Subject [ApacheCon EU] China: Visas to Germany
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2012 02:34:42 GMT

I have heard several Chinese speakers who want to present at the 
ApacheCon EU 2012 are having problems with getting their visa in time.

Indeed, the recent situation was very bad because the German embassy 
doesn't have the resources to handle the strong demand for German visas 
in China, e.g. they have only two telephone lines to make appointments 
for submitting visa applications.

Just last week the German embassy started to outsource the visa 
application process to a private agency which will certainly make 
everything easier, e.g. they are checking each application for 
completeness and correctness while previously visa applications were 
declined deliberately without giving any information about what went wrong.

The website of the visa agency can be found here:
The service is available in English, Chinese and German.

Additional information from the German embassy (in Chinese) can be found 

Hope it's not to late.
