Services we offer to our members:

If the applicant's fingerprint has been recorded at least once in the last 5 years (59 months), there is no need for a personal appearance at VisaMetric. Otherwise, applicants must appear in person at VisaMetric to hand in their fingerprints.

Due to the high demand for visa appointments, it is recommended that you make an appointment at least 4 months before the start of the planned trip.
