Appointment-System of the German Foreign Office — Beirut

Please choose an area

Visas for work, job seeking and qualification purposes (for Lebanon and Syria)

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.

 

 

If you have your permanent residence in Lebanon or Syria and your like to apply for a visa for the purpose of work, job-seeking, research, qualification, vocational training or any other kind of work related visa to Germany, please enter your personal data in the appointment list below. 

Applicants who have their lawful and actual residence in Lebanon will be given an appointment in our Visa section in Dekwaneh.

Applicants who have their lawful and actual residence in Syria will be given an appointment in our Visa section in Rabieh.

Applicants who do not (actually) reside in either of the two countries are kindly referred to the German Embassy or Consulate at their place of residence (e.g. applicants who live in France should apply for their visa through the German Embassy in Paris, applicants who live in Dubai should apply through the German Consulate General in Dubai, etc.).

The embassy might ask you to prove your place of residence by handing in further documents (e.g. entry and exit registry issued by the Lebanese/Syrian authorities).

Visa appointments for applicants from Lebanon

 

****Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our visa section is currently closed. We do not open new appointment slots for the time being. Thank you for your understanding.****

 

 

Via this page, only persons who can prove that they are residing in Lebanon permanently may book an appointment.

 

Applicants who do not hold Lebanese citizenship, can only book their appointments in this category, if they are holders of a Lebanese residence permit (Iqama) and actually reside in Lebanon permanently.

 

Lebanese citizens who permanently live outside Lebanon should book their appointment and apply for their visa through the German Mission (Embassy or Consulate) at their place of residence (i.e. if you reside in Dubai, please apply for our visa at the German Embassy in Dubai; if you reside in France, please apply for your visa at our Embassy in Paris; etc)

 

Booking a visa appointment through our appointment system is free of charge.  

 

Unfortunately we have detected a high number of double or multiple appointment bookings in recent weeks. 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). There will be no exceptions. Therefore, please make sure to double check your data entries thoroughly bevor submitting your appointment request.
