Dear visitors, if you wish to apply for a visa at the German Embassy in Kabul, please note:
If you follow the link in the top left corner of this page (Visa requirements), you will find information about the different types of visas and what documents are necessary to complete the visa application. Only visa applications containing all the necessary documents can be accepted and processed.
In order to apply for a visa, you first need to book an appointment through our online appointment system. Without an appointment, you cannot apply for a visa.
From now on the appointment system of the Consular Section is being changed:
To apply for a visa for family reunion, every applicant (including children) has to register through the Embassy’s website. The appointment for the application will then be arranged by the Embassy (in chronological order) and the applicant will be informed through an email. During peak times it may take several days or weeks until an appointment can be arranged.
Appointments for visa applications for study, language course, employment or re-entry visas can still be directly booked, as well as appointments for Schengen visa.
If the appointment is booked in the wrong category, the application cannot be accepted and a new appointment has to be booked. Unfortunately, queries concerning appointments cannot be answered.
