How to Apply for a Schengen Visa (Italian Visa) in Dubai

For us Filipinos, we need a Schengen visa to visit most European countries. In 2007, we applied for an Italian Visa at their World Trade Center office in Dubai, UAE. In 2010, visit visa applications are catered by the third party. Their website is http://www.vfs-it-ae.com/. 


Update 2011: We applied for a tourist visa this 2011 and the procedure is to get an online appointment with VFS to submit the required documents. You need to enter your passport numbers before you can choose an appointment date.

Schengen Visa is valid for

Austria
Belgium
Denmark
Finland
France
Germany
Greece
Iceland
Italy
Luxembourg
Netherlands
Norway
Portugal
Spain
Sweden
Estonia
Latvia
Lithuania
Poland
Czech Republic
Slovakia
Hungary
Slovenia
Malta


Switzerland

Requirements are detailed as well as the fees and office timings in their website. It is better to be at the office before it opens because the waiting time tends to be long. VFS will only check if the documents required are complete.

There is a 30 dirhams charge per passport for the courier and 5 dirhams charge for every applicant to receive SMS alert about the application. The SMS will not mention if the application is approved or denied. It will only basically inform the applicant if the application was sent to the embassy, if the application was received by the VFS after evaluation and when the passport is with the courier for delivery. These informations can also be tracked on their website. It will only ask for the reference number in the receipt.

Courier and SMS services are optional. Also don't forget to bring 1 extra photocopy of the passport of each applicant.

Keep the receipt and the stamped photocopy of the passport. The courier will ask for these on delivery. 


UPDATE:
visa to Italy can now be applied thru Cox & Kings Dubai
