For non-EU citizens who are unsure if they require a Schengen visa to travel to the Schengen Area, please click on Do I need a visa? to find out.

Family members of EEA/EU and Swiss nationals are eligible to apply for a Schengen visa as a family member of an EEA/EU or Swiss national. This means they are required to submit fewer documents than regular tourists and are exempt from paying the visa fee, if they are traveling together with their EEA/EU or Swiss national family member. Eligible family members include spouses, parents, children, and registered partners.

Customers who are traveling without their EEA/EU or Swiss national family member cannot apply as a family member and must apply as a tourist. This means they need to provide all the required documents and pay the applicable visa fee.

As of January 1, 2021, British residence permits are no longer classified as Article 10 or 20 residence cards under the visa code. Article 10 and Article 20 residence cards are documents issued under EU law (the Free Movement Directive) by an EU or EFTA member state or Switzerland to third-country family members of EU/EFTA/Swiss nationals who are exercising free movement rights in a member state other than their own nationality. Since the UK is no longer a member state as of December 31, 2020, British residence permits do not fall under this category.



In order to be eligible to submit a Schengen visa application, customers must meet the following criteria:

– Hold a valid passport or travel document.
– Hold a valid UK residence permit. If the customer holds a short stay visa for the UK (C type visa), they must apply for a Schengen visa from their country of residence.
Applying for a short-stay visa can be categorized into various types: Tourist (including Minors), Visitor Family/Friends, Business, EEA/EU and Swiss national family member, or Airport Transit

Documents Required

Please note that the list of documents provided below is not exhaustive, and the customer may be asked to provide additional information or documents if requested by the Mission.

For non-vaccinated travelers or those who have received vaccinations not recognized by Malta, it is necessary to complete the required form. You can access the form by clicking here.

Both the standard documentation and supporting documents must be recent, meaning they should not be older than one month, and must be provided for every Schengen visa application.

Customers are required to bring and present their original documents, but they only need to submit photocopies unless the requirements specifically state that an original document must be submitted.

Before gathering the necessary documents mentioned below, we strongly advise customers to carefully review the requirements outlined in the Overview section. This will ensure that they meet the eligibility criteria for the chosen visa category.

  1. Visa application form (original) – Click here to access the form.
  2. Passport (original and photocopy) – Your passport must be signed and have at least 2 blank pages for visa purposes. It should also be valid for a minimum of 90 days beyond the return date of your trip to the Schengen Area. Additionally, the passport must have been issued within the last 10 years on the day of leaving the Schengen Area. If your passport is extended, it may still be valid, but if it is older than 10 years, it is no longer acceptable. In such cases, you will need to apply for a new passport.
  3. Photocopies of previous Schengen visas – If you have any previous Schengen visas endorsed in an old passport and issued within the last 3 years, please provide photocopies of these visas, if applicable.
  4. UK Residence permit (original and copy) – You must provide the original and a copy of your UK Residence permit. This permit should be either endorsed in your passport or issued as a Biometrics card. It must be valid for at least 30 days beyond the return date of your trip to the Schengen Area. Please note that a C type visitor visa is not acceptable.

Applicants who possess an outdated version (Pre-Brexit) of the UK Residence Card, which includes the label “Family Member – EU Residence,” must also furnish a Share Code as proof of their immigration status. These cards were originally intended to be replaced by the new BRC, which indicates “EU Scheme Pre-Settlement” or “EU Scheme Settlement,” but they are still in circulation.

It is important to note that EU/EEA family member residence cards issued prior to Brexit are only valid for re-entry into the UK if the individual has applied for pre-/settled status. To substantiate their EUSS Status, it is necessary to obtain and present the share code generated by UKVI at the time of submission.

Please ensure that the photograph provided is an original copy.

Processing Time

Customers are advised to submit their Schengen visa application up to 6 months before their intended travel date to the Schengen Area. It is important to note that the minimum processing time for a visa application is 3 weeks. Therefore, customers must allow sufficient time between their appointment date and travel date for the Mission to process their visa application. However, it is important to understand that delays may occur, and we cannot guarantee the exact return date of the visa application.

To ensure a smooth and timely visa application process, it is of utmost importance that the application is complete, and all documents submitted meet the requirements set by the Mission. Failure to do so may result in unnecessary delays.

Customers should also be aware that during peak seasons such as Easter, Summer holidays (July and August), and Christmas, appointment slots are quickly filled as the Mission can only process a limited number of visa applications daily. Additionally, closures and holidays of Mission may further extend the processing time.

Therefore, we strongly recommend the following to all customers:
  1. Book your appointment as soon as your travel plans are confirmed.
  2. Ensure that all documentation in your visa application meets the requirements set by the Mission.
  3. Allow sufficient processing time for the Mission to review your application.

For customers submitting their visa application in our satellite centers in Manchester or Edinburgh, please note that an additional 2 days should be calculated into the minimum processing time. This is because the application will first be dispatched to the London office, and then forwarded to the Mission in London the following day.

During the visa application process, the Mission may request additional information/documents or invite the customer for an interview. It is important to understand that this may cause delays, and applicants must accept responsibility for any resulting delays in the visa process.
