Electronic devices (PCs, cell phones, smartphones, smartwatches, PDAs, dictation and recording devices, etc.) cannot be taken into the building either. Lockers are available for this purpose, which you can use at your own risk.

Only healthy people are admitted. They must wear mouth and nose protection and, if necessary, agree to temperature measurements. Please note the hygiene rules when entering the building.
Be on time for your appointment to avoid clashing with other applicants. In the event of delays, you must expect that your appointment will have to be rescheduled to another time and that it will not be possible to make up for it immediately.
Admission is only granted to those people whose presence is absolutely necessary for the official act (e.g. person who needs the passport or visa and, in the case of minors, also the parents). Admission of another supervisor is only possible if there are compelling physical limitations.
Check your documents in advance and make sure that you have all the necessary documents with you in the ORIGINAL to ensure quick processing.
