Schengen Visas, and UK Visas

oldplanemap.jpg

I realized I had to renew my Schengen Visa since I might have to travel to Europe for work for a couple of days, and I had to check on the UK Visa as well, but I didn’t need that. This is the number of days it takes to get a Schengen Visa from any of these embassies except the UK is for the UK Visa. It could be less then the stated time, but that is the official number of days it takes to get that Visa it might be less. I got my Visa from the German embassy and it took 4 days.

To get a Schengen or UK Visa you need:

  • Travel Itinerary with booked tickets
  • Hotel Reservations

Austria:
Official Duration 2 Days

Germany:
Official Duration 4 Days

France:
Official Duration 15 Days

Spain:
Official Duration 7 Days

Italy:
Official Duration 10 Days

UK:
Official Duration 2 Days

  1. I applied for a visa at the French Embassy on Tuesday 20th of February and got the Visa on Tuesday the 27th! That’s without any travel documents of hotel reservations!

  2. a-ha… it’s good to see the most efficient is the British Embassy and the least efficient (“quelle surprise”) is the French. I know the Austrians were also 2 days, but then Hitler was Austrian so being ruthlessly punctual must be in the genes.

    Happy travels.
