Our First Schengen Visa Application Experience in Dubai

To be very honest, the Schengen visa application procedure sounded too daunting for us before that we tried to avoid it as much as possible. But after exploring Asia for years and a magical visit to Morocco back in 2016, we were suddenly left to wonder what else could be there for us to discover beyond our comfort zone. At that point, it really felt like a European vacation was a natural progression for us. So last year we decided to finally apply for a Schengen visa for the very first time. Fortunately, after a grueling wait of almost two weeks, we got a positive stamp.

As a first timer, I had a million questions in my head all throughout the application period. I still remember how much painstaking research (which meant countless Googling) I did before getting that coveted visa, so I would like to share with you how our experience went. Maybe this post could help someone who's also in the process of applying for a Schengen visa in Dubai.
