Booking of appointments for short-term/Schengen visas (Business, Visit, Tourism) & Airport Transit Visas



Dear applicant,



You are about to make an online appointment for applying for a Schengen visa (category C) or Airport Transit visa (category A) at the German Embassy Islamabad.


Please make sure once again that you have selected the correct visa category. Appointments cannot be used to apply for a different category of visas.


Each applicant needs a seperate appointment. Group bookings are not possible.


You have to enter your correct PASSPORT NUMBER (consisting of 2 letters and 7 digits in a Pakistani passport). Otherwise, entry will not be granted.


Bookings with wrong data (e.g. incorrect passport number) will be deleted.


Please also double-check that you enter your correct email address in the booking process. You need the email-confirmation in case you want to cancel you booking. If you do not state your correct email address and do not receive a confirmation, the next booking will only be possible after waiting for two weeks.





Pakistani citizens have to obtain a visa before entering the so-called "Schengen states". Schengen visas are short-term visas for stays up to ninety (90) days within a period of one hundred eighty (180) days.


Please note that although visas issued by one of the above mentioned Schengen member states are valid for all other Schengen states, you need to apply at the embassy or consulate of the country which is your main destination. The main destination is the country of your longest stay. If your main destination cannot be clearly determined, the country of your first entry to the Schengen states will be competent to handle your application.





As a Pakistani national you require an airport transit visa (that is a visa for a stay within the transit area of an airport, not leaving the airport). For possible exemptions please see Article 3 of the Visacodex.


Please note that a general 24/7 stay in airport transit areas is only possible at the airports in Frankfurt/Main (FRA) and Munich (MUC). It is your resposibility to check well ahead of your trip if your transfer airport has a transit area that is open during your transfer time and if a stay in the transit area of your transfer airport will be therefore be possible or if you need a Schengen Visa.


However, as a Pakistani national you do not require an airport transit visa if you have a permanent residence permit for Andorra, Canada, Ireland, Japan, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, UK, Vatican or the United States of America.
