Important information for visa applicants:
Please note that only passports that have been issued during the past ten years can be endorsed with a visa. If it has been issued before that, your passport cannot be accepted. This even applies in cases where the validity has been extended by the authorities of your home country. If your passport was issued more than 10 years ago, you have to apply for a new passport at your home country's Embassy/Consulate before making an interview appointment.

Regional Specifications

You are required to make an appointment for passport and visa applications as well as for notarizations/certifications. Appointments are also required for full notarizations ("Beurkundungen" according to German law, e.g. in inheritance or real estate matters). Find more information here:
