Is a visa needed in addition to an approval for admission?

07.07.2023 - Question

Yes. A visa is required to enter Germany. You can apply for a visa from a German mission. The German Embassy in Kabul is currently closed. The visa procedure can therefore only be conducted in a transit country, after having left Afghanistan. Currently, the only exit route is via Pakistan as a transit country. The German mission abroad and the other authorities involved will try to complete each procedure quickly.
