Every individual who is willing to travel abroad to Germany has to take a prior appointment online to submit his/her complete visa application. The visa application has to be submitted at the at the Joint Schengen visa application center at the scheduled time slot only.
The visa application procedure was reformed last year during the month of November after which the candidates are required to provide Biometric fingerprint data along with a digital photograph. In case you have a temporary injury on your fingers or have got henna tattooed then kindly wait for the injury to heal and the henna to fade before you scheduled an appointment.
Kindly read the visa application process properly available online, before you book an appointment for submitting your complete visa application form at the Joint Schengen visa application center. Also arrange all your supporting documents properly.
If in case you fail to show up at the application center during the scheduled time, the online system won’t allow you to reschedule or cancel the appointment and you will have to take another appointment after 24 hours.
Its good to be early. Kindly ensure that you reach the visa application center at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Candidates cannot be accompanied inside the application center. Parents or legal guardians can accompany the children under 18 years of age or candidates who require special assistance due to health reasons or disability.
If in case you are part of a family/group, then kindly ensure that each member has to make an individual appointment. VFS appointment system is compatible with almost all the browsers.
