· Generally, you are only allowed to stay 90 days within a period of 180 days in the Schengen-Area. The
validity of the requested visa would exceed the maximum period of time of 90 days within 180 days.

were not sufficient to predict a positive result as far as your intended trip is concerned. The Embassy takes amongst others the following facts into consideration:
· The family ties to Ghana (spouse, minor children, guardian-unions etc.)
· The professional binding (existence of a fixed employment relationship)
· The economic bond (regular income from rents or real estate assets)
· The employment relationship has not been established / confirmed.
· Proper use of Schengen-Visa in the past
· Changes in the personal situation since the granting of the last Schengen-Visa
