Result of your application

You will be notified via email or telephone when your application has been processed.

The result can be collected at the Visa Application Centre or the Consulate, depending on where the application was submitted.

If you have been granted a visa, a sticker will be placed in your passport. Please check the duration of stay specified on the sticker. The duration of stay indicates how many days you are allowed to stay in the Schengen area.

If your application has been rejected, you will receive a written explanation as to why it was rejected. You can appeal the decision.
