Applicants are free to apply up to 180 days prior to their date of travel. However, all applications must be submitted at least 15 days prior to the proposed date of travel to accommodate any unforeseen processing delays. This period is extended to 9 months in the case of the seamen.
In most cases, you will be informed within 15 calendar days whether your application has been successful. Sometimes it can take up to 60 days in case it is necessary to make a more detailed examination of the application.
