Take a look again at the link I provided you in post number 11. Page down until you come across the bit that says 'Application by post' .
Oh and an apology for you remarks might be in order.
Thanks, Phetchy, that's very helpful. Still not a big fan of sending such important documents by post as it makes me very nervous. But, that's life.
Minky sent off to German Embassy for Schenghen last Wesnesday - will let you know how it goes....
Thanks, Nic. When and what you both going for, if you don't mind me asking?
I also note that we are unable to apply until within three-months of the travel date.
Not really sure to be honest, I'd like to go away for a few days as I got two weeks hols to take from work by end of Dec - its a case of 'use it or loose it'. Thought about going to the Xmas Markets in Cologne for 3 days - then again maybe just drive to Bruge or Gent as its down the road from Kent so to speak....
Got to be a good time to go to Germany - they need all the money they can at the moment to bail out the bubbles :-)
How long does the visa last for, Nic? As the questions of duration seems to be quite specific to a few days to 90 days. Is it just easier to apply for 90 days?
Have you sent both your passports to the German Embassy?
Jan and I went to Germany earlier this year. Visa took 3 days by post. Down load application form from German Embassy and send registered post with a pre paid return registered envelope. Make sure wife signes all the relivant boxes . It is free for spouses of EU Nationals. We, as British passport holders do not require a visa. We flew with Ryanair ,cracking deal to Breman £105 for both of us.
Did however find Germany expensive.
To be honest Tony Minky done it, I know she sent both our passports off (Special Delivery with Special Delivery return envelope inside £10 in all) and she thinks it was for 90 Days I don't think we'd get more than that even though its our 2nd Schenghen (First one she got from Spainish Embassy in Bkk).
I think so mate "crash and burn" comes to mind and now Asean are thinking of having a common currency
Passports came back this morning - 90 day multi entry (30 day max stay), so in all cost us a tenner for special post....and done in 5 working days, gotta love the German efficiency.
Nice and easy then Nic or should i say Minky .
Will have to quiz you more about the 90-day visa, Nic, and what we should put on the application form.
If we are going to go to all the trouble we might as well get the longer visa and go to Germany again before the visa expires, just for the hell of it and makes for a nice long weekend.
Why just go to Germany Tony - the Visa is Schenghen so can have a trip to Germany then to any other of the Schengen countries....
Minky is very happy...she yelped "Yippeeeee I'm free to go anywhere in Europe for 90 days", guess it is kind of a sense of freedom - trouble is someone has to fund it :-(
Very true, Nic. We should consider a trip to gay Paris. Lovely city.
