Schengen Visa Application Fees

Schengen Visa Application Fees

Schengen visa application fees must be paid by each applicant. Fees are non-refundable under any circumstances.  The fee amount is the same irrespective of the duration or the number of entries of the visa.

The exact amount of Schengen visa application fees may vary based on the visa type, age, and a few other factors.

The exact modes of fee payment may vary by the designated Schengen consulate/embassy, but various options such as payment in cash, debit card, credit card, money order or cashier’s checks may be available.

Fee Schedule

Schengen Visa Category Fee – Euro
Fee – USD
Adult 60 € $70
Child between 6-12 years of age 35 € $41
Citizens of Georgia, Kosovo, Russia, and Ukraine. 35 € $41

The visa fee in the US dollars listed above is according to the exchange rate as of May 2019 and is subject to change.  

If the applications are handled by the visa application center in the country where you need to apply, you will have to pay an additional processing fee to them.

Please add an additional fee of $15 if you want the consulate to mail your passport once your visa is ready.

  • Children under the age of 6 years.
