Booking an appointment can be done fast and conveniently by yourself. This service is offered free of any charge. If desired, an appointment can also be booked by a trusted third party (e.g. the person inviting you or your business partner in Germany etc.).

The Consulate General Karachi is exclusively responsible for applicants with residence in Sindh and Balochistan. Applicants living in other regions of Pakistan need to book their appointment using the Islamabad Embassy’s appointment system ( Applicants living in Afghanistan must book the appointment via the website of the German Embassy in Kabul (


Please remember that you cannot use your appointment for a different visa category. If you wish to apply for a different visa category than a Schengen visa, your appointment will be forfeit.



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