I am applying for a Schengen visa in the US, at the German embassy. We are two adults and our 2 year-old son. Our son is a US citizen, so I believe no documentation is needed for him, though I'm buying medical insurance for him as well. We are eligible for email application, because we had it 2 years back.
I am confused about the fees for both of us. The website says:
Your envelope has to include the visa fee (60,- EUR payable in USD as per the exchange rate of the day you apply - you will be informed about the current equivalent in USD when contacting your responsible mission), your passport and, in case you wish to have your passport mailed back to you via FedEx/USPS, it also has to include a pre-filled FedEx/USPS slip with your address as well as an additional 25,- USD for the FedEx/USPS fee.
If I am sending both applications, all documents and passports in one envelope and expect it back via FedEx/USPS, for what amount should the money-order be made? Euro 60+60 = Euro 120 is considered to be how much in USD?
I am also not clear on the
pre-filled FedEx/USPS slip with your address as well as an additional 25,- USD for the FedEx/USPS fee
Along with $25, what is that slip, which we need to send ?
I used the form at germany.info/us-en/kontakt-formular and still waiting for their reply. I called the San Francisco consulate, mentioned at germany.info/us-en/embassy-consulates but it's not responsive. I know it is Euro 60, but in USD terms, I don't know how much I should send.
