Important for third countries (non-EU/non-EEA, exception: Switzerland):

As an applicant from a third country (non-EU or non-EEA), the 1 March is the application deadline for you. The reason for this is that it sometimes takes longer until international documents can be checked or lead times are necessary for the application of a visa or a residence permit.
