• Type of Visa;
• Seasonality of the visa applications;
• Completeness of the application;
• Needed investigation (interviews, document verification, false information investigation etc.)
Your visa application will be associated with a unique reference number (URN) that will be communicated to you. Using this , you will be able to verify the status of your visa application at any time. The result of your visa (successful or refusal) will be uploaded in the system.
