From 31.12.2020 Ireland will move to Level 5 restrictions. Please read our FAQs before you book an appointment or travel to the Embassy.
With effect from Saturday, 30th January, 2021, a general travel and entry ban has been imposed from Ireland to Germany. Up to the 3rd of March, 2021, a visa can therefore only be issued in exceptional cases.
The travel ban also applies to national visas for establishing residence in Germany.
For more detailed Information, please have a look at our FAQs.
Short-term visas are also called “Schengen-Visa” as they allow a stay up to 90 days in a 180-day timeframe in the Schengen area. A short-term visa is needed for any stay shorter than 90 days.
If you intend to stay longer than 90 days, you would have to apply for a long-term visa (also called “national visa”).
