PLEASE NOTE: the ONLINE visa application form will reduce the amount of time an applicant has to spend at the visa counter. After the visa application form has been filled-in online, it has to be printed, therefore a printer must be attached to the computer. When the application is printed, a barcode is generated and printed automatically on the application form. On the other hand, the visa application form in pdf format can also be downloaded and filled-in (also by hand), but it will cost the applicant longer time at the visa counter.
