VFS Global will be responsible for accepting applications for short stay Schengen visas to The Netherlands from applicants residing in Chennai and neighbouring areas. All visa applications will continue to be assessed and processed by the Consulate General of The Netherlands in Mumbai.
The key features of the centre will be longer operating hours, a dedicated Web site for easy access, visa information, including visa types, the applicable fees and application status, professional and responsive staff dedicated to handle visa queries, a dedicated call centre unit, e-mail support and door-step delivery of passports.
The service would attract a nominal service fee payable at the JVAC at the time of submitting the application. The Chennai office will remain open from 08:00 hrs to 15:00 hrs.
