Welcome to TLScontact
The TLScontact application procedure, established in cooperation with the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Shanghai, aims to provide the best visa application service. Our aim is to help you prepare your visa application and assist Embassy and Consulates General of the Federal Republic of Germany in processing applications in a timely manner.
As a result of the Sino-German Governmental Consultations which were held in Berlin on 10th of October 2014, both governments have agreed to facilitate mutual people-to-people exchanges by simplifying the visa process. China will actively support Germany in its plans to extend its visa service to inner-land China by setting up more visa application centers. It is the common goal of both governments to shorten the visa process for short stay visas to 48 hours in future. Germany and China are willing to grant visa facilitations to frequent business travelers and issue more often long-term multiple-entry visas. The works on the implementation of this agreement have already begun. The German Visa Processing Center will announce the simplified visa process in details after the final confirmation.
