Private Diplomacy

Creating Private Diplomatic Opportunities For Clients

A high profile individual was being denied a Visa into Europe’s Schengen Zone for reasons that were not readily apparent. One European country was accusing another as the source of the Visa denial. GSIS was engaged and succeeded in assisting the individual with overcoming the denial and achieving a Schengen Visa issuance.

GSIS principals met with leadership from the Interior Ministries of the relevant countries and worked with the offices of each country’s Prime Minister. GSIS also engaged the embassies of the two countries to the United States.

Following these engagements, GSIS was successful in urging a deeper review of the individual’s qualification for admittance. Both governments conducted the requested analysis and issued the Schengen Visa to our client.
