To Whom it May concern
I am writing to ask you to conduct an investigation about some of the humiliation that visa applicants are going through everyday in the European consulates around the world, particularly after 9/11, because of their nationality. I understand that comparing to other serious problems of human rights abuses - to be humiliated or going through frustration because of a visa application - is not a priority. But believe me, changing the conditions for visa applications can contribute in reducing the level of misunderstandings and conflicts between cultures.
