German Consul General Margit Hellwig-Bötte, together with the Head of the Legal Department and the Visa Section Jürgen Pengel, visited the vfs visa center in Bangalore on 5th August. After a warm welcome the team of vfs showed the facilities of the visa center to Mrs Hellwig-Bötte and Mr Pengel.
At the vfs visa center, just as at the other visa centers in India, visa applicants can submit their applications for business and tourist visa to visit Germany. The applications are then sent to the visa section of the German Consulate.
Every day between 120 and 220 applicants submit their visa applications at the vfs center in Bangalore alone. These numbers reflect the growing ties between India and Germany.
