    Once you’ve booked your appointment, you’ll receive an appointment confirmation email along with the letter of appointment.

    If you are part of a family or group, you’ll have to book individual appointments for each member of the family or group. Please note you have to come to Visa Application Center on your appointment time, not at the German Embassy.
