2019年美国F1留学生瑞士申根签证指南

美国F1留学生瑞士申根签证指南
基本上每年都要去欧洲开会, 前面两次都是去的法国, 这次是去瑞士苏黎世, 自然免不了的就是签证.

下面详细介绍如何申请瑞士申根签证!

网上填申请表

先去官网, 选择居住地, 自然是选 United States 啦, 不是国籍哦.

然后选择大使馆, 根据所在州, 我在 Indiana, 所以呢自然应该选 Chicago 或者 Washington. 这里我选择了 Washintong, 理由就是我的指纹记录在系统里了, 所以我肉身可以不用出现在大使馆. 这样就可以愉快地选择递签而不用专门跑去芝加哥! 另外即使去芝加哥, 我也不是去瑞士大使馆, 而是立陶宛大使馆. 综合考虑, 递签自然是最方便的!

然后填好表, 交钱即可.

准备文件

文件信息能够在这里找到. 因为我入境不超过 90 天, 所以是常规签证. 下面我介绍一下, 我这样的情况(使用绝大多数人)需要准备什么材料. 材料要求可以在这里找到. 确保是最新的要求哦!

Printed Schengen visa application form, fully completed and signed by the applicant. Please fill in and print your online application as well as book your appointment (if personal appearance is required) on the website: www.swiss-visa.ch. In case of minors (under 18 years of age), both parents will need to sign. Custody agreements/orders will have to be submitted.

这里就是前面提到的网上填写申请表, 如果指纹记录在系统的话, 就可以递签.

Two recent identical passport photos (please consult the requirements on the webpage). Digital files and photocopies will not be accepted.

两张美国护照(或签证)大小照片, 美国签证照片尺寸要求是近半年照白底照片一张及电子版,尺寸为 51mmX51mm 或 2英寸X2英寸. 我的照片是自己照的, 选了个白墙, 要求可以参考这个网页. 然后利用如下网站美国签证照片网上在线制作制作照片, 生成6联打印版本. 可以上传到CVS或者Walgreen等便利店打印成纸版照片, 只要3.3毛钱, 非常划算.

Original valid passport or travel document. Must be valid for at least three months beyond the planned stay, issued within the previous ten years and have at least 2 blank visa pages.

这个没啥好解读的. 入境时保证护照在三个月内有效, 并且有两张空白的页, 不然咋贴 Visa 呢.

Copy of valid passport or travel document (photo, data and signature pages only).

护照复印件一份.

Notarized copy of proof of residency in the USA, e.g. a valid permanent resident card (green card), H1B visa (plus I-797), F-1 visa (plus I-20), etc.

F-1 签证和 I-20 公证复印件. 我送过去的是 F-1 签证原件(就在护照上嘛...) I-20 公证, 跑去 OIA 什么的公证一下就行, 毕竟交了保护费, 得让他们干活啊!

If applicable, copies of previous Schengen visas issued within the past 5 years.

5 年内申根签证复印件.

A copy of your confirmed flight reservation.

机票预订 (推荐使用 StudentUniverse, 一般便宜不少, 记得看看有没有 Coupon) 和详细行程. 额貌似很多人花一点小钱比如淘宝或者别的什么的来预定, 以免签证过不了浪费钱. 我都是直接买好再去申签证的, 还好没出过错....

Hotel reservations for every night you intend to spend in a Schengen country. If you are staying with a friend or family member, please apply for a visitor visa.

预定好行程内每一天的 Hotel, 不能遗漏. 个人推荐到 Booking 或者 Priceline 找一些 Free cancellation 的. 酒店预订我用的是 Airbnb.

If requested, a valid visa in your travel document for the country you are visiting after leaving the Schengen space.

回美国, F-1 签证在手了.

Proof of sufficient financial resources: bank statements from last 3 months, listing your full name and address. A minimum of $100 per day is required to cover expenses (students: $30).

在网上下载三分最近的银行账单 (现在大多数都可以下载, 如果没有的话就去银行要吧), 账单上必须有自己的名字和地址. 这倒是我第一次看到明确最小数目的! $30 一天那不是妥妥的吗?

A recent letter from your employer (including your position and salary) or school (confirming your enrollment). If you are self-employed, please include a copy of your business license and tax return.

去 OIA 开个 Letter of Good Standing 即可.

A letter from your insurance company and a copy of your insurance card confirming international coverage of at least USD 40,000 for each of the following items: emergency medical expenses , emergency hospital treatment, and repatriation for medical reasons and mortal remains. If you do not have insurance, or your insurance company cannot provide such a specific letter, you must purchase insurance for the entire duration of your trip and provide proof of purchase.

旅行医疗保险: 我直接按照推荐选的 7 Corners, 不贵. 记得选择 outside U.S., 否则要贵 10 刀左右. 至少在 2019 年开始, 最便宜的那个套餐 Liaison Travel Economy 是不适用申根签证的, 所以注意啦! 要选至少 Liaison Travel Choice 套餐.

Passports with issued visas can be mailed back. If you wish to do so, please provide a prepaid, self-addressed return envelope with a tracking number of a secure carrier. Applicants must indicate their name and address both as sender and recipient. The Swiss representation does not assume any liability for the loss of documents submitted or returned by mail.

我买的是这个, 用 USPS 并且用邮票的方式, 如果贴了 mailing label 那么必须当天寄出, 所以不能贴 mailing label. From 填写家庭地址, to 也填写家庭地址. 另外请务要 tracking number, 这样比较放心, 可以自己跟踪快递. 因为这边大使馆是不会给你任何消息的, 我当时就是忘记记下 tracking number, 导致比较慌. 幸好一切都很顺利, 护照回来的很快.

The visa fee is subject to change: please check the website for the current fee.

交钱, 填完申请表的时候在网上交最方便!

然后就可以去寄了, Prepaid 的信封可以在寄的时候要, 记得要放进去哦.

用时

这里不得不表扬一下瑞士大使馆的工作效率, 星期五寄过去, 星期一收到文件然后我星期五拿到签证! 也就用了一周! 真心给力!
