To qualify for a Schengen visa, you must generally establish three things. One, you must show justification for the purpose and condition of your stay in the Schengen territory. Two, you must show that you have the intention to depart the territory before the expiry of your visa. Three, you must show that you have sufficient means of subsistence for your visit. Though there are other requirements you must meet, these three frequently account for a number of Schengen visa refusals.
