Which Country To Choose For Schengen Visa Application?

Schengen Visa application is a bit tricky as 26 countries comprise the Schengen State. The applicants get confused about which country to apply for a visa. Here lies the trick to deciding wisely for selecting a country for your visa application and maximizing the chances of getting the visa approved. It is recommended to apply for a visa after reviewing the country-wise visa approval statistics in recent times, the convincing logic of your visit to the country, home country tie, previous travel history, and financial solvency. 

Also be advised that it is logical to apply for Schengen visa to the country where you have a specific reason for the visit (ex. family visit, business visit, etc.). Such applications have a high approval rate. However, if you do not have a specific reason, choose to apply for tourist visa to a Schengen country that has a high approval rate. 

Not all countries have their consulates in Bangladesh. Some do not have activities at all, some have representative organizations. The representatives accept visa applications and work on their behalf and forward the applications to respective authorities.
