What does my job have to do with anything? Do you think that is insulting? What a miserable little life you're obviously leading



A chinese friend of mine wants to come to Greece and stay for a few days.


Unfortunately the girl was asked to show that she has got 5000 euros in a bank account in order to have the right to take a visa.
I am wondering ,is this law the greek government's law ?Does it happen only when the chinese want to travel to Greece or for any other country?
Why do you think that there is such a restriction for the chinese only?
Will this law  stop one day?
I want so much to give hospitality to this chinese girl with all my heart.Unfortunately she does not have the money in the bank.How can I help her?
I really    love China,半个 中国 人

In Europe (Shengen area), visa restrictions a very high not only for Chinese. Basically what the european governments want to know is that a person is not going to stay and seek for a job. When granted a visa to a Shengen member country, the person can travel freely around those countries. This not only applies for Europe, but for USA, Canada or Australia, to put just a few examples.

Yes, thats the law. The first time my girlfriend wanted to visit the UK, i had to provide the embassy with copies of my pay-slips and bank statements. With Greece having a terrible record of illegal immigrants, i think the law should be alot tougher than it is.

come on.The greek government should ask for different documents than money.
For example why they do not ask me some guarantee that I am going to give hospitality to the girl for a month and then me to be obliged to send her back to China.
It is terrible.The girl wants so much to come to Greece and stay for a month .She will come back to China .She does not have the money.This is not fair at all.

Apparently Greek gonverment is terrible, and illegal immigration is at a record high. I believe that the law should be even more strict and better enforced.
Ghettos are popping up everywhere in the centre of Athens, i wonder if you can see it! The softie softie approach is not working out anymore. And honestly, 5000 Euro's is not much anyway, if they don't have it, then don't go!
