Warning concerning fake homepages about visas

The Consulate General wants to warn of websites which offers assistance in submitting applications for Schengen visas. On the websites, assistance is offered to reserve a time slot for submission of visa applications to The Consulate General and assistance with the application. These homepages also offers assistants concerning residence permit. The services are offered to a very high fee.

These certain homepages claim to belong to VFS Global, the service company that receives and distributes visa applications on behalf of The Consulate General. Please do not rely on this websites.

The Consulate General in Istanbul only cooperates with VFS Global concerning submission and distribution of visa applications.
