Schengen visa to Italy from UK

edited December 2014 in Visa and Passport
Hi all, 

I'm an Indian passport holder with a 6 months UK business visa, staying in London as of now. Could you please suggest if I can apply for a Schengen tourist Visa to Italy from the Italian embassy here in London?

Any reply will be greatly appreciated as I'm in utmost need of the visa. 


  • Yes, you can apply in London.
  • Thanks Anya for your quick reply. I was worried as the VFS customer service told me that I cannot apply with the Business Visa type C.
  • Generally if you're resident in another country (and not just visiting for a couple of weeks) it's okay to apply for the visa there, although there are a few exceptions.
