If you have new documentation for your case, you must send it to the embassy.
If the UDI asked you to send us the documentation, you can send it directly to us. You can send it to the person who asked for it, or send it in as described on this page.
You can find information about this under Want to apply: Visit and holiday.
Most people will receive an answer within two weeks of submitting their application to a foreign service mission.
Most cases are processed by the foreign service mission, but if the embassy is in doubt about whether you can be granted a visa, they will forward your case to the UDI.
In such cases, most applicants will receive an answer within four weeks of submitting their application to the foreign service mission.
In a few, very special cases, however, the case will not be processed until up to eight weeks of the application being submitted to the foreign service mission.
Most people will receive an answer within 5 months of submitting their application to the foreign service mission.
