Visa refusal on sports criterion
We, a well reputed cricket club in sri lanka, applied for schengen sports visa for our 24 members through Switzerland embassy in sri llanka. We got the invitation for playing one day matches from three different countries - belgium, france and spain. But the visa got rejected for the following reasons.
1. You have not provided proof of sufficient means of subsistence, for the duration of the intended stay or for the return to the country of origin or residence.( note: we attached the bank statement of our sports club with the balance of above 10 million)
2. Your intention to leave the territory of the member states before the expiry of the visa could not be ascertained.
Please suggest what our next step could be. Is it a appeal or a reapply. And what are the documents required to get rid of the above mentioned comments.
Please help us. We value your comments.
Thank you. Waiting for your reply.
