VFS Italy appointment booked with incorrect visa category

Post by neesh » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:21 pm

Hi all,

I am in the process of applying for my wife's Schengen visa for our trip to Italy in April. I am a British national and we wanted to apply for a short-stay visa for her under "EEA/EU family member" category.

At the time of completing the online application - i selected "other" for Question 21 ("Main purpose(s) of the journey") - and added "Family member for EU citizen" as a remark.

However when booking the VFS appointment - i somehow booked for visa category "Tourist".

Would this be a problem when we go for our appointment? There are no appointments available for our dates anymore and hence we would like to keep this appointment. But we are unsure if we are going to be allowed to submit the application due to this mismatch.

has anyone got any experience, maybe of a similar situation? any feedback would be much appreciated.

thanks
neesh

I don't think this is a big issue, staff will look at your documentation & treat your application as a spouse of EU national. You will probable only pay the processing fee & not the visa fee.
