Welcome to the website of the German visa application centers in Centurion, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.
This service is operated by Intergate Visalink (Pty) Ltd on behalf of the German missions in South Africa.
The system is designed to assist travelers in booking a visa appointment at their convenience, to provide information about the required documentation and especially to reduce waiting periods at the visa application centers.
Our service greatly enhances the efficiency of the application process and provides greater flexibility in scheduling an appointment. Furthermore, our service adds convenience through the possibility of having your passport returned to you by our courier partner.
The requirements to utilise the online service are minimal and include an Internet browser and a printer to print your appointment confirmation and application form.
If you prefer to make an appointment by telephone please call our Call Center where you will be assisted in your language of choice (English, Afrikaans or German).
Operators at our Call Center will provide you with information about the application procedures, documents needed as well as the necessary fees.
Important Notice: INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS CAN UNFORTUNATELY NOT BE PROCESSED BY THE GERMAN AUTHORITIES. If any of the documents you have been asked to provide cannot be presented your application may be declined. In this instance you will be asked to arrange a new appointment, which will incur a new appointment fee.
Please note, that having an appointment does not guarantee that the applied for visa will be granted.
