Important information on visa applications:

  • Be sure to read the corresponding visa application information carefully before booking an appointment.
  • Only book one appointment for yourself and only if you expect to be able to keep it. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please cancel it.
  • If you want to apply for visas for several family members (e.g. children) as a family, please book a separate appointment for each person.
  • To be able to start your journey on time, please apply for your visa early. Visa applications can be submitted from three months before the start of your trip.
  • You can only apply for your visa in person at the appointment you have booked.
