How long it takes to get your Visa?

When you organize your travel from China to Europe, consider the time to get your Visa.
I strongly recommend submitting your request to the Consulate at least 3 month before you want to leave. The outcome comes about 15 calendar days. Plus, when they
recieve your request, they can also arrange a short interview with the applicant.

Remember: even if you have the Shengen Visa you need to take
