Additional information about visa and permit fees

Please note that the application processing fee is non-refundable and it corresponds to the processing of the application only. It does not guarantee the issuance of a visa or permit.

Please note that the decision to issue a Multiple Entry visa is at the discretion of the visa officer. Although in most cases multiple entry visas are issued when someone applies for this type of visa it may happen that, in view of the particular circumstances of the applicant, the visa officer will only authorize a single-entry visa. Therefore, paying the Multiple Entry fee does not guarantee the issuance of a Multiple Entry visa. Also note that the Embassy cannot issue a visa beyond the validity of your passport.
