We can apply for your visa through VFS Global in London and get appointment within 1-2 days (subject to availability). The Italian consulate processes applications for most nationals in 3-5 working days. However, for some nationalities, they take 10 working days to process. Please contact us to check about this.
We will check documents and prepare the application before submitting to the visa application centre. You will have to provide all the supporting documents including passport and UK residence permit card at least 1-2 days before appointment in our office. Our representative will be present at the visa centre for submission of application and to assist with biometrics.
Please carefully check your jurisdiction before making your application – Scotland and Northern Ireland are part of the Edinburgh Consulate General’s consular district.

Please note the documents cannot be older than 1 month at the time of submission to VFS Global.
