Important Information on the Appointment System

Please read the following information carefully.

Registrations in the appointment system and assignments of appointments are free of charge and available at any time.

Payments in any way or form do not accelerate the processing and do not lead to a preferential treatment of your request!

See below for answers to the most frequently asked questions about the appointment system.

For your own safety, we strongly recomend to not use “service providers” and their e-mail addresses for booking appointments. If your appointment is lost due to the use of a “service provider”, we do not accept any liability. You will have to re-register and wait for the whole appointment waiting period.


Yes. Please keep in mind that each applicant needs a separate appointment to enter the German Consular Service.

You can register at the above indicated internet address for an appointment for the visa application, a German passport or a consular service. Our system registers you on a waiting list. As soon as the next date is available, it will be automatically booked for you and you will receive a booking confirmation per e-mail.

Please note that only justified emergencies can be answered. All other requests on special occasions cannot be answered.

Please register only once. The appointment system is based on the principle of a waiting list so that there is no advantage to book more than one appointment. In case of multiple booking all registration will be deleted from the appointment booking system so that the waiting period for other applicants will not be unduly delayed.

Appointments with evidently false inputs (passport number, for example) or which are booked more than once will be deleted from the system. In that case, you need to register again.

If you receive this message, you certainly booked already an appointment with this passport number or you did not come to an already booked appointment.
The passport number is blocked during three months. You can book a new appointment only afterwards. Please make sure that you cancel a booked appointment if you are not able to keep it.

No, a subsequent change of your data by our staff is not possible. We ask you therefore to enter the required data accurately.

Attention, an appointment confirmation is required for appointments from January 1st, 2024!

You must confirm your appointment within seven days of receiving your appointment reservation e-mail. Please note that unconfirmed appointments will be automatically cancelled after the deadline. The appointment will then be irretrievably lost!

Confirmed appointments that are not kept will result in a block in the appointment system.

If you no longer need your registration on the appointment waiting list or an assigned appointment you can cancel the registration or appointment by clicking on the cancellation link listed in your booking confirmation.

Please bring the old and the new passport to the agreed appointment. If you cannot present your old passport, you must cancel the already existing appointment and apply for a new appointment with the correct passport number.

Incomplete documents will lead to the refusal of your application.

You have the opportunity to withdraw your application free of charge during your appointment. If you sign that you intend to withdraw your application, you will not automatically receive a new appointment. In that case, you will have to register on our website again.
