Schengen Visa Application

Hi there, Im new here and have searched the net for months looking for answers, I might try here..

I have a GF living in the Philippines and want her to come here in Switzerland, I told her to apply for a Schengen Visa (tourist). I will be giving her an Invitation Letter saying that i will handle all expenses from travel to accomodation (literally everything).

Now my question is, will they still require a Bank Statement history for the last 3-6months? Problem is she doesnt have much to show in her bank statements, making me think even with my invitation letter they will decline the application because of her bank statements.

Thanks a lot for reading and sharing your knowledge/experiences

Re: Schengen Visa Application

They might require a confirmation of the declaration of sponsorship with local authorities. Depends on the country:

Re: Schengen Visa Application

Main point is that you will have to show you have at least 30,000 francs in your bank account to be able to sponsor her visit.

"Costs for people traveling alone, traveling groups, or families of not more than ten are covered up to 30,000 Swiss francs."

More on the exact procedure here:
