In the light of the dramatic deterioration of the pandemic situation and the national lockdown in England, Scotland and similar restrictions in Northern Ireland and Wales, we are unfortunately compelled to limit Visa Services at the German Embassy London and Consulate General Edinburgh effective 11 January 2021 and until further notice.
We have therefore cancelled all visa appointments from 11 January 2021 onwards.
The visa acceptance centre of our external service provider Visametric will cease operations effective 11 January 2021 and until further notice.
We will continue to process all visa applications already pending.
As of 11.01.2021, the Embassy’s and Consulate General's visa services will only accept visa applications in humanitarian emergencies. In such a case and in order to arrange for an emergency appointment, please contact the Embassy via email or the Consulate General via email and attach suitable evidence.
Our telephone hotline is currently not operational.
Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy!
Your Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany & Consulate of the Federal Republic of Germany
