How much money do you need to verify for a Schengen Visa?

April 13, 2018

 

 

THE EXACT AMOUNT FOR ALL THE 26 COUNTRIES

 

 

 

If somebody wants to travel to a Schengen country, he or she has to verify that he can cover the costs of his/her staying. One of the most common cause of the rejection is the lack of the sufficient funds. If the applicant cannot convince the Authorities that he or she has enough money to cover his cost during the visit his or her application will be rejected.

 

WHICH DOCUMENTS CAN VERIFY YOUR FINANCIALS?

 

The Authorities can accept a wide array of documents. The most commonly used are:

 

  • A personal bank statement indicating your financial movements (for at least 3 last months)

  • Credit card

  • Cash

  • Traveller’s cheques

  • Pay slips

  • Proof of employment

  • Supporting document to attest sponsor’s readiness to cover your expenses during your stay

  • Proof of prepaid accommodation

  • Document about accommodation in private

  • Proof of prepaid transport

 

 

BUT HOW MUCH MONEY IS REALY NEEDED?
