These new regulations imply new demands on the application, meaning that all supporting documents must be handed in along with the Schengen application form.

It is essential that you collect all the required documents before presenting your application to the outsourcing agency, including supporting documents. If supporting documents are not presented promptly, your application may, upon examination, be refused and the visa fee lost. Please note that the requested supporting documents as a general rule are the same at all Schengen Missions in the local area.

From the 01 July 2019, you should fill in your visa application and pay the application fee online using this link. After you have applied and paid the visa fee online, you must print and sign the cover letter from ApplyVisa and hand in supporting documents and supply biometrics at the Visa Application Centre”.
