Welcome to the newly redesigned website of TLScontact. We are looking forward to be receiving you!
Following official communication from the German Embassy, anyone wishing to apply for a Schengen visa from South Africa must now do so via one of the TLScontact visa application centres.
However, you will still be required to pay the TLScontact service fee as part of your visa application.
Germany is gradually lifting travel restrictions and is beginning to process visa applications under certain conditions. Our Visa Application Centre will therefore be reopening from September 30th 2020 for applications for certain visa types.
Our appointment table is now open for you to book a time slot for your appointment.
