Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany - Cincinnati

Book an Appointment
Martin Wilhelmy serves as the German honorary consul responsible for southern OH and eastern & central KY. Also, this office accepts passport applications for residents of all of OH and of KY, IN and MI. Please book your time-slot according to your proximity to Cincinnati: generally, if you live near us, please choose early AM slots. If you live 2 hours away, then please choose mid-AM slots. If you live 4 hours away, you may chose the late AM slots (unless you prefer to drive in the night before). Thank you for honoring this approach, as we strive to equally serve passport applicants coming here from varying distances. If you are trying to book within less than two weeks notice (we call this "last-minute"), then you may take any available slot left! In case of true urgencies/emergencies where you cannot secure any available appointment slot, please contact us and we may be able to make special arrangements (subject to possible surcharges). Visa inquiries are not handled here; only at the consulate in Chicago.
