Please note that you are kindly request to present your application at least 15 calendar days before your departure.
So your documents must remain 15 days at the Consulate General of Italy. Therefore if you start the procedure at the Vfs, do not forget it will be longer than 15 days because you have to add the 2 or 3 days to transfer your documents from the Vfs to the Consulate and the return.
15 days are just an indication, therefore the sooner you start the procedure the better it is.
