Processing time

The processing time for applications is normally up to 15 calendar days after the embassy or consulate has received the application. In some cases, applications are sent to the Directorate of Immigration (UDI), and the processing time in these cases may be up to 45 calendar days.

VFS will forward your application to the embassy the day after submission.

We will contact you if we need more information. The Embassy will start to process the application when all the required documents have been received.

VFS Global may contact you for an interview, at the embassy's request, if necessary.
