- Germany’s third-party visa processing services will expand location options for Indian nationals
As of November 27, 2022, VFS Global, a worldwide visa processing service provider, announced that Indian nationals will now be permitted to schedule appointments and submit Schengen visa applications to all visa application centers run by VFS Global in India, regardless of the applicant’s place of residence in the country.
These measures will not apply to applications submitted for national visas (D-visa categories), such as those offered for student, employment, or family reunion purposes.
What are the Changes?
VFS Global will permit Indian nationals to schedule appointments and submit documents for Schengen Visas to travel to Germany in any VFS center in India. According to the announcement, this will allow applicants to obtain an appointment even if the closest VFS Global center is booked and significantly reduce visa processing wait times.
