Visa

Welcome to the online appointment system of the German Consulate General in Lagos.

Booking your appointment will only take a few minutes. Kindly take your time to read the information carefully, as your appointment may be cancelled in case of disregarding the necessary requirements.

  • Each applicant must have a separate booking. This applies also to children below the age of 16 travelling with their parents.

  • In order to avoid any malpractice only one appointment can be booked per person. A new booking can only be allocated after a period of one month. In case you do not show up on the day of your interview the Consulate General has the right to bar further bookings for a period of up to 6 months.

  • In case of incomplete documents you may be rejected on the day of your interview. You are requested to submit your complete documents even if you are a regular visitor to the Schengen states. Please refer to the visa-website of the Consulate General for information on necessary documents.

In the following step, please select carefully the category of the visa you wish to apply for as your appointment booking will be cancelled if you book the wrong category. Applications with bookings in the wrong category will not be accepted. You can select between

  1. Schengen Visa (short-term stay up to 90 days), i.e. for tourism, business or trade fair.
  2. Immigrant / Long term Visa (staying more than 90 days), i.e. for family reunion or for employment purposes in Germany, not for students

Please note  

Immigrant / Long term Visa (staying more than 90 days), only for studying at German universities: please send an email to student@lago.diplo.de requesting a student visa appointment. You MUST attach your admission letter from the university, the proof of your financial means as scanned copies and a copy of your passport data page. The next available appointment will be allocated and an email sent to you.

Please note that due to the unusual high demand the Consulate General can currently only offer a very limited number of appointments for student visa applications. To increase the appointment capacities the German Embassy Abuja will temporarily accept student visa applications upon appointment. Please continue to send your appointment request to student@lago.diplo.de. Your request will be forwarded to Abuja if necessary and you will receive the appointment confirmation directly from there.

Important Notice: The regular processing time for student visas is at least four weeks. So only students with a realistic chance of admission, i.e. with an admission deadline later than four weeks from the appointment date onwards, will receive an appointment. Thank you very much for your kind understanding and cooperation.
