Your safety is our priority. As part of precautionary measures, customers visiting our Application Centres are required to wear face mask and gloves.

Customers exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, including cough and difficulty breathing will be allowed to reschedule their application submission for another day and will be advised to seek medical attention.

Please also note that:

  1. Limited number of customers will be allowed inside the Application Centre at any one time. A pre booked appointment is required.
  2. Only the main applicant will be allowed inside the Centre.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

Every visa applicant, including children/infants, has to come and submit his/her visa application in the visa application centre by appointment only.

It is advised to book a visa application appointment as soon as applicants know they will be travelling, allowing enough time for the Mission to process the visa application (see Processing Time under the various visa categories) and taking in consideration the days that VFS offices and /or the Mission may be closed (see Public Holidays/Closures).

Prior to the visa application appointment booking, applicants need to complete, print and sign the online Schengen visa application form (see Application Form as per respective visa category).

The booking of a visa application appointment is as follows:

  1. Click Appointment Link
  2. Log in with registered credentials (new users need to register first)

Appointment letter will be brought to the visa application centre and presented to VFS Security staff upon arrival in the visa application centre on applicant’s appointment date; applicants are requested not to come earlier than 20 minutes before their booked appointment time in order to control crowd flow in the visa application centre.
