Schengen Visa Fees

When applying for a Schengen visa there is a non-refundable mandatory visa fee every applicant must pay.

The Schengen visa costs vary depending on the type of visa and age of the applicant as well as some other exceptions stated below in the text. The Schengen visa fee can be paid in the designated consulate/embassy via cash, debit or credit card. However, some consulates may not allow you to pay by credit card.


The Schengen visa application costs include the visa fees payable at the corresponding embassy/consulate when applying.

Schengen Visa Category Fee in EUR Fee in USD*
Adult 60€ 70$
Child between 6-12 years of age 35€ 41$
Child younger than 6 years of age Free Free
Holders of diplomatic, official or service passports traveling for official purposes Free Free
Family member of a EU/EEA national Free Free
Pupils, students and accompanying teachers during a school trip Free Free
Researchers traveling to perform scientific research Free Free
Nationals from, Georgia, Kosovo, Russia, and Ukraine. 35€ 41$

* The applicable visa fee in USD (US Dollar) is as per the current exchange rate. It is subject to change without notice.

Despite of the fact that these fees are static and unchangeable until the Schengen members decide otherwise altogether, there are some categories exempt from paying this amount.

The visa fees may also be waived for participants aged 25 years or less in seminars, conferences, sports, cultural or educational events, organized by non-profit organizations. The decision will be made case by case according to the relevance of the event.

Again, in case the visa is denied there is no refund of the money paid.
