Germany visa appointment from Pakistan

Acquiring an appointment for a Germany visa is a straightforward process. You can accomplish it independently through online channels or with the assistance of a reliable third party based in Germany, such as an inviting individual or your business partner.

In specific circumstances, it is possible to submit your documents and apply for a Germany visa directly at the embassy in Islamabad without requiring a prior appointment. These circumstances include:

  • in medical emergencies
  • holders of official passports with Note Verbale
  • upon invitation of the German Government or an organization fully funded by Federal funds, such as GI, DAAD, GIZ, etc.

To submit your visa application without a scheduled appointment, you have the option to drop off your documents during the designated hours of any working day, specifically from 7:30 AM to 10:00 AM.
