Many of our services are subject to a fee. Find information on the amount and the payment options here.

Payment Options


The fees we charge are stipulated by German law, for example in the Passport Act or the Regulations on Fees for Services Abroad. Fees are set in Euro and will be converted into Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) according to the Embassy's exchange rate. The amount is rounded up or down to the nearest 1.- MYR amount.

Fees are payable in cash in MYR or by credit card (Visa or MasterCard). Debit cards are not accepted.

Please note the following:

  • It is not allowed to take your cellphone into the consular section. If you need an OTP for credit card transactions, it will not be possible.
  • Due to technical reasons, failures in credit card payments may sometimes occur.
  • Credit cards will be charged in Euro from Germany and additional bank charges may apply. Please ensure that the security measures of your Malaysian bank do not prohibit credit card charges from abroad.

If you visit our Honorary Consul, special provisions and additional charges apply.
