national visa - permanent longer stay (more than 90 days)

 Please note that there are currently still considerable waiting times when booking visa appointments!

 These are the main reasons for the shortage of appointments:

 1. The trip is planned at too short notice

 For trips that can be planned in advance, arrange for an appointment as soon as possible.

 2. Appointments lapse because booked appointments are not cancelled or people do not show up on time.

Arrive at the Embassy well in advance of your booked appointment (preferably as early as 30 minutes before your appointment).

 If you cannot keep a booked appointment, please cancel it immediately by using the cancellation link (will be sent to you automatically with your appointment confirmation).

 3. Mainly incomplete documents are submitted, so that the application cannot be accepted or processed further.

 Ensure that you are able to present all the documents mentioned on the checklists, completely and in the order mentioned.

 4. Appointments are booked in the wrong category, causing additional delay in those categories. Please be advised that assistance cannot be given to travellers booking an appointment with the incorrect appointment slot / category.


 The Embassy has no influence on this. You will make a significant contribution to improving the appointment situation if you book your visa appointment early, arrive on time and bring complete documentation.
