TLScontact hereby informs you that our center provides a complete service for the submission of visa applications, including assistance in completing the forms. Appointments must be taken through our center where the documentation will be checked on behalf of the consulate. It’s recommended to submit the application without the interference of third parties as such mediation can have a negative impact on the outcome of the visa. Anyone claiming to facilitate granting the visa through alleged connections with TLS or the consulate is lying and committing a fraud.

  • Dear travelers, please note that a minimum of 20 days is required between the submission of your visa application and the return of your passport to TLScontact.
  • Please note that the presence of children under 12 years is not mandatory at the level of TLScontact.
  • Children must have individual passports, even if they are traveling with their parents.

(For example the original stamped bank statement in one file, and copies of it in the other files).

We remind you that making appointments is free, the use of an intermediary may harm your visa application, and as a result, TLScontact declines all responsibility for the consequences incurred. Please visit the Scam Alert section.
