VISA PROCESSING TIMINIGS
NO visa can be issued before 10 days from the day of transmission of the visa request into the Schengen system (and not from the date of the submission of the application to VFS or this Consulate General). Since all documents attached to the visa applications have to be thoroughly investigated and verified, applicants are therefore recommended to submit their application at least 25 calendar days before the expected date of departure in case of "frequent travellers", and 40 calendar days in case of "first time travellers".
Scope of travel (official duty, attendance of conferences or training) has no impact whatsoever on the technical delay of visa issuance.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Kindly be informed that a separate courier fee N6,798.00 will be paid per applicant with effect from June 18, 2010.
How to find out if your visa is ready
