Must I book an appointment ?

A visa appointment is necessary to ensure the best service possible. The online appointment system provides a better and faster service to travellers and has therefore resulted in positive feedback from many customers since its introduction.

Before you start the application process online please read the below:

  • Please note that the Intergate Visalink System is designed only for the processing of applications for a short-term visa (Schengen visa) which allows a stay of up to 90 days in the Schengen states. Applications for visas for longer stays in Germany (e.g. for studies, work, family reunion) cannot be completed using the Intergate Visalink system. You will find the application procedures for long term visa here.
  • Applications can be made within 90 days of your scheduled departure date and we recommend that you apply in ample time. Please note you will need to make sure that your appointment date is at least 3 weeks prior to your scheduled departure date.
  • The processing time for visa applications takes two weeks according to the Schengen Visa codex. The German Missions and external service provider are committed to keeping the processing time to a minimum. Due to the biometric data collection (fingerprints and photographs) and the technical infrastructure, a minimum of seven working days is required to process all visa applications . Please note that Intergate Visalink cannot be held responsible if your visa is not ready in time.
  • The passport must stay at the Embassy / Consulate for the entire duration of the visa application process.
  • Please only hand in complete visa applications and checklists at the visa application centre, the Embassy/Consulate will not accept incomplete applications.
