German Visa Application Centre
Since May 2011 visa applicants enjoy an improved service for their visa requests at the Visa Application Centre (VAC) under its “WorldBridge Service” brand.
Applicants wishing to obtain a Schengen visa for travel to Germany, Finland, Norway, Slovenia and Austria can submit their applications from Sunday to Thursday between 8.30am and 3.30pm at the VAC.
VAC checks applications and documents for completion for a service fee of QR 140,- in addition to the visa fees. Your application will then be forwarded to the German Embassy for visa processing.
VAC also handles an appointment system for the German Embassy to further facilitate an orderly interview process and avoid unnecessary waiting times at the visa section of the Embassy should an interview be required.
Moreover, passport re-collection at the VAC has become more convenient.
Additional services such as passport photographs, photocopying, SMS- notifications and issuance of a travel health insurance are available for an extra fee. Interested applicants can also enjoy a premium service in a Business Class Lounge environment for another extra fee.
To further improve customer convenience, the VAC provides an online appointment system for applicants to book an appointment before applying at the centre to submit the necessary documents.
The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Doha advises all Schengen as well as Transit visa applicants to submit their visa paperwork at the WorldBridge Visa Application Centre.
Note: Applications for a national long-term visa (e.g. to obtain a residence permit for Germany) must be submitted directly at the German Embassy.
