The rule is: one email = one applicant. The only exception is for minors (under-age children), which will apply together with a legal guardian. It is possible to apply for an appointment date by the same email as for the legal guardian.

E-mail requests for an appointment date will be uploaded to one infinite queue based on the date, hour, minute, and second of delivery of the email into the inbox of the Embassy.

The Embassy does not interfere with the order of delivered e-mails in any way, the Embassy does not alter or influence the queue. In case the applicant wants to postpone his given appointment to later date he/she can send an email with such request. If the applicant does not show up for the given appointment, he/she has to request a new appointment in the standard manner.

The e-mail appointement request must contain the following information:

Name and surname of applicant
Type of visa or residency permit he/she wants to apply for
Contact details of the applicant (e-mail, telephone)
