Tips for Getting a Visa without Problems

With the closure of schools and the holiday season, the summer season opened quickly. With the summer season, we see that the increasing trend in travelling in the last few years has not slowed down in 2024. This situation brings a serious increase in visa applications. Sertan Aslantürk, Regional Vice President of VFS Global Turkey-Azerbaijan, gave information about the three main points to keep in mind when planning a trip this summer. By following these tips, you can ensure that your visa application process is stress-free and you can go on your trip with pleasure and peace of mind.

Plan Ahead

When choosing your destinations and creating your holiday budgets, research the visa requirements of your destination country. Make sure you have all the necessary documents and information ready before making your application. You can find the list of required documents on the websites of VFS Global or the relevant Embassies and Consulates.

Check Timetables

Embassies and consulates prepare timetables for visa procedures and share these timetables through their official websites. These timetables are very important to help you plan your trip and to ensure that visa applications are submitted on time. However, you should keep in mind that during peak travel seasons such as summer holidays or long weekends, visa processing may take longer than expected. We recommend that you submit your visa application as early as possible to avoid any delays or last minute stress. For example, Schengen countries accept applications up to six months before your travel date. This will give you plenty of time to gather all the necessary documents and make sure your application is complete and accurate.

Use the Right Channels

You can start your visa procedures by making an appointment to apply at our VFS Global Visa Application Centres. We strongly remind applicants to visit to make their appointments through the official channel. Our appointments are made only at We also call for caution against fraudulent organisations posing as VFS Global staff or partners and charging applicants for appointments or expedited visas. VFS Global does not charge for visa appointments. However, for some countries, it may be necessary to pay a set VFS Global Service Fee in advance.
