Handling Schengen visa applications for Pakistani citizens and Afghan residents in Pakistan, the Swedish Embassy has designated VFS Global centers in various Asian cities, such as Bangkok, Yangon, Hanoi, and others, for visa submissions. Applicants have the flexibility to choose the location for visa submission based on their convenience and may need to arrange visas in those countries if required.

The statements should illustrate a consistent financial standing. Specifically, applicants need to maintain a minimum daily balance equivalent to EUR 2,400 (approximately Rs727,104) for a 30-day stay in Sweden.

Ensuring Financial Stability:

The minimum bank balance requirement aims to ensure that applicants have sufficient funds to cover their expenses during their intended stay in Sweden. By verifying financial stability, the visa process aims to mitigate the risk of applicants facing financial difficulties while abroad.

Overall, the visa application process for visiting Sweden entails providing evidence of financial means and demonstrating ties to the applicant’s home country, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free travel experience.
