Unified Service and Visa Center launched in Sochi
The Center provides Krasnodar Krai citizens with the possibility to file applications for visas to Spain, Austria, Bulgaria, Malta, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Czech Republic, and Norway, not leaving their habitation area.
Visa centers are operated by VFS Global Company.
The unified Service and Visa Center performs only the administrative function, conducting the check and primary processing of documents. Any decision on issuance or non-granting of a visa is still made solely by the embassy (consulate) of the country the applicant is going to visit.
All rooms of the center are equipped with accessories for handicapped persons. The center has Xerox machines, free of charge Internet terminals, and can also arrange the courier delivery of passports with visas.
