Regional specifications for the Tri-State area

Important Note: The Consulate General New York can only provide those services to residents of the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut (Fairfield County) as well as Bermuda.
If you do not live in this region, please contact the mission that is responsible for your area. To find out which of the nine German missions in the US can assist you, please use our Consulate Finder.

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.

The Consulate General cannot assume responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or firms whose names appear on the lists, nor do they constitute a recommendation by the Consulate General. If you enter into a contract with any of these service providers, you will be responsible for any and all charges and fees incurred.
