Shanghai Visa in Nigeria and How to Apply 2021 Latest Updates.

Shanghai Visa in Nigeria: In this article, my main focus is on the Shanghai visa for Nigerians and other essential information that is required for applying for the Shanghai Visa. Kindly stay glued to this post for more information. A Schengen visa allows free travel within certain countries of Europe. You will not need to apply to several embassies when traveling within these countries and you can certainly take a short flight to move between them.

Types of Schengen Visas

Uniform Schengen Visa

Category A: Airport Transit Visa – needed when traveling through an airport situated within the Schengen area.

Category C: Short-term Visa – this is your standard tourist visa which is valid for up to 90 days.

Your short-term visa will also include how many times you will be allowed to re-enter countries within the Schengen area. This includes single entry, double and multiple entries.

Other than a tourist visa, there are many other types of short-term visas. These include business, medical treatment, religious purposes, sports competition, conference, government delegation, and study and invitation visas.

Limited Territory Visa

This Schengen visa allows the holder to only travel within the country/countries that the visa has been issued to. You will not be allowed entry into any other country in the Schengen area.

This type of visa is usually only issued in some type of emergency, limiting the user to a specific country or area.

Long-term Visa

You may also apply for a long-term visa if you are going to be reunited with family living in one of the Schengen countries, have a family member that is an EU citizen and plan to visit for an extended period of time, as well as if you have been granted a job in the Schengen area.

Shanghai Visa Application Requirements?

You will need to obtain all of your required documents to start the process of applying for your Schengen visa.

Without all of the relevant documents, the process will be delayed so it is best to get everything together at once. You will need:

  • A completed Schengen application form
  • Valid passport (with 2 consecutive clean pages) and a full-color copy of data page
  • Two passport photos
  • Bank statements for the last three months
  • Bank details
  • Hotel reservations in your choice of country
  • Medical insurance
  • Round trip flight reservation
  • Evidence of a need to return back to Nigeria (letter from employer, etc.)
  • Color copies of all previous Schengen visas.
  • Employment details of the last three months

Shanghai Visa – How Much Will it Cost?

At present, the price of a Schengen visa is 60 EUR (about 24,820 NGN) for a short stay of fewer than 90 days. You will need to pay upfront, and unfortunately, there is no refund if your application is rejected.

Where to Apply?

Firstly, download your Schengen visa application form, print it out, and complete it. Once completed, make sure to have all of your other needed documents before submitting it to the country that you will apply to.

If you’re planning on visiting more than one country, apply at the country’s consulate/embassy that you’ll be spending the majority of your time in.

Alternatively, if you’re planning on spending an equal amount of time in each of these countries, then you must apply for your Schengen visa with the country that you’ll visit first.

VFS Global has been appointed by the Schengen embassies to handle and oversee all Schengen visa applications from Nigeria.

Please note that you will still need to appear in person at the embassy of your chosen country to visit. You will have your in-person interview and biometric fingerprints taken at the embassy.

What if Your Visa Gets Denied?

Your Schengen visa may be denied for a number of reasons. The most common reason for a denied visa is submitting incorrect information or not having all of the documentation at hand. To avoid this, make sure to submit everything that is asked for.

To save yourself the heartache of wasted money, it would be a good idea to get insured against this unforeseen circumstance and purchase the Travelstart Visa Denied insurance for peace of mind.

These details provided, will go a long way to help you.
