Due to a law regulation, the fees for long term visas (over 90 days) will be 50.000 FCFA from the 1st of September 2017. The fees for short term visa (schengen) do not change (40.000 FCFA)!
The Embassy aims at facilitating your entry to Germany. Therefore, all relevant information concerning visa applications, including the application form and information leaflets (pdf documents, free of charge), can be found on these pages.
Please note: The procedure for booking a visa appointment online at the Embassy has changed.
You can register here for an appointment to apply for a visa. As soon as the next free date is available, it will be automatically booked for you and you will receive a separate booking confirmation via e-mail.
Due to the high demand, the delay for an appointment confirmation is currently several weeks. We therefore kindly ask for your patience and understanding that inquieries concerning already registered but not yet confirmed appointment requests can not be answered.
You will be guaranteed an appointment as soon as a free date is available for your place in the waiting list. Registration is free and available at any time.
The online appointment booking system helps us constantly provide the highest possible number of appointments and hence use our existing capacities to their maximum. The highly increased demand for visa appointments in the category worker visa however leads to a shortage in available appointment slots. Despite the efforts from the consular service, the waiting period for visa appointments remains long, currently over six months.
Please register only once.
If you are unable to make it to your appointment, please use the cancellation link in the confirmation e-mail. You must then register again for a new appointment.
We are providing the highest number of potential appointments to keep the waiting times as short as possible. However, we must ask for the understanding that special appointments can only be given in exceptional humanitarian or medical cases. In these cases, you will recieve an answer via E-Mail within 5 working days.
For all other inquiries regarding special dates, we can not answer your inquiry.
