Information on means of subsistence for each Member State, in case of representation:
According to the Aliens Act, foreigners not residing in Austria and that do not have sufficient means of subsistence to cover expenses concerning both their stay as well as departure, will not be authorized.
However, there is no fixed reference amount. Authorities shall decide on a case by case basis, in accordance with the purpose, type and duration of stay, for that reason — excluding cash money — depending on the circumstances, the following items can be considered as proof of means of subsistence: traveller checks, credit cards, bank guarantees, statements of responsibility signed by bona fide persons residing in Austria.
Belgium law requires proof of adequate means of subsitence.
- a) Foreigner residing in a private residence
Proof of means of subsistence can be provided through a taking in charge statement, signed by the person hosting the foreigner in Belgium, legally registered in their area of residency (commune).
A commitment to take someone in charge includes expenses to cover the stay, medical care, housing and repatriation, in order to avoid such expenses being borne by public authorities. The taking in charge statement shall be signed by a solvent person. If that person is a foreigner, they shall hold a residency or establishment permit.
If necessary, the foreigner may also have to provide proof of possessions.
If the foreigner does not have a banking credit, the foreigner is required to have approximately € 45 per day of the estimated duration of the stay.
- b) Foreigner residing in a hotel
If the foreigner cannot provide proof of credit, the foreigner is required to have approximately € 95 per day of the estimated duration of the stay.
Additionally, in most cases, the applicant should provide a travel ticket (plane ticket), allowing a return to their country of origin or of residency.
The necessary amount depends on the current minimum subsistence level and vary according to the expected duration of stay in the territory of the Czech Republic:
- For stays of less than 30 days - 0.5 times the minimum subsistence amount (current amount - November 2017 - 2,200 CZK) for each day of stay, i.e. 1,100 CZK per day;
- For stays of over 30 days - 15 times the minimum subsistence amount (current amount - November 2017 - 2,200 CZK), i.e. 33,000 CZK; this amount shall be doubled for each full month of stay provided for in the territory, i.e. additional CZK 4,400 for each month;
- Third-country nationals under the age of 18 must provide proof of half of the amount stated above.
Taking in charge statements as well as responsibility statements can also be provided as proof of sufficient means of subsistence.
Third-country nationals who intend to study in the territory may provide a document issued by a public authority or legal entity committing to covering all costs related to the stay of the third-country national by means of the payment of funds equivalent to the subsistence allowance (current amount - November 2017 - CZK 2,200) for one (1) month stay, or a document confirming that all costs related to both studies and stay will be covered by the organization hosting the student (school). If the amount referred to in the statement does not cover the necessary amount, the third-country national shall provide proof of funds equivalent to the difference between the subsistence allowance (current amount - November 2017 - CZK 2,200) and the amount covered by the statement, for the planned period of stay, which, however, can not exceed six times the subsistence minimum (currently CZK 13,200). Proof of means of subsistence for the purpose of residency may be replaced by a decision or agreement on any subsidy obtained under an international treaty binding on the Czech Republic.
Foreigners arriving in Estonia without an invitation or statement of responsibility shall provide proof of sufficient financial means to cover all expenses concerning their stay as well as departure.
Sufficient financial means are indexed at 0.2 of the minimum wage currently in place in Estonia, i.e. € 86 per day.
Otherwise, the person inviting the foreigner can take responsibility for all expenses related to staying and departure from Estonia.
According to the Aliens Act, foreigners must provide upon arrival proof of sufficient means of subsistence, taking into account both the duration of the intended stay and the return to the country of origin, as well as their passage through a third country in which their admission is guaranteed, as well as proof that such means have been legally obtained.
The assessment of sufficiency or insufficiency of means is done on a case-by-case basis. In addition to the means or tickets required for departure, as well as accommodation during the duration of the stay, an additional € 30 euros per day are required, depending on the type of accommodation and the possible existence of a sponsor.
The reference amount for means of subsistence considered sufficient, for both stay and transit through French territory, is equivalent to the minimum salary (SMIC), calculated on a daily basis, based on a fixed amount set on 1 January of the current year.
This amount is updated periodically, in line with the cost of living in France:
• automatically, if the price index registers an increase of more than 2%,
• by governmental decision, following the opinion of the National Collective Bargaining Commission, for raises higher than the price evolution.
A fixed amount per day is not required. Instead, the officer in charge of border control shall proceed, on a case-by-case basis, to a separate analysis.
