    nope...
    VFS deals with Schengen applications.
    Manchester is the nearest.
    10 quid for processing for EU

    our nearest is croydon--so £80 for 2 cheap day off peak train tickets, £30 day return ferry tickets, plus bus / taxi to vfs office. all for a poxy visa.

    will my wife still need a shengen visa after she gets her UK passport ? ( assuming we wont all need one by then )

    If she has U.K. passport then she will travel like you @bigmac.
    When we applied schengen Visa we applied for 6 months but only granted 3. I have known people only granted 14 days especially on first schengen Visa application.

    just makes it bloody expensive to go sit on a different beach for a few days.

    It does. But gets you out of being in the same area, same beaches and you can sample the local culture if your that way inclined.

    I thought I read somewhere that you can get a German Schengen visa online by post ?

    Think it’s cause they do biometrics there. I agree that would be easier though
