Long-term visas


Each application requires one individual appointment, regardless of the age of the applicant.


The correct passport number of each applicant must be entered; otherwise no entry will be permitted to the Embassy, or the appointment will be cancelled by the system.

Prior to booking the appointment please read the information about the visa process carefully. You can find this information (list of requirements, application form) at the Embassy's web site:

Please fill in the application form completely and bring all the documents which are necessary for your visa application (see respective list of requirements). Incomplete applications cannot be accepted, and the applicant must book a new appointment.

Depending on seasonal demand it is possible that all time slots are already booked or that they have to be booked long in advance. In order for you to begin your journey as scheduled, please apply for your visa well in advance: visa applications may be filed up to three months prior to your travel date.

Booking your appointment is quick, easy and free of charge. If you prefer, a trusted person may take over the booking for you. After booking the appointment, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail. Please come in person to the visa section and bring a printout of this e-mail. Children should be accompanied by the legal guardians or, if one of the legal guardians cannot come to the Embassy, the person accompanying the child should bring an affidavit. Please note: ensure that you enter a valid e-mail address!

When booking an appointment, you can choose a day and time of your choice (the next free one or a later one): pick a day and a time frame (e.g. 9.00 to 9.30 am). Please understand that we cannot arrange earlier appointments than the dates indicated online (please refrain from e-mail, call or fax messages asking about other appointments). To avoid unnecessary waiting times for you and other applicants please be punctual at the start of the time frame in the message (if your confirmation e-mail says 9.00 to 9.30 am, please be at the embassy at 9.00 am).


No appointment is required if you only wish to pick up your passport! You can pick up your passport on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday between 14.00 and 15.00 hrs, starting on the date which you can see on your receipt.

Please click on "Continue" to book an appointment for your visa application.
