Maia, I believe Germany doesn't have the possibility to appeal denial of a short-stay visa, correct? 'We' do
Yes and no.
No for a tourist visa (which bradipa would have to apply for), yes for a visit visa (when somebody in Germany has signed a declaration of liability and is paying for most of the trip). But the rates of success of the appeal aren't very good either.
