Simple steps to obtain a Schengen visa to Germany

You can find here all relevant information which is needed to apply for a short stay visa to Germany and the Schengen countries if Germany is your main travel destination.

TLScontact operates the official visa application centres in China on behalf of the German Diplomatic missions. The use of our service is voluntary and is provided at an extra cost. Applications can also be submitted directly at the visa section on appointment only. For more information please visit the website of the German Diplomatic missions in China.

Applications received by the visa application centre are transferred to the Embassy or Consulate General of Germany, which has the exclusive right and responsibility to check the content of the submitted documents and decide on the visa application. TLScontact is in no way involved in the decision making concerning the visa applications and is at no point informed about their outcome.
