    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am an Afghan citizen and living in Afghanistan. I am traveling to the UK in February 2019 for an official visit to attend a conference in . I would really appreciate it if you could please advise whether I can apply for a Schengen visa in the UK. Is there a timeline that how long it will take to process a Schengen visa and if I can apply for a Schengen visa in the UK, do you have a representation in the Scotland so I can submit my visa application there instead of coming to London. さらに, whether I can apply online or I also can submit hard copy of my visa application with the relevant supporting documents.

    Warm regards

      Hi Naqibullah,

      If the visit is not an official visit, there are only a few countries that you will be able to apply through.

      一般に, the applicant needs to apply for a Schengen visa from his/her residence country (or in your case the closest submission country).

      そうでなければ, on a visit visa to the UK, the following countries accept applications from visitors: Belgium, Portugal and Netherlands

      一般に, the timescales is advertised as 15 working days but as a visitor, this could be longer.

      And yes, we can help if you are also based in Scotland.
