The Consular Section is the biggest working unit of the embassy and with its versatile range of duty, often the first contact point.
One of the main tasks is the handling of visa applications. The members of our staff process more than 25.000 visa applications per year.
Among the tasks of the Consular Section are also family law affairs, e.g. registration of births, name declarations, certification of signatures and copies of for example applications for certificates of inheritance, as well as the assistance of German prisoners and the support of German nationals in emergency situations and intergovernmental legal assistance.
