In case you did receive either a one-year-Schengen visa or two Schengen visas within the past two years for which your fingerprints were taken, you may contact the responsible mission if you’re eligible to send in your application per mail.

Please find the application form as well as the information leaflets regarding supporting documents on the previous pages. Please also consider the checklist for postal applications which you can find here:

Your envelope has to include the visa fee (60,- EUR payable in USD as per the exchange rate of the day you apply - you will be informed about the current equivalent in USD when contacting your responsible mission), your passport and, in case you wish to have your passport mailed back to you via FedEx/USPS, it also has to include a pre-filled FedEx/USPS slip with your address as well as an additional 26,- USD for the FedEx/USPS fee.


Your signature on the application form has to be notarized by a notary public. The processing of your application can take up to 5 weeks starting at the time we receive your application; please allow an additional 2-3 business days for FedEx/USPS.
