German visa application form
If you are looking for a German visa application form you have come to to the right place.
If you are based in the UK then you will need to obtain your German Schengen visa from VFS Global. The German Embassy has outsourced its visa services from 6 June 2012 to the external service provider VFS. If you wish to apply for a Schengen visa you will need to schedule an appointment with VFS and apply in person at their visa application centre at:
The Battleship Building
179 Harrow Road
London W2 6NB
You will need to book an appointment with VFS to scedule a time to go see them to submit your documents.
Please always bring the original + 1 copy of all documents below. Incomplete applications will not be accepted by the processign centre.
A passport with 2 blank pages and residence permit for the UK, both valid for at least 3months longer than the expiry date of the visa. Please note that only passports that have been issued (not extended!) during the past 10 years can be endorsed with a visa. If your passport was issued longer than 10 years ago, please apply for a new passport at your Embassy.
