** Problems with booking appointments at the VFS Global Application Centre:

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in The Netherlands is aware of the problems in Iran concerning the appointment system at the Visa Application Centre for the Netherlands (VFS Global) in Tehran. In spite of the extra work that both the embassy staff and the staff of VFS Global spend on arranging appointments for particular cases, the situation is not satisfactory: every day the appointment system shows that an average of 40% or more of the applicants do not show up, without cancelling the appointment, spoiling chances for other customers.

Visa applicants who do not attend the appointment as booked, will not be able to book another appointment for a month.

Point of attention

Agents try to sell appointments, pretending they work for VFS Global. These agents are NOT working for VFS Global and let it be clear that at this moment the customer does not have to pay anything to obtain an appointment with VFS Global.

The Embassy clearly regrets the current situation with regard to the no show percentage and makes every possible effort to find a solution. For instance, introducing a prepayment system for visa service fee at the time of scheduling an appointment.
