The Consular Section of the German Embassy wishes to point out important new steps when booking online appointments for consular services and visas.
- With immediate effect there is an additional box in the online booking menu into which applicants will have to enter their passport number a second time.
Due to security concerns and in order to help avoid multiple appointment bookings by applicants, the passport number stated in the appointment confirmation and the actual passport number will be cross-checked. Entrance will be granted only to those applicants whose numbers match.
The Embassy asks for the understanding and cooperation of every applicant in order to avoid long waiting periods for an appointment in the future.
- The necessity of every applicant having his or her own appointment in his or her individual name remains unchanged.
- We always strive to accommodate all visa appointment requests. However, we are bound by the available personnel and infrastructural resources.
If no appointment is available in the booking system, we are fully booked. However, please check the appointment system regularly, since appointments might become available again due to cancellations.
