Starting from 13.07.2020
Simplified prolongation of national visas (D-category) that expired during Covid-19.
If your visa for family reunification, studies, high qualified employment issued by the Embassy or one of the German Consulates in India has expired during the lockdown, you can hand in an application for re-issuing of visa through VFS Visa Application Centres in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kochi until August 13th, 2020 (deadline). After this date, a new visa application with all necessary documents has to be handed in.

    Is this the procedure for new visas or the same for all those whose visas expired? I stayed in Germany for one year and came to India and struck here during lockdown and my visa expired.
