Extension of visa delays
Exceptionally and for a limited time, deadlines for issuing visas are extended.
Because of a new EU directive implemented at the request of a country of the Schengen area hosting a global event, delays in issuing visas are lengthened to ten days to 31 July 2016.
We invite you more than ever to take precautions and to submit your visa application in light of these new deadlines. The summer approaching, we also remember the importance of anticipating of your appointment decision up to 3 months before the date of your trip
