How to Schedule an Appointment


Admission Guidelines and Guidelines on how to schedule an appointment with us for visa and consular services.

Appointment for Schengen Visa Applications

For submission of your Schengen visa application at your nearest Visa Application Centre, please schedule an appointment at the website of VFS Global.
You may also call the VFS Helpline +91 22 6786 6013 for further assistance.

Appointment for National Visa Applications

If you plan to live and work or study in Germany for a period of more than 90 days, you will need a German national visa. Please note that for German National Visas, a personal interview at your German Mission is mandatory.
Applicants can book an appointment for National (long-term) Visas only through the VFS Helpline number: 022-67866013 or by writing an e-mail to VFS at infowest.germanin@vfshelpline.com

All Student-visa applicants are required to book interview slots by sending an email to the VFS at infowest.germanin@vfshelpline.com, and attaching, with the email, a filled-out Student Questionnaire.

Please Note: Every National-Visa applicant may book ONLY ONE appointment with the VFS. Multiple booking of appointments will NOT be accepted by the German Consulate in Mumbai. In case of multiple bookings for one person, the applicant will lose both/all bookings, and will have to re-apply with the VFS for a later appointment.

Appointment for Attestations

You may walk in to the German Consulate Mumbai from Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to attest your documents. No prior booking of appointment is required.
