All applications for visas of citizens of the Republic of the Philippines require approval of the Schengen partners and the competent authority in Austria.

Exceptionally, when additional documentation is needed in specific cases, the period for the decision may be extended up to a maximum of 60 calendar days.

The Embassy reserves the right to request further documentation or an additional interview in individual cases.

*certified by the Department of Foreign Affairs and subsequently legalized by the Austrian Embassy in Manila. A consular fee in the amount of 40 Euro per document, payable in Philippine Pesos, applies. Due to required verification of the Documents' authenticity the process of Legalization may take several weeks.
