The processing time for a short-term (Schengen) visa is up to 15 calendar days. Do keep in mind that, in individual cases, the processing time can be extended to 30 or even 60 calendar days.

The Embassy is committed to issuing visas as soon as possible, provided they have complete and satisfactory information about the applicant.

The processing period can be extended to 30 days because of the number of applications received by the embassy/consulate or the uniqueness of your situation.

It can take up to 45 days for exceptional applications to be processed by the embassy/consulate.

Do you need a medical test for the tourist visa?

There is no need for a medical exam and this is only for a period of less than 6 months. Longer permit categories, on the other hand, would necessitate a mandatory examination. Even so, for your own protection, it is recommended that you get a medical checkup before travelling to another country.
