Complain
I would like to appeal against the rejection of my Schengen visa application, I would to know the reasons of refusal, and if there is any paper needs.
This is the third time to refuse, I delivered all of requested documents.
I want to complain that woman (Employee), She called me with impolite manner after a few days from delivering all documents in TLS Contact office, she asked me Astonishing questions like (why did you applicant visa for third time, You was refused many time before?), and she did not believe any reply that I said to her and she was very provocative with me, I answered her that France council did not prevent any body from submitting application even for thousand time, after ending the call, I called the same number again, replied me another woman and I told her to get my passport back I would not want to go to France never .
Why such this woman speaking as this impolite manner, I am old woman, I am from respectful family, I had gone many countries USA, London, Germany and many others.
Finally I was planning to visit such a beautiful place like a France just for tourism, but you have another reason.
THANKS A LOT

Appeal for tourist visa refusal
Dear Sir/ Madam,

This email is to appeal my Schengen tourist visa refusal (find relevant information below). I find the refusal reason completely nonsense since I already submitted all required documents as requested.

I ask you to reconsider my application , or thoroughly explain and justify the refusal reason. I would also kindly ask you to review this issue as soon as possible since I have my flight and accommodation already booked.

Please note that a proof of my enrollment ( Master program )at the Arab Academy for Science and Technology in Cairo is available upon request. I see that this document would support my appeal towards the reason you stated because it was not submitted along with my visa application


Also note that i have already sent an email to concerned department with the case stated but i have never received a reply from them.As a consequence, I would really appreciate your reply on this matter so i would know exactly how to deal with my flight and accommodation that i have already paid and booked.

Appeal for my family visa refuse
Jan 4, 2018

Embassy of the Republic of France,
Visa Section,
Cairo, Egypt.

To Whom It May Concern:
Good day !
I am Dr. Mahmoud Shaheen, Egyptian, born in Cairo on May 14, 1959, with passport number A09090035. I live in Alexandria, Egypt. I work at present time in Saudi Arabia, and my family members live and study in Egypt.

We have planned to spend my daughter’s midyear education vacation (starting Jan 20) at France. I applied for my visa here in Saudi Arabia and got it on Dec 6, 2017. My wife and my daughter applied for visa in Cairo through a tourist agent (A-travel).

My wife is a Veteran pensioner, named Suzan Bishr, passport # A09462167, and my daughter is a Dentistry Student named Lamees Shaheen, passport # A09089138.

I am writing this letter as remonstration for the rejection of my family visa application we received from the French Embassy dated Jan 2, 2018. My family visa application was refused for the reason that “l'objet et les conditions du sejour envisage n'ont pas ete justifies غرض وشروط الإقامة المقصودة لم يكن له ما يبرره”.
I don't understand why they were refused as tourist visa when they have shown proofs that they will be coming back to Egypt as well as me to my work and my daughter to her university. I don’t know what that travel agency committed with their itinerary, but I Know that we intended to relax and have splendid days at France. Hence I am writing to appeal my family visa application and I have attached additional documents as proof for our intentions as a family to coallese and spend leisure time break.

Firstly, I have submitted and attached in this appeal all the documents that you require as proof of my approved visa, my work commitment, financial capability, Saudi return visa, my tickets from and to Saudia. I am a full-time employee of a reputable medical group of healthcare providers.

Secondly, my daughter travelled around Europe in Jan 2016 during a similar midyear education vacation. I have attached a photo of her type C visa issued by the Embassy of Germany. I would also like to point out that she followed the dates of her visa and left from the Schengen Area before its expiry to join her semesters on time.

Thirdly, we will be traveling as a family tourism, me, Suzan and Lamees, aiming at a break of leisure in our busy life of work.

Me, and my family are planning to fly together on Saturday, Jan 20, 2018, to France. I hope you can respond to my appeal as soon as possible because I have barely two weeks before our planned departure date. I’ll start my vacation here at KSA and fly to Egypt on Jan 12, 2018.

On Jan 4, 2018 I sent same appeal with attachments to your respected consulate in Cairo at e-mail:
admin-francais.le-caire-fslt@diplomatie.gouv.fr

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


Sincerely,

Dr. Mahmoud Shaheen

your embassy told me to go apply from another country
To whom it may concern
my name is Mr Aly hassan Ahmed Aly. my passport number is: . my TLScontact reference number:

I applied for a schengen to france from TLS contact. after waiting 2 weeks i received the passport today in an envelope.
it tells me that i did not receive the schengen because I have residency in the united arab emirates.
Ok. then why you dont mention in the application process that anyone who has residency in another country should apply from that other country? Also why TLS office even told me that all me papers are correct to apply for the schengen even though they saw my passport and saw my residency? also as an Egyptian citizen i have the right to apply from the country i was born in even though i have residency in another country. I live in Egypt. having a residency in another country does not mean i live there. I took the schengen many times from another countries and i even took it for many years. Now that is the 1st time that a consulate tells me to go apply from the residency country.
I demand to arrange a meeting with someone from the consulate because what has happened here is unacceptable
So please if someone could call me on +201006693429 or email me here or send me a number for someone to assist me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my problem and I hope to hear from you soon.

my visa was not rejected or accepeted. I dont understand
To whom it may concern
my name is May bahgat nofal
I applied for a schengen to france from TLS contact. after waiting 2 weeks i received the passport today in an envelope. It did not have the schengen inside or even a rejeciton letter for any reason. i asked TLS supervisor and he said that is the 1st time that they receive a passport back with no rejection letter or acceptance. he said to contact you and send you my case because maybe there was a mistake. so i hope that someone from the consulate could clarify to me why i did not have the schengen or even a rejection letter because that is not the 1st time for me to apply. I applied many times and received it all the time.
So please if someone could call me on +201006693429 or email me here or send me a number for someone to assist me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my problem and I hope to hear from you soon.
