Germany eases visa application process

In future, visa applicants can file their visa requests in sixteen visa application centres in India and one in Bhutan. This new service-oriented and customer-friendly service will avoid major travel expenses, unnecessary time spent and speed up the whole application process.

The Germany visa application centres in New Delhi, Chandigarh, Jalandhar, Jaipur, Gurgaon, Thimpu, Chennai, Hyderabad, Puducherry, Bengaluru and Mumbai are already serving the clients of their respective region. The centres in Goa, Pune, Ahmedabad, Cochin, Trivandrum and Kolkata will be operational over the next two months.

This new service is being run by VFS Global, the contract partner of the German Embassy.
Highlighting the new features of the outsourced visa application process, the German Ambassador to India Michael Steiner said, ‘For most Indians and Bhutanese travelling to Europe, be it for business or leisure, Germany is high on the wish list. Therefore, the visa application process should be as smooth as possible. With our new policy, we take the visa application process to the people’s door. This is good service and customer-orientation at its best.’
