How to easily apply for your Schengen visa

It’s a dream of many to travel through Europe. Images of fairy-tale lands, expansive open fields, cobbled streets, age-old architecture and more known attractions than you could ever imagine, the lure of this magical continent appeals to the eye and soul alike.

Travel through the Schengen Zone countries can be as simple as driving along its winding countryside roads, hopping onto the Eurostar train, or taking a 45min flight to your next European city.

But before you get ready for your adventure, make sure to sort out your Schengen visa, so that you can concentrate on the good stuff!

What do you need to apply?

The documents and other essentials that you’ll need will depend on the country that you’re applying to (make sure to check ahead of time), but all basic Schengen applications require the following:

  1. First and foremost a valid S.A passport (not older than 10 years, with at least 3 months of validity left of it after your RETURN date to S.A.)
  2. Afterward Two blank consecutive pages in your passport
  3. Furthermore Two passport photographs
  4. Similarly A Schengen application form
  5. Above all Travel insurance
  6. Finally Finally Copies of previous Schengen visas (if applicable).

Where to apply?

Well, which country are you going to visit? If it’s just one, then you need to apply to that country’s consulate/embassy.

If, however, you’re planning on visiting more than one country, apply at the country’s consulate/embassy that you’ll be spending the majority of your time in.

Alternatively, if you’re planning on spending an equal amount of time in each of these countries, then it would be best to apply for your Schengen visa with the country that you’ll visit first.

When should you apply?

Ideally, at least 4 weeks before your trip is scheduled. Please note that you should not apply more than 3 months ahead of time.

How long is it valid for?

Your Schengen visa will be valid for up to 90 days, and you can make use of it over a period of six months. If, however, you’ve applied for a multiple entry Schengen visa, you may leave and return over the period of six months, but your combined stay must still not be more than 90 days.

What about payment?

At present, the price of a Schengen visa is 60 EUR (about R935) for a short stay of less than 90 days. You will need to pay upfront, and unfortunately, there is no refund if your application is rejected.

Will I need to make an appointment?

If all goes well with your application up until this point, you will then be called in to do your face-to-face interview at the Schengen country’s embassy or consulate. During your interview, you will also have your fingerprints taken.

How long does it take?

At the least, it takes about 10 working days from the day you apply until the day that it will be ready for collection/delivery.

And you’re good to go!

When everything is ready, you’ll be notified via SMS or email and you can either pick your visa documents up, have it couriered to your home/office (have your South African I.D at hand), or have it picked up at the embassy by your appointed representative (with a copy of your I.D, their I.D and a letter of consent).
