VFS Global to Process Italian Visa Applications for Nepal
The VFS Global office based out of Kathmandu will now aid the processing of Nepali visa applications. This centre will assist applicants with Schengen visas for Italy. These visas would allow them to make a trip to Italy as well as other Schengen countries. These 26 Schengen countries have set a rule that all those applying for this visa, with an intention of spending greatest number of days in Italy or if Italy is the first portal of entry or is the focal destination of their trip, they can apply for a visa to the Italian Consulate General in Kolkata.

On the occasion of the inauguration of the application centre, the Consul General Cesare Bieller said that his office would arrive at a conclusion about the Nepali visa applications through a specialized fast track approach. Beillar also added that priority would be given to Nepali applicants and make sure that the Consulate General would speed up the visa processing on a priority basis and sending of passports to Kathmandu would be done within 10 days.

According to Beillar, in the wake of the Milan Expo 2015 which kick starts on May 1, Italy was expected to show a rise in the count of visa applications. He was of the view that Nepal would have a wonderful cover at this event as a maximum number of Nepali citizens would like to not only visit the Expo but also the famous tourist destinations in Italy.
