Please note that the appointments offered on this system are the earliest and the only appointments available. Due to a high demand there is sometimes a waiting period for appointments for up to 3 months. Therefore we are usually unable to offer you a short term appointment. We ask you to make an appointment as early as possible to arrange an appointment. Please note that we operate a block appointment system whereby several applicants are booked in the same time slot. Therefore please expect waiting times on the day.
