Appeal for visa refusal
Dear sir/madame,
i would like to inquire about the reason of my visa refusal known that i completed all the requested documents and my criteria meets what is necessary , however your refusal reason was claiming that my documents weren't reliable. I would like some clarification for this refusal as i made it clear in my application that i was travelling for tourism with my family (mother and sister) -which already took the visa- and in a trip organized by our club (Alexandria sporting club).
Thank you for your time and i hope i get the clarification i want and if any of my documents weren't clear and/or missing so i can apply again and successfully take the visa to spend my vacation with my family at your beautiful country.

Egyptian man marrying a French woman
Bonjour. My brother who is Egyptian will marry a French woman in Cairo. Does she need to bring any legal documents with her from France? Do any of these documents need to be translated in Arabic? Do they need to register their marriage at the French embassy?

Reconsideration Request to refusal of my visa
Dear Madam/Sir
Reconsideration Request to refusal of my visa

I'm writing to ask for reviewing my visa application to access France. The reason my application was rejected as per the rejection document is that information provided are not convincing. However I have to explain my point further as follows:

1- I've already gained a Bachelor's degree in Specific Education, Faculty of Specific Education, Alexandria University.
2- Now, I'm registered at Faculty of Fine Arts, Alexandria University to complete the requirements of a Bachelor's degree program in Décor (INTERIOR DESIGN)
3- I've been doing online business as a Freelance Graphic & Interior Designer for 5 years.
4- I have a bank account as mentioned in the application.
5- I'm not planning for a permanent stay in France. Rather I want to visit the country for a short period to explore artistic approaches and trends across French cities. Also it would be great if I got the opportunity to join a French institution for further studies. Accommodation will be prebooked in a hotel during the whole stay there.

Therefore I appreciate if I can get my visa approved as fast as possible.

Thank you so much.
