in sharp focus and clear
of high quality with no ink marks or creases


The photographs must: show you looking directly at the camera
show your skin tones naturally
have appropriate brightness and contrast
be printed on high quality paper, and at high resolution

Photographs taken with a digital camera must be high quality colour and printed on photo-quality paper.

show you facing square on to the camera, not looking over one shoulder (portrait style) or tilted, and showing both edges of your face clearly

be taken with a plain light-coloured background

be taken with uniform lighting and not show shadows or flash reflections on your face and no red eye

the photograph must show your eyes clearly with no flash reflection off the glasses, and no tinted lenses (if possible, avoid heavy frames— wear lighter framed glasses if you have them)

make sure that the frames do not cover any part of your eyes.

Processing Time

In principle, a visa application should be lodged at least 15 calendar days before the intended visit (as this is the normal processing time) and cannot be lodged earlier than three months before the start of the intended visit. It is the applicant's responsibility to take the necessary precautions to respect the deadlines where an appointment system is in place.

An application lodged less than 15 calendar days before the intended departure may be accepted, but applicants should be informed that the processing time may be up to 15 calendar days. If the applicant insists on making the application, he or she should be informed that the final decision might be taken after the intended date of departure.

Example: A Turkish national decides to book a special last-minute offer for a skiing vacation in Austria with a departure within two days, and only the day before departure realizes that he needs a visa to enter Austria. In this case, the Austrian diplomatic mission or consular post could refuse to deal with the application.

A holder of a multiple-entry visa may apply for a new visa before the expiry of the validity of the visa currently held. However, the validity of the new visa must complement the current visa, i.e. a person cannot hold two uniform visas valid for the same period of time.

Example: A Moroccan lawyer representing a gender equality NGO who frequently participates in meetings in various EU Member States holds a multiple-entry visa which expires on 31 May. She applies for a new visa on 15 April.
If a new visa is issued, it should be valid from 1 June, and in such a case, the visa holder would be entitled to enter the territory of the EU Member States on the basis of the first visa that will expire during the stay and leave on the basis of the new visa.
