Visa Processing - Urgent Request
Dear Madame/Sir,

I hope you are having a good day/week. I am contacting you regarding my visa application processing in your honorable consulate. I have already submitted my papers 11th of July and it reached you the 12th of July early morning. Although I know you are overwhelmed and super busy with summer applications, I am still hopeful to ask a kind request from you.

I am traveling next Wednesday (August 2nd in the morning) to Lebanon to start a volunteering mission there and I need my passport before then. I am hoping that you have granted me the visa (4th time from french embassy , I have lived in paris for two years doing my masters) and that I can get it by Sunday or Monday so I don't have to change my flights (that has been paid) and lose the volunteering opportunity.

P.S: I have tried to get an earlier appointment from TLS starting mid May and I have emailed them more than 7 times in 7 different days (all documented) but they never were able to give me an earlier one (before the 11th of July).

Information about my application: My name is Ahmed Samy Lotf, my Passport number is A22233744, my reference number is M4627249. I have applied for a short stay visa to France starting 4th of September. My application arrived to your consulate 12th of July.

waiting any kind of response and hoping for your understanding and cooperation as usual.

Worst experience with an EU embassy
I’m an interventional cardiologist at Cairo university. I have 4 previous Schengen visas. Last ones were to France in 2017 and to Spain on march 2018. I had an important presentation in EUROPCR 2018 (biggest conference of interventional cardiology in Europe each year). And I got refusal for the reason “ the information I provided for purpose and condition of intended travel are not reliable” though I have provided same information for the same embassy for the same conference in the same time of the year last year and I got the visa. I sent too many emails and I got no reply, and I was told that if no change I will get no reply. I think if some papers were missing I should have been contacted before I get the reply. And also I think I should get a rely on my emails whether it’s positive or negative.

I am writing this letter as remonstration for the rejection of my visa application I received from the “Consulat General De France Au Caire” dated April 18, 2018. My visa application was refused for the reason that “the information provided to justify the purpose and conditions of the intended stay is not reliable”.
I Don’t understand why I was refused a tourist visa when I have shown proofs for the purpose of the trip and the approval of work to have vacation and leave the work and the time of the trip.
Hence I am writing to appeal my visa application and I have attached additional documents as a proof that I do not intend to be an illegal immigrant in France.
Firstly, I have submitted all the documents that you required as a proof as an employee I am full-time employee of Seven Agency “Sports Marketing Agency” as an Account manager since December 2015.
Secondly, I have attached a proof that I have a property and a Car

Thirdly, I have attached again The Hotel Reservation, Flight Tickets and the Itinerary of the trip.

Thank you so much for considering my appeal and I hope to hear a positive response from you.
