#RumoursAboutGermany

As part of its work to counter the rumours and untruths circulated by human traffickers, the Federal Foreign Office has launched a poster campaign in Afghanistan. Using posters and social media, the campaign is geared to Afghans who are considering fleeing to Germany. The aim is to prevent them risking their lives by deciding to flee to Germany on the basis of false information.

Important note:

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.
