The German Embassy’s visa section is gradually re-opening.
If you have received notification that your national visa is ready for stamping, you may now submit your passport. This applies to all national visa categories, including students, employment, cook and family reunion.
If you want to apply for a new national (D) visa, you may now book your appointment via our service provider VFS.
Due to ongoing COVID precaution rules and gradual restart of our visa services, please allow some time for visa processing.
Kindly refrain from individual and repeated inquiries.
We thank you for your understanding and patience.
Keeping social distancing and COVID precaution rules in mind, limited consular services with prior appointment can be offered, including passport applications.
In addition, you can have copies of your relevant documents attested from the German Embassy for submission in Germany (for study / 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.
