Schengen visa applications at the Embassy

30 Jun 2022

Since the end of April 2022 the Embassy has noted a huge increase of Schengen visa applications and the increase has been unpredictable. The situation has affected the handling time as well as the response time to emails. The handling time is still much longer than normal but incoming emails are now responded to within 5 working days. Please apply as soon as possible before travelling, note that it is possible to apply even 6 month prior departure. The Embassy is sorry for any inconvenience caused.
