Visa and payment information


Normal process time for incoming visa applications is 3-5 days.
If items are missing in the application, it will take longer time. 
Please note that the return postage is no longer included in the visa fee. You need to prepare a return envelope with a pre-payed label from Postnord or DHL Express. If you put normal stamps on the return envelope, it will be sent back by normal post without tracking-ID. 
The PostNord label needs to be ordered online. If you buy it at a PostNord office, they will register the label as used, and we will not be able to use it again. 
In November and December please allow a few extra days due to the large number of incoming applications. 
For faster service please see Express visa information. For the express visa option always make an appointment by email.
