Information on visa and consular services
Depending on the purpose and duration of your stay in Germany you can either apply for a short-term "Schengen visa" or for a long-term "German national visa" for stays over 90 days.
The German Missions in India have started outsourcing the handling of SCHENGEN visa applications to VFS Global.
Now, every client will have the option to submit his/her visa application at a nearby Visa Application Centre.
Please select the appropriate consulate for submitting your visa application from the flash-based interactive map or webpage of German Missions in India.
