What do I do if I can’t find a Greece Schengen visa appointment in New Delhi?
The last thing you want is to not find an appointment when you have already made all the other arrangements. But don’t worry, there are still ways you can tackle this situation.
Change the main destination of your travel
In case you are travelling to multiple countries at a time, the Schengen state you will spend most of your time in will count as your main destination. Countries like Greece, France, Spain, etc. usually have a very high inflow of tourists every year. And these consulates most definitely get booked two to three months in advance.
Instead, you can try applying for your visa in a consulate that doesn’t have such a high inflow of tourists. Some of these countries are Slovakia, Malta, Luxembourg, and Iceland.
You can just create a temporary travel plan to show the consulate to get your visa approved. Once you have your visa, you will be free to travel in any of the Schengen states. You can take a look at our prices if you want temporary flight and hotel bookings.
