Processing Time

Processing time for a Schengen visa is 15 calendar days. If further scrutiny is needed, the processing time can be extended to 30 days and in exceptional cases up to 60 days.

Please note that for applicants coming from some countries, including Rwanda and DR Congo, a prior consultation is required according to the Schengen regulations. This means the processing times for these applicants may be longer than 15 days; in particular, this is the case if you are going to a country that the Embassy represents. Find the list of nationalities for consultation here .

NOTE: THE PROCESSING TIME ONLY STARTS RUNNING WHEN THE APPLICANT HAS SUBMITTED ALL DOCUMENTS ACCORDING TO THE CHECK LIST THAT APPLIES AND THE EMBASSY HAS ACCEPTED THE APPLICATION
