Ask Schengen Visa Questions

The Schengen immigration zone of Europe has been confusing travelers and immigration officials alike since it’s inception in 1995. I have consulted hundreds of travelers over the past five years who find themselves with questions regarding their Schengen visas: overstays problems, fiance visas, marriage residence permits, working illegally, and bans and punishments I’ve heard it all. Through doing this consultation I’ve received thousands of testimonials about the the actual enforcement of Schengen immigration policy and have also completed excessive research on the topic. I’m available to answer your Schengen visa questions by confidential email for a $25+ donation.
