Appointment waiting list to apply for a visa for family reunion or marriage (for stays exceeding 90 days)

Dear Sir or Madam,

on the following pages you can register for an appointment to apply for a long-term visa for family reunion or marriage (for stays exceeding 90 days).

If your registration was succesful, you will receive a confirmation email with your reference number. As soon as your appointment was allocated – this may take at least one year - you will receive a second email (appointment email) containing further details about date and time of your appointment. This email will include two links, one to confirm the appointment, and one to cancel it.  

Appointments will be allocated chronologically. While entering your data, please note the following:

  • Each applicant over 18 years must have a separate booking. Underage children only need an appointment if they travel alone.
  • When registering, please select the number of people who are going to visit the Visa Section under "number of visitors" (e.g. wife + 3 children = 4 visitors). Entry can only be granted to direct family members who are applying together for family reunion.
  • All information must be entered in Latin letters.
  • Please enter all your data correctly and without any mistakes, as you will only be admitted to the Visa Section of the Embassy if your name and passport number as entered in your passport exactly match the information provided in your registration.
  • Your passport number must be entered in capital letters and numbers, as mentioned in your passport, e.g. KN5120391.

Please make sure to enter your email address correctly; otherwise you will receive neither a confirmation email nor an appointment! If the confirmation email is not in your inbox, please check whether it has been sent to your spam/junk folder.
