Schengen visa: French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna said today that she was not unaware of the issue of application processing times at many consulates.
“Indeed, they are sometimes too long – we hear it from all sides – but that is because we are coming out of two years constrained by the covid-19 pandemic. My ministry is mobilized to reduce them”answered Catherine Colonna to the question of the deputy Hélène Conway-Mouret, for the Socialist, Ecological and Republican Group.
Several countries, and not only Algeria, have complained about the more or less long periods in the processing of cases, which creates tension and misunderstandings, especially because some people are pressed for time and worries about studies, care or other unmanageable things.
