New service allows issuing German Visa to Indians in “very short time”: Envoy

Highlighting the visa services provided by Germany to Indian citizens, the country’s Ambassador to India, Philipp Ackermann has said that he is very proud that now, with the current service German Visa is extending to the Indian public, visas can be issued in a very short time.

He also noted that the visas that are now issued in a shorter span of time are much better than a year ago.
While speaking to ANI, Ackermann said, “We have in the last couple of weeks and months improved the visa service as such, that basically, your waiting time for an appointment is between two days and five days, actually.”

“And that’s India-wise. So basically, we are very proud that now with the current service, we are extending to the Indian public, visas can be issued in a very short time, much better than a year ago. And I think we’ll crack this year… I’m very happy to tell you that on the visa front, things are much better than they were…,” the Envoy added.

On the India-Germany relationship, he highlighted how German Chancellor Olaf Scholz visited India twice this year. He attended the curtain-raisier of “Kerala Literature Festival” in Delhi on Tuesday.

“We are looking back at a wonderful year of a fantastic G20 Presidency. India was a very gracious host and managed to come up with a fabulous summit in September. And that brought a lot of German ministers and the chancellor even twice to India last year,” he told ANI.

“So I think we have seen a very lively year in our relationship. We have reached new heights in the relationship and I’m very confident that next year this will continue…” he added.
