Because of the obligation to provide fingerprints, you can in general only submit your application in person at the VFS centres; if you have already provided fingerprints for a Schengen visa during the past 59 months, whether as part of a visa application for travelling to Germany or also to another Schengen country, you can also submit the visa application through an authorised representative or by post.
