The Embassy of Federal Republic of Germany in New Delhi announced the outsourced visa application process to make it more convenient for travellers visiting the country for short term. This new service is being run by VFS Global, the contract partner of the German Embassy.
Travellers from India and Bhutan to Germany will not require to apply for the necessary Schengen Visa (short-term visa) at the German missions in India any more.
In future, visa applicants can file their visa requests in sixteen Visa Application Centres in India and one in Bhutan. This new service-oriented and customer-friendly service will avoid major travel expenses, unnecessary time spent and speed up the whole application process.
