Current services in the visa and consular section


In the interests of public health and safety, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany must temporarily restrict public traffic until further notice to prevent the outbreak of corona viruses (COVID-19 epidemic).

The following currently applies:

Visa section:

Due to aggravated pandemic situation that also affects German Embassy New Delhi, the visa section will be closed until further notice. Applicants whose appointments have to be cancelled will be contacted directly by the Embassy or VFS Global. Therefore, please refrain from any individual requests by phone or E-Mail.

Consular Section:

Currently only urgent emergencies of German citizens and passport applications can be processed.

You can have copies of your relevant documents attested from the German Embassy for submission in Germany (for study and job seeker / employment purposes only) in an easy, swift process via VFS:

Book your appointment with VFS.
At the time of your appointment, please present:
• your passport and copy,
• proof of need of attestation (e.g. letter from German university, medical council, etc.),
• your original documents and copies at the attestation service counter at VFS.

VFS will then prepare your documents and collect the attestation fees (additional service and handling charges as applicable), send your set of documents to the German Embassy and return the attested copies to you via courier Service.
