Important information

In light of the measures imposed by the EU to close all Schengen Borders for Non-EU-Citizens to curb the spread of Covid-19/Corona Virus), the German Embassy has suspended the issuance of Schengen and Long-Term visas until further notice with the exception of Family Réunions and students with confirmation of admission from a German University. Exceptions can only be made for applicants who can demonstrate that there are compelling reasons that justify one of the exceptions to the entry restrictions. The German Embassy in Harare will update the public if there are any changes and will remain closed for the public.

Access will be in emergency cases and by appointment only; walk-ins will no longer be possible. To make an appointment, please contact the Embassy by email at or phone +263 242 308 656 between 9:00 am and 15:00 pm.

In case of emergency, German citizens may also contact the Embassy after 17:00 pm on the consular emergency phone +263 772 568 343.
