Obtaining a Schengen visa
An application for a Schengen visa can be submitted by a foreigner who has approved a residence permit in the Republic of Serbia. If you plan to enter several countries of the Schengen agreement, it is best to apply to the Embassy / Consulate of the country that will be the first country of entry into the Schengen area.
When applying for a visa, you should keep in mind that you must personally attend the submission of the required documents during the scheduled meeting at the Embassy/Consulate. It is recommended that you make an appointment at least 15 days before departure, as this is the time required for your application to be reviewed by the relevant institution.
All Schengen countries have more or less the same visa requirements. However, there are small differences, depending on the Embassy / Consulate, regarding the required additional documents in addition to the main identification documents and your current economic status and grounds for a residence permit.
List of documents for obtaining a Schengen visa:
1. The completed application form must be signed in the appropriate places.
2. One full-face passport photo on a light background. The photo must have been taken recently. (Some consulates take photos on the spot)
