Germany reduces visa appointment waiting time to 8 weeks

Georg Enzweiler, Deputy Head of Mission, German Embassy has said that the waiting time for a visa appointment has been brought down to eight weeks. “We have increased our staff substantially in Mumbai and I think the waiting time has substantially gone down,” Enzwiler said.

“We are working to further reduce the waiting time for visa applicants from India,” he said while talking about the large number of visa applications from India to Germany.

“We are at roughly eight weeks now. We hope to get better with regard to that; we don’t want to invite you here to promote tourism of Indians to Germany and then ask them to apply for a visa three years in advance then you’ll have a good chance,” Enzweiler added.
