The German Embassy Nairobi has outsourced the application process for Schengen visa to the external service Provider TLScontact on 01 May 2022. All applications for Schengen visa must be handed in at the Visa Application Centres of TLScontact in Nairobi. Please refer to their website which will guide you through the application process.
The German Embassy Nairobi introduced two convenient appointment waiting lists where you can register for an appointment to apply for a national visa. On the first waiting list you can register for an appointment for all national visas except the family reunification to persons entitled to protection. On the second waiting list you can register for an appointment to apply for the family reunification to recognized refugees or asylum seekers. You cannot book appointments directly anymore. This easy registration procedure allows us to allocate you an appointment as soon as it becomes available in the order of the registrations received.
Please continue here to register on the respective waiting list.
Since 1 August 2018, close family members (spouses, unmarried minor children and parents of minor children) of a person eligible for subsidiary protection in Germany are able to apply for a visa for the purpose of family reunion. Eligible family members are kindly requested to register for an appointment to submit their visa application.

Please access the service through the Embassy’s or Consulate’s homepage only in order to prevent problems with access. Most importantly,
- please do not use bookmarks from earlier visits to the site
- please do not use the browser’s automatic address-memory function, that is, the function where a previous URL appears when you type the first letters
- please do not use any links in internet services not provided by the Federal Foreign Office
- please open the online appointment system in one browser window or tab only
- please do not use the browser’s back button.
The online appointment system is compatible with all standard browsers, but works best with Firefox or Internet Explorer. If you think there are problems with the browser you are using, please try again with Firefox or Internet Explorer as your browser or use another computer, e.g. one belonging to relatives, friends, a hotel or an internet café. However, other factors can also cause problems. Please see points 3 and 4 below.
(3) Other factors
Virus scanners, firewalls, other security products, company guidelines and the internet connection all determine how fast you can access the service and whether you can access it at all. If you experience problems, please try to access the service using another internet connection.
(4) Smartphone/mobile devices/small-screen rendering
The pages can be displayed on browsers on mobile devices. Depending on the device’s resolution, however, you may find that you need to scroll in landscape (horizontal) mode or zoom in. You may also find the display too small to read. This makes the booking slower and less comfortable, but it is still possible.
