Changed processing times for Schengen visa applications


Uhr, © Steve Zhao


The visa section informs that from 01.05. new appointments for tourist trips and special groups of persons will be made available and the appointment categories will be better organized. In the course of this increase in appointment capacities, the processing time for Schengen visa applications is now 14 days and no longer 7 days. Please take this into consideration when booking appointments and making your travel arrangements.

The Embassy would like to point out that visa applications for short stays (up to 90 days) can be submitted up to six months before the planned trip. Please make use of this possibility, as submitting your application too late will not result in accelerated processing and you may have to reschedule your trip.

We would also like to remind you that only complete applications will be accepted.
