“Lately I have been asked by friends about applying for a Schengen visa to Sweden. I did it last July 2013 and had it posted in my old blog site that I deactivated so I thought posting the write up here will hopefully help anyone who needs some form of guidance. This post is old but I hope nothing much has changed and it can be of any help.”
The purpose of my application is to visit my boyfriend in Sweden and the questionnaire below is what came along with the check list I have printed out. This may not be applicable for applications with a different purpose.
