I got 2 visas in 6 months with them where they found appointment slots, managed the process end to end till I got my visa...if you need help with the Schengen process, you won’t be disappointed!
I was finding it difficult to get a Schengen Visa
appointment..they got me an appointment in about a week (even earlier but I couldn’t attend). They also provided guidance. I was really impressed.
I would love to thank you for your help and support during this visa process. It was very seamless and well appreciated. I must commend your
professionalism...thank you over and over again.

You can apply as early as 6 months before you travel. If you have upcoming travel plans within a 6 month window, apply early so you can secure an appointment before your deadline and beat the appointment wait times.

The Schengen visa is a short stay visa and takes the form of a sticker affixed to the travel document.
The definition of “short stay” is a stay of "90 days in any 180 days period". This means that the total duration of stay is of maximum 90 days, in any period of 180 days.
The precise length of validity of your visa is indicated on the visa sticker under the heading “Duration of visit”.
As a general rule, once a Schengen visa application is submitted to the Consulate, a decision is taken by the Consulate within 15 calendar days. This period may be
extended by up to 30 days or 60 days depending on visa centre demand and schedules.
No, the decision on your visa does not come from us but from the embassy. We have no control on the decision from the embassy. We are not able to speed up the decision-making by the embassy. Our job is to help guide you to create the best application to present, and altogether help you build a positive travel history that will make future applications easier and more likely to succeed.
TripVisa does not guarantee an appointment. However, we can quickly see appointments as they become available.
You can use our reservation service to get valid booking numbers for flights and accommodation. However, this service comes at an extra cost of £25 per reservation. Alternatively if you opt for the "EU Pro Plan" you are covered at no extra cost on flight and hotel reservations for the whole year!

This is not realistic. Schengen visas require 15-20 days for processing after the appointment date. An appointment can take a day to a few weeks to obtain depending on the location and demand at that time. Also, the calendar is often open 1-3 months ahead, this means if you start for example in January, the only appointments that could be visible could be for Feb, March or April in some cases depending on the country. There is always the possibility of earlier cancellations that can give you a sooner date, but its best to start early!
