Visa type

Hi. Is there any particular visa type we should be looking at? Schengen-Tourist visa? Sorry if this is a silly question. Rehman 11:13, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Visa requirements

Hello again. I was studying the visa application process, and noted that they need the following information (among others):

  1. On visa application form
    1. Surname and first name of the inviting person(s) in the Member State(s)
    2. Address and e-mail address of inviting person
    3. Name and address of inviting company/organisation
    4. Surname, first name, address, telephone, telefax, and e-mail address of contact person in company/organisation
  2. Supporting documentation in relation to the applicant's social and professional status
  3. Health insurance covering a minimum of €30,000

Can someone help me with the above, please? I'm scratching my head for (3) and (4). Rehman 11:14, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi Rehman. I updated the page with some information. Please, contact visas@wikimedia.org for theese informations. --Yiyi 15:13, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
Hi Yiyi. Thank you so much. Also, are you able to clarify the last point (health insurance)? Should I worry about this? Rehman 12:50, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, but I don't know. You may ask to WMF. --Yiyi 12:53, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
Hi Ellie. Will this effect participants applying for visa? Rehman 13:24, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
