Interview Scheduling & Submitting of Visa Applications:
Schengen Visa (i.e. short term visa up to 90 days within six months) applications will be handled through one of the VFS application Centers:
VFS Schengen Visa Application Centre, 61, Janadhipathi Mawatha, Colombo 1 or
VFS Visa Application Centre, 89 Brown Street, JAFFNA
The Embassy recommends all Schengen Visa applicants to submit their application at the VFS German Application Centre which is checking, whether your supporting documents are complete, will - if necessary - schedule an appointment at the Embassy and forward your application with your passport, fee and supporting documents to the Embassy.

The same regulation applies to long term visa applicants (more than three months). Both groups need to schedule an appointment through the Embassy's online system.
