German Embassy, Consulate and Immigration Office Directory

Below, you will find a list of embassies and consulates where you can apply for visas for Germany from overseas. Also listed are immigration offices in Berlin that you can apply at if you are from Japan, South Korea, Canada, Australia, Israel, New Zealand or the US. If you meet our eligibility requirements, then we would love to help you navigate the German visa process whether you are applying in Germany or from overseas.

 

Can I apply for a visa in Germany?

If you are from Japan, South Korea, Canada, Australia, Israel, New Zealand or the US you can either apply for a national visa for Germany from overseas or you can apply for a residence permit after arriving in Germany. If you are a citizen of one of these countries, you can enter Germany visa-free for a 90-day period and then apply for a residence permit in Germany. One exception is the South Korean Working Holiday Permit, which must be applied for in South Korea

In addition, if you are an EU citizen, a national of the EEA states of Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland, or of Switzerland, you can enter Germany with just a valid passport or ID card. You are entitled to live and work in Germany without a visa. After arrival, only Swiss nationals are required to obtain a residence permit from the local immigration office.

 

Citizens from all other countries not listed above must apply for a national visa before entering Germany at a German embassy overseas.
