Find out where you need to apply

Depending on how your destination country in Schengen has regulated visa submission in your country of residence, you will have to file your Schengen visa application at one of the following:

  • Their embassy
  • One of their consulates
  • A visa center to which the embassy of your destination country has outsourced visa submission
  • The embassy/consulate of another Schengen state to which the embassy of your destination country has outsourced visa submission

By your “destination country”, we mean the country where you need to lodge your application, according to the Schengen rules.

These rules are as follows:

  • If you are going to visit only one Schengen country, file your application at the embassy/consulate/visa center of that country
  • If you are going to visit more than two Schengen countries, file your application:
    • At the embassy/consulate/visa center of the country where you will spend most days if you will be spending an unequal amount of days in each
    • At the embassy/consulate/visa center of the country where you will step first, if you will be spending an equal amount of days in each
