Please read all the information provided on the VisMetric website regarding the necessary documents and procedures.

Please note that appointments by phone are no longer available. Please book online only.

Important: each applicant must book a separate appointment. This also applies to applicants using the online application form.

Please apply well in advance, specifically during peak times like Easter, summer and Christmas holiday periods and public holidays. You may apply for a visa up to 12 weeks before you start your trip. ONLY applications from UK residents can be accepted.

Please note that there is an additional option to book an appointment for a Schengen visa application at the Consulate directly. However, there are only a limited number of appointments available each day that are usually booked well in advance. For an earlier appointment and faster service we recommend to book via VisaMetric services.
