Online Appointment Booking System for the Embassy and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland.
The German Mission in South Africa is pleased to announce the opening of visa application centres in Centurion, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.
This service is operated by INTERGATE VISALINK CC, a private Cape Town based contractor that handles the German Embassies' and the Consulates' Schengen Visa applications.
The system is designed to assist travellers in booking a visa appointment at his or her convenience, to provide information about the required documentation and especially to reduce waiting periods in the visa application centres.
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 user-pays phone service. You can reach the Service Centre on the following phone number: 0861 00 22 45 (from within the borders of South Africa) and from Germany +49 (0) 40 6755 9549. If you are calling outside of South Africa, please use the telephone number +27 (0) 21 712 1600.
Operators at our Services Centre will provide you with information about the application procedures, documents needed as well as the necessary fees.
