I am from India. I applied for a Schengen visa from france with my wife for a short stay tourist visa. And the visa got refused. The reason they gave me was "The information submitted regarding the justification for the purpose and conditions of the intended stay was not reliable". We provided all the documents required for the visa. My wife is a government employees and I own a business.
After one month of visa rejection I re applied it by myself. This time i was travelling alone. I applied from france embassy. I planned to stay 8 days in Paris and 5 days in spain.
I provided all the relevant documents for the visa, including my tax return for the last 3 years with acknowledgement, return flight tickets, confirmed hotel bookings, last 6 months bank statement with balance of 11,600$, bank statement of my business account, credit card statements, cover letter with proper day to day itinerary, papers of valuation of my personal property(123702$) and my father's property (309256$) as i am his only son with latest electricity bills, spouse NOC with attached copy of marriage certificate and her passport, paper of my business registration, confirmed tickets of euro rail, copies of my investments (mutual funds), travel insurance etc. And i applied 40 days before my travel.
They still refused my visa with the same reason which is really disappointing for me. I have also travelled to Singapore and Indonesia with my wife last year.
I can't understand why are they refusing may visa. Please help me with this.
