The embassy said that I didn't need to appear in person because I had a previous Schengen visa from the French embassy. So I mailed in an application on October 31. The tracking number from the post office says the embassy received the package on November 1st.
It's been 7 days and I haven't gotten a confirmation email from the embassy. Has anyone mailed in an application before? Did you receive an email from the embassy saying they have received it?
(I emailed the embassy yesterday, haven't heard from them yet. Maybe someone who went through this can share their experience?)
