from SmashingConf.
Train (DB) reservation to and from Amsterdam after the conference paid for.
Hostel Reservation in Amsterdam and Hamburg, Berlin after amsterdam confirmed.
College certificate (3rd year civil engineering) one year left to finish college.
Trip Itinerary with scheduled dates and a brief introduction on the purpose of travel.
Two bank statements one in EGP and the other in USD
Relatively big stocks portfolio (parent's) with an original special power of attorney that I can sell, purchase and exchange coupons.
Reason in refusal letter:
9. Your intention to leave the territory of the Member States before the expiry of the visa applied for could not be ascertained.
a) Application doesn't provide documents to prove Financial and economical ties
aa) Insufficient documents to prove financial ties to Egypt
ac) Insufficient Data to prove family and social ties to Egypt
Should I appeal? What kind of documents could support my appeal? I work part-time (consultation agreement) as an Web Designer as I'm still studying Civil Engineering (have been in college for 10 years) but I suffer from ADHD and have struggled to finally reach the Last Year which starts in a month.
I don't know why my college enrollment certification was not enough for them?
I only have 19 days before my flight, What should I do? Appeal or re-apply? or do both? or give up?
Please if anyone has any experience let me know, I would really appreciate any advice.
Thank you very much!@Alethia
please give me some input if you had time.
