Visa Information

Please note we have changed visa service provider. The Embassy commenced visa service colaboration with VisaMetric on 17 January 2019.

Detailed information on how to apply can be found here.

If you reside in Scotland or certain parts of northern England you can file your visa application at the VisaMetric Visa Application Centre in Edinburgh from 17 January 2019. Click here for more information.

Please check the consular district map, if you are not sure whether you have to apply in London or Edinburgh.


In case of an exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union without a withdrawal agreement (“no-deal Brexit”) the rights of British citizens and their family members to freedom of movement within the Union will no longer apply. This also includes the family members of German nationals residing in the UK under freedom of movement rules.

This means that in case of a “no-deal Brexit” any Schengen visa issued to a family member of a British or German citizen (on the basis of EU freedom of movement rules) will cease to be legally valid the moment the UK’s membership in the European Union ends. In such case the visa will therefore no longer be recognized as valid for entry into Germany with immediate effect and irrespective of the validity dates stated on the visa.
