  • Apply at least 5 months before intended travel.
  • Be accurate and specific in completing your application. Avoid mistakes. If needed, attach an additional explanation letter.
  • Attach evidence of your previous visits to the EU and of your intended return trip to your home country.
  • Acquire a police clearance, if possible.
  • Bring all documentation proving your home country connections. Suggestions include: past visas, bank accounts, family, professional position, home ownership, and marriage license.
