Feel the exhilarating thrill of exploring fjords or stand and gape in amazement at the northern lights. Norway is a country of natural marvels that never cease to amaze. Norway issued close to 3000 visas from London in the year 2017, so getting you a Norway Schengen visa appointment in London might be slightly difficult.
You also have to get all the required documents collated once you’ve got the appointment.
Don’t worry though! in this article, we’ll not only guide you through the steps involved in booking you Norway Schengen visa appointment, we’ll also tell you what you should do if you can’t book an appointment.
How to get Norway Schengen Visa appointment in London – The basics
Like many Schengen nations, Norway has also outsourced its visa application process through VFSGlobal.
To begin the application process you will first have to visit the VFSGlobal website.
Scroll down to the “Schedule an appointment” tab
Click on the link that says “Appointment Link”
You will be redirected to the registration page, where you have to register as a “New User”
Once you fill in the requisite details, you are ready to book your Schengen visa appointment.
VFSGlobal is quite adept at handling over 30 requests a day, so that shouldn’t be much of a problem. VFSGlobal charges a “service fee” of $25 for services rendered.
What to do when there is no appointment date available for Schengen visa?
If you are not able to book your appointment in London, you could try these alternatives.
Change your jurisdiction
If there is no slot available in London, you can try changing your jurisdiction to Edinburgh. This doesn’t always ensure success because other consulates are also usually booked in advance.
Change the main Schengen visa consulate
Most of the bigger Schengen states are booked out a few months in advance. Changing your primary consulate to a nation with a lesser flow of visa applications could help your chances of getting an appointment.
As is always the case, you will be required to
show a tentative travel plan within that country. We can provide you with temporary flight and hotel bookings that you can use.
Getting a Schengen visa for one nation grants you with the freedom to move within any of the Schengen states. So you could plan your trip in such a way that you land in your main Schengen state, stay for a day and then get on the next flight to Norway.
Alternatively, you could land in Norway, mention the concerned officials that you will be spending a few days in Norway and then moving on to your main consulate nation.
Wait for someone to cancel their Norway Schengen visa appointment
Definitely a risky method, as you may end up waiting for a very long time. But desperate times call for desperate measures, what you do is you keep multiple tabs open for all the consulates in your country and then wait for someone to cancel their Schengen visa appointment. Also, a friendly reminder, don’t forget to refresh.
This may be a tiresome method, but many persistent customers have successfully implemented this method. If you don’t want to do it yourself you can hire the services of our dedicated team to do it for you. Just fill our Schengen visa appointment form and we’ll get on the job.
