Please note the following important information. Visa information and direct entries to the visa categories can be found below.


Payments for all services of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany Yaoundé (e. g. visa fees, passport fees, expenses, etc.) can only be made at the counters provided for this purpose on the premises of the consulate and always against a receipt!

Payments do not speed up processing and do not result in your request being given priority! Please contact the Embassy immediately via the contact form if you are requested to make payments without a receipt or if services are offered to expedite requests. Your report will be treated in strict confidence.

Important Notice for the Prevention of Fraud

The Embassy informs that there is no cooperation with private companies or service providers who arrange work, training or study places or offer any services in the context of visa procedures. The Embassy urgently warns against the utilization of services of private companies regarding visa procedures. Any people using them do so on their own risk.

Contact requests

Information of any kind is free of charge. Please inform yourself on our homepage before using the contact form! Requests for information available on our homepage will be deleted and will not be answered. Always quote your reference number when making enquiries.
