Germany’s Ambassador to India, Philipp Ackermann, happily talked about how getting a visa to visit Germany has become much quicker and better for Indians. He mentioned that now, you only have to wait for two to five days for an appointment, which is a lot faster than it was a year ago.

In an interview, Ackermann said, “In the past few weeks and months, we’ve made it easier to get a visa. You can now get an appointment in just two to five days, anywhere in India. We’re proud that the process is much faster than it was a year ago, and we hope it stays that way.”

He also mentioned the strong relationship between India and Germany, pointing out that the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, visited India twice in the last year. Ackermann expressed optimism about the relationship continuing to grow in the coming year.

“We had a great year with the G20 Summit hosted by India. Germany’s leaders, including the Chancellor, visited India twice. Our relationship is getting stronger, and I believe it will keep getting better next year,” Ackermann shared.

He mentioned the positive outcomes of discussions during the G20 Summit in September, where Chancellor Scholz and Prime Minister Narendra Modi talked about working together on clean energy and innovation. Ackermann noted PM Modi’s appreciation for Germany’s contribution to the summit and their joint efforts for a better planet.

PM Modi also tweeted about their meeting, saying, “Had a good meeting with @Bundeskanzler @OlafScholz in Delhi. Thanked him for sharing his thoughts at the G20 Summit. We discussed how India and Germany can work together on clean energy, innovation, and making the world a better place.”

The ongoing conversations between the leaders were highlighted, including a meeting during the G7 Summit in Hiroshima. There, they discussed the progress in their relationship, regional happenings, and global challenges. The Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson shared, “India and Germany’s friendship is growing! PM @narendramodi met @Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz of Germany at the Hiroshima @G7 Summit. They reviewed the progress in their friendship, talked about regional events, and global challenges.”
