Right now, you must apply for a new visa, and it doesn't look like fees are refunded or waived: Is a visa fee refundable? Visa fees for visas that have not been used by COVID-19 cannot be refunded. A new application must be submitted. I have not travelled to the Netherlands yet. Can the period of my already issued visa be extended? The duration ...

Insurance premium You can cancel the insurance at any time before the coverage begins. The company website says Before the beginning of coverage, ... you can request a full refund at any time. Visa application fee Your visa fee is probably lost, but you might try asking if you can adjust your application dates. I wouldn't hold my breath. Air fare ...

It’s ok to just not travel. There’s no need to cancel the visa. Edit: the answer would be different if you intended to apply for another Schengen visa Applying for a Schengen Visa even though there's still an existing unused visa

No, foreigners staying temporarily in Germany are not required to report or register their whereabouts. Had you stayed in a hotel or another kind of commercially operated lodging, the accomodation would have been required to collect and keep records of your personal data, but these records are also only handed out to the authorities on request and not by ...

In Germany, all residents have to register their place of residence with the municipal authorities. A special rule applies to hotels and hostels. Tourists with extremely long stays might come under this regulation, but not for less than a week.

This is a very dynamic and unprecedented situation, so nobody knows for sure what will happen. So below is more of an opinion rather than known fact. As it currently stands, travel into the 26 EU states as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, is prohibited for 30 days and as such travel is banned for all non-EU citizens or residents (...

I have heard that I can travel only if my residence card expires in 6 months. Is this true? No, it is not true. The Schengen Borders Code (Articles 6 and 8) stipulates only that a residence permit must be valid and that this must be checked. It does not state that it must be valid for a specific time on the date of entry. Article 6 Entry ...

I will take the liberty to write a general answer of the entire EU and for any length of stay, as I think it might be useful for other people with this question: Stays under 3 months Some EU countries require you to report your presence to the relevant authorities (often the town hall or local police station) within a reasonable period of time after ...

A refusal for being a security threat is a Bad Thing™. You'll have to enlist the help of a competent lawyer specializing in these matters if you ever want to enter the Schengen area again. See the linked question for more details on this. Now, in theory, Australia is free to make its own determination as to whether you're a risk or not, so you could still ...

There are restrictions in place, but AFAIK no current restrictions for Indian citizens/residents applying for Dutch visa. On the other hand, the Czech Republic closed their visa processing centers in China and Hong Kong several weeks ago, effectively preventing residents of China from applying for a Czech visa. It is at the moment difficult to predict what ...

Now that we are in the brexit transition period, is it the case she can still apply in this capacity? Yes. The withdrawal agreement specifies that EU law still applies in the UK and to the UK until the end of the transition period. This means that citizens of the UK are still treated as EU citizens for the purpose of EU law, including the free movement ...

The Schengen visa would need to be issued for multiple entries as per Romanian regulations https://www.mae.ro/en/node/2040 which say: Romania acknowledges as being equivalent to its own national visas, for transit and for stays up to 90 days per period of 180 days the following: The two or multiple entry short-stay visa issued by a Schengen member ...

This question is similar in nature to the one linked below and should also be read. In general, it is not advised to finalize travel arrangements before a visa is issued. Some application forms explicitly state 'if known' when asking for an accommodation address, others don't. The Schengen Border Code does not state that suppling an address, upon ...

There is nothing you need to get to host someone. If she stays for more than 6 weeks your landlord might have a say, but otherwise not.

As far as I can see, both in the Schengen Border Code and Visa Code Handbook, the term threat to public health is only applied against an applicant as reason not to grant a visa or entry (i.e. the applicant is the cause of the threat) . In the scenario that the Schengen Area itsself poses a threat to public health (to which a visitor would count as someone ...

R.B, I also submitted my application last Friday in London for France and I got my passport today with a rejection piece of paper. I've had 5 Schengen visas in the past and I was surprised when I saw that it wasn't issued this time. The piece of paper said that due to the current situation and the outbreak of the virus, the consulate decided to not issue ...

I applied for Netherlands visa from Pakistan, today I received the passport with a visa for 45 duration Multiple entry until 22 May, 2020. I must say that they cannot reject the visa on the base of corona.

In practice, the most important thing will be proof of health insurance that covers any eventualities during her stay, because German health insurance is usually either connected to employment contracts, shared inside a family or taken out privately for longer terms, neither of which apply here. There is the infamous "Verpflichtungserklärung für einen ...

The question is, why to you believe that proof of accomodation must be supplied at all (i. e. is mandatory) when making the application? The application form for a D-Visa states that you you should give the address if known (for the C-Visa application, this not stated that clearly). D-Visa Application form (December 2019) Question 6: Vorgesehener ...

We had one hotel reservation, where we had both email and phone numbers. So we only put that on the online application. And all AirBnB reservations were handover to the embassy with the completed application. Edited. We can't proceed the online application after the accommodation section unless you put both email, telephone, first and last name of Airbnb ...
