Our cooperation with the German Embassy and Consulates in China has ended.

Since February 20, 2019 TLScontact is no longer accepting visa applications on behalf of the German missions in China.

Applicants whose applications are still processed by the German missions should contact the German missions regarding their application status.

The website and locations of the new service provider for visa applications are published through the website of the Embassy of Germany.


Can someone else apply for a visa on my behalf?

Personal appearance is mandatory for all visa applicants unless you are exempted from biometric data capture.

If you are exempted from biometric data capture, a representative can apply on your behalf. The representative has to provide a signed letter of authorization (please click here to download) as well as the original and copy of his /her ID card. The representative cannot be a minor.
