The processing time of the embassy for Schengen visa applications is usually up to 15 days according to the applicable regulations, in exceptional cases longer. In addition, there are usually 2 days for the transport of the documents between VisaMetric and the embassy and 2 to 3 days for the return of the passports to the applicants. Overall, a processing time and shipping of the application to VisaMetric must therefore be expected up to 3 weeks. Unfortunately, it is not possible to process individual applications faster.

You can track the status of your application by entering your passport number and the VisaMetric barcode number on the VisaMetric website: (bottom right of the page).

Please refrain from making any further inquiries before the specified deadline has expired.
