Schengen Visa Rejected 3 times - Visiting Girlfriend
My visa to visit Portugal got rejected 3 times. All those 3 times i mentioned that i am visiting my girlfriend who i met online.
all 3 times the rejection reasons were the same. number 8 and 9.
8. the information submitted regarding the justification for the purpose and conditions of the intended stay was not reliable.
9. your intention to leave the territory of the member states before the expiry of the visa could not be ascertained.
i Provided relationship proof. invitation letter from her, her passport, invitation letter from her parents and proof of her living address. summary of our skype, facebook and other conversations and screenshots of our video chats since the beginning. (2015 November) - she or her family was not sponsoring me.
as ties to sri lanka,
i was a full time employee in a digital marketing agency. (still i am) so i provided appointment letters, promotion letters, salary slips, EPF/ ETF proof, no objection letter, leave letter including my salary confirmation. and since some of the company transactions happened through my bank account, i also included detailed breakdown of them and got certified by the accounting firm that handles our accounts.
included the fixed deposit certificate
included the vehicle ownership certificate of the vehicle i own.
credit card limit confirmation letter
and also mentioned my parents depends on me since my brother is studying in australia(to verify that i included his visa details and his passport too )
as extra i also included my parent's assets with valuation.
idk what else i could possibly provide.
My question is,
I am hoping to apply again in end of April. will it be an issue if i apply as a tourist without mentioning my girl friend? also please let me know what more documents i should include.
