Schengen visa

Citizens of some non-EU countries are required to hold a valid visa when travelling to the Schengen area.

A Schengen visa has to be obtained from the Embassy/Consulate of the Schengen State, which will be the main destination (i.e. where the most nights will be spent), during the visit to the Schengen Area.

If an equal amount of time is spent in different Schengen States during a single visit to the Schengen Area, then the Schengen visa must be obtained with the Embassy/Consulate of the Schengen State, which will be entered first.

The documentation related to the means of travel and accommodation must cover the complete itinerary of the visit to the Schengen Area; that is travel tickets must be provided, not only for the travel from and to the Schengen Area, but also for the travel between the different Schengen States.

Each visa application must fully comply with the documents required for the respective visa category and cannot be submitted more than 3 months prior to the intended departure date.

The acceptance of a visa application and supporting documents by VFS Global does not guarantee the issuance of a visa.

The issuance of a visa, the visa validity period, the number of entries and amount of travel days are at the sole discretion of the Consulate.

If a visa application is returned by the Consulate requesting missing documents or any other missing/ incorrect information, the applicant must accept responsibility for any delay that may occur in the visa application processing time.
