All visa applicants are required to book an appointment. Due to high demand, there may be a waiting time of up to 3 months. Do NOT book a flight before booking an appointment.
Please note visa services have been outsourced to VisaMetric, an external service provider. If you wish to apply for a Schengen visa you will have to schedule an appointment with VisaMetric and apply in person at the Visa Application Centre.
In exceptional humanitarian cases (death or life-threatening illness of close family members in Germany or similar) and if no appointments are available at the service provider at short notice, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please elaborate on the kind of emergency and attach suitable evidence (medical certificate, evidence of relationship etc.). Please make sure to include your phone number that we can use to contact you.
In cases of extreme urgency ONLY, please send your emergency request via our contact form at the top of this page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
