Please note that the visa section of the German Embassy in Kabul will be closed on April 20 and 28 and May 8, 2014.
Please note that the German Embassy in Kabul can only accept your visa application if the main destination of your journey is the Federal Republic of Germany.
If your destination is another Schengen country, you must apply for your visa at the Embassy of this country.
The processing time for a Schengen visa takes at least ten days, in case of a long-term visa considerably longer. Visa applicants are informed when they may contact the Embassy again to receive the decision.
Please note that your name must be identical in your passport, Tazkira and in the translation of the Tazkira.
Forms and Leaflets
These are the Embassy's leaflets concerning the different categories of visas issued at the Embassy in Kabul and the application form in PDF-format.
Please note that application forms for Schengen Visas are also available at the visa section - free of charge. Persons outside the visa section offering their services for the visa procedure neither work for nor work with the consent of the visa section. In case these persons do promise any favour regarding the issuance of a visa, please report to the visa officer at the counter.
Visa applicants are kindly requested to verify the entries on their visa sticker immediately after receipt. In particular, the validity period (first date of entry and last day of validity) of the visa should be verified and checked against the duration of your intended stay. Furthermore, you should check that your name is spelt correctly. Any discrepancies should be communicated to the visa section.
