Bala Visa has been forwarded to me and I thought it important to share it. Someone has the intelligence and patience to compute how much a Schenghen visa REALLY costs for a Lebanese factoring in lost time, transportation, paperwork, bureaucracy, etc... And came up with the staggering figure fo 452 Dollas!... Yes, please go to the website and make sure to fill in the petition about reciprocity (mind you Europeans breeze through Lebanese customs in one minute flat!). Anyone who has gone through the hassle or humiliation of a Schenghen must sympathisize. And whomever did this has my respect.
