Schengen visas get extended processing times
Schengen visa high-season is back, resulting in a shortage of visa appointment availability and extended processing times.
Appointments are available at the Hungarian and Greek lodgement centres from the end of June, at the Dutch lodgement centres from the middle of June, and at the Polish lodgement centres from the beginning of July.
Processing times for Portuguese visas are being released a day prior to departure, while Spanish, Greek, Danish, German and Swiss visas are strictly 15 working days. Agents are advised to start applying up to three months prior to travel to avoid disappointment.
