SCHENGEN VISAS

Specialist advice and service options for travellers visiting any of the 26 European countries which make up the Schengen area. 

SCHENGEN VISA SUPPORT SERVICE

Most Schengen member states require that travellers apply in person, providing biometric information at the relevant embassy or processing centre. However, we can still help with your application in a number of ways. Our Schengen Visa Support Service includes the following:

 

APPLICATION FORM & VISA REQUIREMENTS  |  You can generally find application forms and documentary requirements on the embassy or processing centre website, but to save you having to search and download them yourself, we’ll gather these together and send them directly to you via email, or as hard copies in the post. When you’ve filled out the form and prepared your documents, send them back to us. Again, you can chose to do this via email or post – whichever you prefer.

 

APPLICATION PRE-CHECK  |  One of our Schengen visa experts will go through your application and check everything is in order before it’s submitted. We’ll let you know if anything is missing or needs adjusting, or if it’s all good to go. If you’ve sent us hard copies of the documents, we’ll post them back to you via Royal Mail Special Delivery.

 

BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT  |  We’ll liaise with you to find out when you’re available, then book an apppointment for you at the embassy or visa processing centre.

 

COLLECTION AND RETURN  |  Where possible, we’ll collect your passport and newly-issued visa from the embassy, and send it back to you via Royal Mail Special Delivery. Please note, depending on where you live and which Schengen country you’re visiting, this part of the service may not be available. The fee will be adjusted to reflect this. Please contact us if you need further advice before placing your order.

Fee  |  £85  (payable in advance)

WHAT IS A SCHENGEN VISA?

A Schengen visa allows the holder to travel freely within and between the Schengen area member states during the period of its validity. Travellers may apply for both business and tourist visas, and although application requirements may vary from country to country, they are generally very similar.

WHERE TO APPLY

  • If you are travelling to a single destination within the Schengen area, you must apply via the relevant embassy or processing centre of that country.
  • If you are planning to visit two or more Schengen countries, you should apply via the embassy or processing centre of your main destination (the country in which you will spend the most time).
  • If you have no main destination (i.e. you’re planning to spend an equal amount of time in several countries), you should apply via the embasy or processing centre of the country you will visit first.

FAMILY MEMBERS OF EU CITIZENS

Partners (married or in a civil partnership) and children of EU, EEA or Swiss nationals may be eligible to enter the Schengen area for up to 90 days without a visa. In order to qualify, they must be travelling with or travelling to join an EU/EEA/Swiss family member, and hold a UK residence permit which states either ‘family member of an EU citizen’ or ‘family member of an EEA or CH citizen’. Applicants are advised to contact the relevant embassyto confirm their eligibility before travelling.
