Consular Service

Welcome to the online appointment system of the German Embassy in Canberra!

Please choose "Consular Service" if you require an appointment for consular services (except passports) such as certifications of signatures and copies, registration of a birth, pension matters etc.).

Applications for national visas (intended stay of more than 90 days) and visas for the purpose of gainful employment in Germany will still be processed by the Consulate General in Sydney only.

The Austrian Embassy in Canberra is responsible for issuing Schengen Visas on behalf of Germany in all States and Territories of Australia. As a consequence, visa applicants with residence in Australia will have to launch their application for a Schengen-Visa (intended stay of up to 90 days in a 6 months period; e.g. tourist or business visa) personally at Vfs global or the Austrian embassy in Canberra.
