Russia - Schengen visa for the Netherlands waiting time?
I'm in Russia and I submitted my Schengen visa application for the Netherlands through VFS Global. Online it says they're supposed to decide within 15 days but I've been waiting for 17 days (my first appointment was canceled because of quarantine in Moscow, so in reality I've been waiting for almost a month). I asked the embassy and VFS Global but they're only saying that it's taking longer because of the pandemic. Does anyone know what kind of waiting time I should expect? My flight is booked for Saturday. Thank you.

Welcome to Fodors. I doubt anyone on Fodors has any helpful information. 15 days vs 17+ days isn't that big a difference really. And many things are taking longer due to covid issues. If you don't have your visa by Saturday you'll have to change your flight. Good luck.
