Getting the Schengen visa required to go to the European Union (EU) countries has now turned into a complete ordeal. Despite all the fees paid and the long waiting times, the number of negative answers is increasing exponentially. Vacation, business plans turn upside down, NTV reported.
Waiting periods that can last up to 10 weeks, numerous documents collected, visa application fee of 3 thousand liras on average…
All the necessary transactions and payments are made, but those who want to obtain a Schengen visa have been receiving frequent rejections from European countries recently.
The fee paid is also non-refundable.
In the interviews with the consulates, it is said that the applications are delayed due to the high demands. The other reason is that the researches are more sensitive because those who go don’t come back. However, statistics show that there is a decline in number of applications.
The average fees for visa applications to European countries are 120-125 Euros. While going to the UK, the fee varies from 130 dollars to 1105 dollars depending on the visa period, while the visa fees to the USA cost about 200 dollars.
