Important information

Dear Visa applicant

As soon as you receive your visa, make sure that all the information it contains is correct.

Check the following:

  • Your valid travel document has a passport number. This number is also indicated on the visa sticker. Make sure that these numbers are the same.
  • You applied for your visa for a specific period or periods. Check that your air ticket corresponds with the entry and exit dates indicated on the visa sticker.
  • Check that the number of entries you applied for (one, two, or multiple) corresponds with the number of entries indicated on your visa sticker.
  • Check that your name is spelled correctly.

Do this yourself in order to avoid any problems or extra costs arising when using your visa. If you think that the information on the visa is incorrect, tell the Embassy immediately, so that any errors can be corrected.

How to read the visa sticker DURATION OF STAY………DAYS indicates the number of days, you may stay in the country / area issuing the visa. The days should be counted from the date you enter (the entry stamp) to the date you exit (the exit stamp), i.e. both days included.

The period of time between “FROM …UNTIL” is usually longer than the number of days printed in the “DURATION OF STAY” field. The difference in period is meant to give you flexibility to plan your entry into and exit from the issuing country /  area, but your stay in the visa issuing country /  area must never exceed the exact number of days in the “DURATION OF STAY …DAYS” field. No matter how many days you have stayed in the visa issuing country or area, you must leave no later than the date printed in the “UNTIL” field.”
