Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

from 01.06.2023, the processing of visa applications will be completely centralized in the visa section of the Embassy Moscow. The VisaMetric Visa Application Centers in Kaliningrad, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk will remain open, but due to the postal transit times within the country, processing times are expected to be extended.

Please note that due to the high demand, the appointment procedure for national visas will be changed throughout Russia from 01.06.2023. You can no longer book an appointment directly with the visa office or VisaMetric, but register on a waiting list in the appointment system of the Embassy. The Embassy will then assign dates for the visa application in chronological order of the entries.

The appointment for Schengen visas is still made via VisaMetric.

We remind you that the personal data in the Appointment of each of the applicants must be valid in order to be able to submit documents to the Visa Application Center.

Please note that appointment booking at the Visa Application Center is free of charge.

The VisaMetric Visa Application Center is not responsible for visa applications that are submitted to any travel agency or a third party service provider outside of the German Visa Application Center.

Please be wary of scammers who offer their paid services of booking an appointment to the Visa Application Center.

You can apply for a visa at VisaMetric office by booking an appointment on the website.

Important: If you already have an appointment for a Schengen visa at the Visa Application Center, but you want to change the date of submission of documents, please use the following link.

Before booking an appointment please note:

  • You can submit your application for a Schengen visa no earlier than 6 months before the beginning of your trip.
  • Prepare the required documents in advance and submit them on the appointed day.
  • If you already have an existing appointment, a second one cannot be booked with same details.
