I am Egyptian and I got a postdoctoral research grant at University of Calabria. I have been unsuccessful in trying to book an appointment at Almaviva Egypt website to apply for Employment Visa-D. I attempted to book for many times from 28 February 2024 to now and the site always telling me no appointments available. University of Calabria emailed me on May 2nd that they would not wait any longer and that, if I was not able to get the Visa and start working on the research project on June 1st, 2024 they would cancel the position. I would be grateful if you could help me for getting the required Visa as soon as possible.
