Welcome to the website of the German Embassy Manila!
Important notice for all visa applicants !!!
Due to the very high demand we are currently experiencing a difficult situation in booking appointments to submit visa applications at the German Embassy Manila.
The Embassy always provides the greatest possible number of appointments in order to keep the waiting times as short as possible. However, we would like to ask for your understanding that special requests for earlier appointments may only be granted in exceptional humanitarian or medical cases. Only in such cases will you be allocated a special appointment within five business days.
Please be advised that all other requests for special appointments cannot be granted.
New visiting hours from October 4, 2016
From October 4, 2016 onwards our general visiting hours are Monday to Friday from 8.00 to 9.30 hours. Please note that an appointment is necessary for passport applications and civil status matters.
The German Embassy Manila is proud to announce that the Buddy Bears in Manila have finally been dressed for the occasion as the unofficial ambassadors of Germany – promoting messages of peace and friendship. From the Buddy Bear design competition held earlier this year, nine outstanding artists have submitted their entries with various interpretations of German-Philippine relations and cooperation.
