Processing time on visas is currently 45 days
Due to IT-issues as well as heavy application and call volume the current processing time for visas is now 45 days. The consular officers spend a significant amount of time answering phone calls and e-mails. We therefore ask you to please not contact us in order to check the status of your application, unless the regular processing time (45 days) and shipping time (an additional 1-3 days) has been exceeded, so that we may focus on case processing.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
