Has anyone already completed the visa processing or know whether the Bangalore embassy accepts the scanned copy of the invitation letter from the local host or insists for the original hard copy?

Hi Sudhin

Last time the German embassy made a big fuss about a local letter (in German) and rejected my visa. Callously they did not bother to call the person or the number mentioned on the letter. I was told that letter was fraudulent. I contacted VP of Deutsche Telekom (the host and the sponsor) and he called the foreign office to get the embassy to give me a visa. He had to send a physical letter which was translated in German.

But YMMV. Last week one of my friend got his visa in a day. But he was visiting Munich only for a day (for interview). Visa process pretty much everywhere is crapshoot. Better to be prepared. Also talk to the embassy in Bangalore before applying.

Hi All,

Is there any letter of invitation required for Visa or online IETF LOI will do. Do we require letters like in Argentina.
