General Visa Information
Visa processing starts only after we have collected necessary documents, interviewed an applicant and received money for the required visa.
Normally it takes 5 working days to issue a visa; express (urgent) visas can be proceeded within 2 working days if no additional questions arise.
Please, note that we DO NOT ACCEPT visa documents delivered to the Consular Section by courier services.
Every applicant shall submit his/her documents and come for the interview PERSONALLY. There are NO ONLINE APPLICATION services available.
The Consular Section NEVER informs the Applicant about the reasons for refusal. In the event of visa denial the consular fee is not reimbursed!
PLEASE, NOTE THAT THE EMBASSY COLLECTS THE VISA FEE AS THE ONLY PAYMENT FOR THE VISA ISSUING!
THE EMBASSY DOES NOT COOPERATE WITH ANY MEDIATORS OR AGENTS ON THE SUBJECT OF GRANTING ANY RIGHTS OR PRIVILEGES WHICH GO BEYOND THESE VISA REQUIREMENTS OR SOMEHOW CONTRADICT THEM!
Submission of the documents: Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until 12:30.
Issuance of the documents: Monday – Friday, from 02:00 p.m. until 05.00 p.m.
