If you don’t have Ukrainian biometric passport of you are citizen of one of the countries, whose citizen need a visa to enter Germany you can apply for a Schengen visa only in our application center. Further information you can find on the homepage of the application center.

National visa (residence over 90 days and employment)

Please note, that due to the high demand, from November 02, 2020 the online appointment system booking procedure has been changed for national visas (over 90 days stay and employment). You can no longer book an appointment directly in the system. Follow the instructions highlighted below to register to the booking list. Then the date and time of your appointment will be set, based on the records’ chronological order and the Embassy’s availability.

Please, register for the right category. If you register for an incorrect category you will be unable to enter the visa section premises and you will not be able to apply for a visa.

You will not receive an appointment faster if you attempt to register for multiple appointments. You would run the risk of cancelling your first registration and you may get a later appointment.

If you don’t find a suitable visa category in the list, then entry to Germany for this category is not allowed. Please visit the website of the German Federal Police for further information

All appointments are free of charge.

There is no need to involve third-party agencies to register in the appointment system. You will not get a special appointment by using an agency. The German Embassy doesn’t cooperate with agencies.

Please take into consideration that by registering to the appointment list through an agency, your own email address may not be indicated during registration. As a result, you may not be able to control your registration, even if your name will be indicated on the form, as the automatic booking system would send the notifications to the agency’s email address. You may be unable to find out whether the appointment has actually been booked for you or whether the appointment has been cancelled on your request, depending on the agency’s willingness to cooperate with you.

If you would not attend your appointment because you didn’t have access to the agency’s email address, this will not entitle you to a special appointment. The German Embassy in Ukraine urges you to not hand over control of your booking.

You would not benefit from buying the visa appointment from third-party appointment dealers or agencies, it would only lose you money.

The Embassy will notify you of an appointment approximately 2 weeks prior. In the meanwhile, prepare your documents for the interview and take advantage of the huge selection of information on visa procedures on our website. Ensure that during your interview you have all necessary documents listed in the relevant guidelines (Merkblätter).

It is not possible to change the appointment. If you cannot attend your appointment you should cancel it and register again in the booking system. Changing the appointment date and time is not possible.

To prevent abuse of the appointments system, the German Embassy reserves the right to exclude applicants who did not show up for their appointment from making further bookings.
