Visa appointments for applicants from Syria

The German Embassy in Damascus being closed, Syrian nationals and Palestinians with Syrian travel documents as well as third party nationals living in Syria or applying for Family Reunion visa to a Syrian Refugee / Subsidiary Protected can make their appointments for a visa application at the German Embassy in Beirut (location: Rabieh) at this site. Please read the notices on the following pages carefully.

This service is free of charge.

Caution: Many applicants informed us that several local „Visa Service Agencies“ claim to be able to organise an appointment for payment. However, these agencies only send falsified e-mail-confirmations of appointments, or demand horrendous prices of several hundreds of Euros for proper bookings. In the interest of all applicants these agencies should not be used. This Embassy does NOT work with private offices for arranging appointments, even if they claim it.

Attention: The embassy has to send the names and passport details of all applicants to the Lebanese border authorities until 3 pm of the previous day. Entering to Lebanon in order to apply for a visa is only possible if the name is on the list. We hereby inform you that we are unable to give you accurate details on where and how this data is being used. If you do not agree that your details are being sent, please use the cancellation link in the email with the appointment date. If you would like to keep the appointment and are able to enter Lebanon in another legal way, cancel the appointment and send us an email to visa@beir.auswaertiges-amt.de with the subject: STORNO CANCEL and your previour registration number. In that case you keep your appointment, but your details will not be shared with the Lebanese border authorities (and therefore not show up on the list). Please be informed that this needs to be done latest one week prior to the appointment.

Thus, starting on 01.01.2020 the Embassy will only allow persons to enter the visa section for their appointments if their personal data matches the data given in the appointment booking 100% (especially passport numbers and birth dates).
