A reminder that visa applications can legally take up to 90 days to process from the day you submit your application to the Consulate.
While in the past we have seen a number of applications come back faster than this, the Consulate in New York has asked us to remind students of this timeframe. The Consulate is unable to expedite any application, as they are all processed centrally at the Ministry of the Interior in Prague.
DO NOT DELAY IN SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION. As soon as you have all of the required documents, APPLY! Remember that the Office of Global Services is here to assist you, so if you are struggling or have questions about the process don’t hesitate to email/call/come to walk-in hours (firstname.lastname@example.org ; 212-998-4242 ; Tuesdays-Thursdays, 1pm -4pm ; 561 LaGuardia Place).
