                                               Declaration
I have been informed that an application without a complete set of documentation according to the above
mentioned check list may result in a rejection of my visa application. Besides, the German Consulate General
reserves the right to ask for additional supporting documents in single cases. I understand that even the
submission of a complete set of supporting documents does not guarantee the issue of a visa.

I have been informed that VFS has no right to refuse acceptance of my visa application. I understand, however,
that they have to inform me about missing documentation.

I have also been informed that VFS may only advise me to schedule an appointment. If, however, I insist on
submitting my visa application without an appointment, VFS is required to do so. I acknowledge that the
German Consulate General reserves the right to ask for my personal appearance for a visa interview. In this case,
VFS will schedule an appointment for me without additional charges.
