As you all probably heard by now, UAE citizens will no longer require a visa to travel to Schengen Zone Countries, after the European Parliament approved their proposal back in June last year. Needless to say, the Lebanese weren’t very fond of this decision and filed an official complaint to the EU claiming that they deserve this more than other Arab countries, specially after a study proved that Lebanon is indeed the centre of the universe, and given that Beirut was once known as the “Paris of the Middle East”.
In order to calm things down, and given how crucial Lebanon’s economy and tourists are to the European Union, the EU held an emergency meeting and agreed to grant Lebanese a visa-free access to Schengen Zone Countries if its citizens agree to abide by the following 10 conditions:
1- Lebanese will stand in line while boarding an airplane.
2- Lebanese will not fake bank statements or 5 star hotel reservations in their Schengen application.
3- Lebanese will not attempt to bribe the security guard at embassies.
4- Lebanese will not apply to a different country than the one they are going to.
5- Lebanese will not change seats on the airplane and confuse the hostesses.
6- Lebanese will not attempt to carry a 50kg luggage into the airplane as a carry-on
7- Lebanese will no longer clap when the plane lands.
8- Lebanese will not play loud Arabic music (or sing a mouwwel) on the airplane.
9- Lebanese will not attempt to smuggle keshek or basterma.
10- Lebanese will not schedule five different appointments on the same day to avoid waiting in line.
(PS: Satire Disclaimer)
11- Lebanese will not smoke arguileh on the plane
HAHAHA well …. there is a very small chance (Very underlined & In BOLD Marked in yellow !!!) that we might do all of them … except #7 … no chance … we do not want the schengen ! 😛
I didn’t understand why to fake bank statement and hotel reservation if it’s visa free travel so no need to fill an application right?
Sarcasm; learn it.
LOL!!! Loved it!!!!!
No. 7 is a must!
Faking your hotel reservation is a necessary evil.
What happens if for some reason your visa gets rejected, or you decide to cancel your trip?
It’s not wise to confirm your booking 1 or 2 months in advance.
I always book a hotel with a free cancellation policy, that way I can always change plans or maybe book a cheaper hotel at the last minute.
When the rules are ambiguous, you have to work your way around them.
That’s why I specifically stated 5-star hotels 🙂
Ma droure tenzal bil Le Bristol Champs Elysees if your bank statement shows 2000$
what about the fake bank statements ? Can i not make a reservation if i have a high statement ( whats the minimum ), am willing to make a reservation next week and am worried about that.
thnx in advance
There’s no maximum. However, there’s a minimum which is specified by the embassy.
The point of is to prove that you have a steady income and that you can support yourself during the trip.
If your bank account has been negative for the last 3 months, then suddenly shows $10,000 one day before the trip, it would seem suspicious.
If you don’t have enough funds, you can have someone sponsor you.
Tell the scheghen countries to shove their visa and stupid system up their turkey . Why are you undermining the lebanese ppl and you consider the scheghen countries civilized. Since they don t come in big numbers we should impose a visa just like they do to us and have them bring all the papers required like they humiliate us.
guess whattt,this is the price that a 3rld world country pays to get shengen ,so yess lebanon should be humiliated as long as its a 3rd world country and on top of it terrorist
Wait…u can actually do #10?
its funny that you didnt post this ,that leb is a 3rd world country and im sorry but thats how exactly a 3rd world country listed on terror lisf should be
I don’t think this is funny at all
really funny reasons 🙂 , well I think the main reason why Emirate citizens don’t need schengen visa anymore is because their country simply have everything to be respected for and because of their money. Concerning us Lebanese, I think the main reason for us to need a visa is our Unrespected Government and Politics outside.
Is it for real ????
What about snails? Don’t forget that Lebanese run up to Tetas house in the mountains after the first rain to scoop up every escargot in the street; this so they can pack em up and fly to London to deliver as a gift to their deprived sons living in Europe. This list is too funny!
And I thought there was genuine conditions to be met so that Lebanese will be able to travel to Europe without a visa ………..
The real reason is because Emirates border control equals if not rivals that of Europe. The Emirates passport holders have a secure digital ID. And the word is secure. When we switch to biometric passports and update our border controls accordingly, may be then …
Its not funny at all,, making fun of our stupidity?!?!? We will always remain the worst?!?!? Stupid people with stupid mind?!?! Stupid culture?!?!?
