The Schengen Visa is a tourist visa so in order to obtain the visa successfully; the following requirements should be met by the visa applicant:
- Strong economic and social ties with Thailand i.e. stable employment, savings, dependents and assets and properties. These are the reasons that you are coming back after your allowed visit in the Schengen States.
- If going there through sponsorship, a formal invitation letter should be furnished by the sponsoring party. A proof of his financial position may also be required. A proof of your genuine relationship is sometimes asked so be ready on this one as well.
