Good day, I would like to apply for a Schengen Visa for Business travel to Poland for mid April please. I have a current Schengen Visa that will expire 2 days before my travel date in April. Please assist


Good day, Poland Universities are accepting students and issue out Acceptance Letters, tuition fees paid in full but student study visa date UNAVAILABLE. I feel this in not fair, if the embassy in South Africa cannot cope with the volume of applications, maybe they should communicate with the universities in Poland to not accept applications. Or else they the booking of the dates should be done via VFS, and maybe then conduct personal interviews at the embassy. I feel the booking system at the moment via e-konsular or the recently introduced mobile phone, the worst nightmare, the line is continuously busy. Please do something. I love Poland and its a beautiful country and the level of education is great!
