I am applying for a Schengen Visa for Switzerland at London. To submit my application, I can choose to go to the VFS Visa Application Centre or the Embassy of Switzerland directly. I wonder which option would result in getting back my passport faster.
I know that the VFS Centre will deliver my application to the Embassy by the end of the day of my appointment, which means this method will be one day slower than going to the Embassy. However, the VFS Centre can return my passport using a courier, while the Embassy will only use regular postal service. If I collect in person, at VFS I can collect on the same day when my visa is processed, but at the Embassy I can only collect on the next day because the Embassy is only open in the morning.
So which way do you recommend if time is my top concern?
