Please only book an appointment which you are actually able to keep. If you cannot keep an appointment that has already been booked you are kindly asked to cancel it online. This will help us to reduce long terms of waiting and leaves a gap for emergencies and applications of high urgency (cases as such usually involve illness or death of a close person). If you do not show up for your appointment without previous cancelation, the system does not allow rebooking during the next weeks!!! Please note that the improper use of the booking system will lead to the cancellation of the appointment and to the blacklisting of your email address. We strongly recommend to personally book appointments without making use of an external service provider. The booking of an appointment is free of charge.
