PLEASE NOTE: Due to aggravated pandemic situation that also affects German Embassy New Delhi, the visa section will be closed until further notice. Applicants whose appointments have to be cancelled will be contacted directly by the Embassy or VFS Global. Therefore, please refrain from any individual requests by phone or e-mail.
The Embassy will however continue to provide emergency services for German citizens.
All travellers from Covid-19 risk countries, such as India, must register on www.einreiseanmeldung.de before entering Germany. As of Tuesday, 30 March 2021, any person entering Germany by plane is to carry a negative corona test and present it to the airline prior to boarding.
The test is to be taken not earlier than 48 hours prior to the scheduled arrival time in Germany. Exempted are children below 6 years.
A 10-day home quarantine is mandatory. To reduce quarantine time, a negative Covid-19 test, taken not earlier than on the 5th day after arrival, can be presented to the local Health Authority (Gesundheitsamt).
Violation of registration and quarantine requirements can lead to a fine of up to 25.000 €.
