Where do I apply for a Schengen visa?

While a Schengen visa allows you to travel freely within all Schengen countries, and the visa rules and procedures are the same for all Schengen countries, there are rules about where you should apply. Some countries are particularly strict on this aspect and might refuse you entry to their territory if the rule is not respected.

Therefore, if you intend to travel to one Schengen country, that country's consulate must deal with your application.

If you intend to travel to more than one Schengen countries, the application must be dealt with by the consulate of the main destination. The main destination is the destination where you are going to spend the most number of nights during your trip. If you are going to spend the same number of nights in two or more Schengen countries, then you apply with the consulate of the country where you will be entering the Schengen territory first.

In short, you apply at Cox and Kings Global Services Italy Visa Application Centre if
  1. Italy is the only country you are going to;
  2. Italy is the main destination, i.e. the country where you are going to spend most of the time during your trip to Europe visiting several countries;
  3. you have no main destination (you are going to spend the same amount of time in more than one Schengen country) and Italy is your first port of entry in the Schengen area.
