Despite of hiring a very reputed emigration/visa agent (from France), my long visitor visa (was refused by consulate. The reason of refusal was :reason of stay is unreliable". Surely this is very shocking when it affects all your long term plans; and you have put everything in order along with school admission documents for children and very solid work and bank profiles.
While third party (TLS contact) accepting application mentioned that it might take 2 to 4 or even 6 weeks for such cases, the decision for my application was taken in merely 3 days without any regard to efforts and preparation gone in it. The same 3rd party (TLS Contact) also mentioned during application that authority speaks English. But when I was called from Consulate (in 2 days), she did not speak any word in English. I was lost before I could say anything and the call was dropped.
Next day I got mail to collect the passport, just to find out that visa was refused- all done in 3 days only for 4 passports, while even a plain schengen visa is issued in 1 week.
Now what are the options I have, as I am very keen to apply for the same visa again. Should I appeal against the decision? Or its not worth it?
The visa type applied was long Sejour (visitor). The children's application was asked to be changed to Student Visa during application from TLS contact. Indian national with sound finance and businesses in multiple countries.
