Visa requirements - online appointment system
Online appointment system
Appointments for visa will from now on only be available through an online-based system. Bookings via e-mail or telephone will no longer be possible. Only book an appointment once you made sure that you will be able to keep it.
It is crucial to book the visa appointment as early as possible and well ahead of the scheduled travel. The Embassy is unfortunately not able to respond to individual appointment requests via email or telephone due to the high number of applications. In the interest of all applicants who have booked their appointment in time, such requests will no longer be processed as of 1st May 2015.
For medical emergencies, applicants can contact the Embassy via the special email address mask%27%diplo%27%de,visaemergencies . Letters from a doctor or hospital confirming the urgent nature of the medical request as well as passport copies of the applicants have to be attached.
Please note: Appointments frequently become available on a short notice when they are canceled by other applicants. Regular checking of the appointment booking website is therefore advisable if an earlier appointment is desired.
Please fill in the form with the utmost attention to detail. Even minor deviations in the passport number or the spelling of your name can lead to you being denied access to the visa section. Exceptions will not be made in order to prevent misuse.
Attention: Misuse (for example double bookings or fake appointment confirmations) could lead to an exclusion from the appointment system and entry into a blacklist in order to shorten waiting periods and protect honest clients.
Do not let third parties book the appointment for you. You will be held responsible for any resulting errors and / or misuse.
Tips for the application process:
Apply in time! - Plan ahead for waiting periods!
Due to huge demand and the limited human resources of the visa section waiting times for an appointment can reach several weeks especially during the main travel season from May to October. The processing of a Schengen visa for Omani citizens takes at least three working days. For other nationals it can take up to 10 working days. We therefore urge you to plan your trip well ahead of your travel date.
The application must be complete with all required documents!
Please make sure to only submit a completed application including all required supporting documentation in order to allow for a smooth and successful handling of your case. Missing papers could lead to a rejection of the application.
Attention: Subsequent filing of missing documents is not possible. You will be required to make a new appointment (waiting time!).
Please check the embassy´s information flyers before applying. They contain detailed information on the application process. Please be aware that the requirements stated are subject to change. Please check the website regularly to inform yourself about recent or upcoming changes.
