Short-term and Long-term visa

Chengen (short-term) visa (applicable after April 5, 2010)
Application for a Schengen (short-term) visa can be filed within 3 months of the planned trip. It is recommended not to file a visa application later than 15 days before the trip, as it cannot be otherwise guaranteed it will be reviewed in time. In most cases, visa applications are processed within 15 days. In individual cases, the review period can be extended up to 30 days and in exceptional cases up to 60 days. Holders of multiple Schengen (short-term) visa can file a visa application before this visa has expired, provided it has been valid for at least 6 months.
Long-term visa
Allow several months for processing of a long-term visa applications and file a long-term visa application sufficiently in advance. The legal period, during which the Alien Police must review the application, depends on the purpose of stay:
2 months: study, research
3-4 months: employment, entrepreneurship, participation in a legal entity, family unification

What do I need to submit upon filing visa application?
The nature of supporting documents depends on the type of visa for which the application is filed. The basic requirements, which generally need to accompany visa application, are the following:
· form – filled out completely and legibly;
· photograph;
· travel document – valid in all Schengen states and more than 3 months after the intended departure;
· proof of accommodation (hotel voucher, confirmation of accommodation provider);

· Invitation – official invitation on prescribed form authorized by Alien Police (due to its formal nature it replaces some or all supporting documents stated in points 4-6);
