Carta de presentación para solicitar la visa Schengen

Carta de presentación para solicitar la visa Schengen

Al solicitar el visado Schengen, debe enviar una carta de presentación de la solicitud en la que explique el motivo de su viaje, la lista de documentos que adjunta, su itinerario de viaje, qué preparativos ha hecho para el mismo, y cómo costeará el viaje. Es mejor explicar el plan diario (itinerario), lo que sirve al funcionario consular para formarse una idea clara de qué hará exactamente mientras esté en la zona Schengen y cuáles son sus intenciones verdaderas.

La siguiente carta de presentación de la solicitud de visa Schengen podría servirle de modelo para ayudarle a escribir la suya. Por supuesto tendrá que cambiar muchas cosas para reflejar su situación concreta.

Subject: Schengen visa for tourism for Juan Vela, Mexican Passport No: A1234567

Dear Sir or Madam,

My wife Juliana Vela and I would like to travel to Switzerland from Jun 15, 2019, through Jun 25, 2019, as tourists. I would like to apply for the Schengen visa for the same.

We have grown up watching international movies, and it is our lifelong dream to visit Switzerland to see all of its beautiful sightseeing places.

We have planned our travel itinerary as follows:

  • 06/14/2019 – Take a flight from San Francisco, CA
  • 06/15/2019 – Land at Zurich Airport, Switzerland. Overnight stay at Zurich Marriott Hotel
  • 06/16/2019 – Visit Lake Zurich, Burkliplatz, and Loindehof Square
  • 06/17/2019 – Visit Old Town, Rhine Falls, Grossmunster, and Uetliberg
  • 06/18/2019 – Travel to The Matterhorn
  • 06/19/2019 – Travel to Jungfraujoch – The top of Europe
  • 06/20/2019 – Travel to Interlaken and Lucerne
  • 06/21/2019 – Travel to Lake Geneva, Jet d’Eau (Water Jet), Temple de Saint-Pierre 
  • 06/22/2019 – Jaridin Anglais (English Garden) and Parc de la Grange

  • 06/24/2019 – Travel Back to Zurich.  Overnight stay.
  • 06/25/2019 – Take a flight back to San Francisco, CA.

I am employed at Apple in Cupertino, CA, as a software engineer since January 2015, and my annual salary is $140,000. My employer has already approved my vacation. I will be able to take care all of our expenses for our trip to Switzerland.

Please find the following documents attached herewith in support of my Schengen visa application:

  • Schengen visa application form
  • Two photographs
  • Valid passport – Original and a copy
  • Proof of accommodation
  • Proof of my bank statements, tax returns, and my last 3 pay stubs
  • Employment letter, no objection letter
  • Marriage certificate
  • Flight itinerary
  • Schengen visa fees

  • Proof of our legal status in US – H1B visa for myself and H4 visa for my wife

(Additionally, if you were applying for Schengen visa for medical condition:)

  • Proof of medical records – specific to your medical condition
  • Bank statements to show that you have enough money to take care of your treatment. 

I trust that you will find the above documents sufficient in order to approve our Schengen visa.
