The German Embassy Nairobi issues short term visas to Germany and Schengen-space for purposes such as business trips, visits to family or friends, tourism or medical treatment. These visas are category C Schengen-visa, valid for stays up to 90 days.
Although these visas ensure free movement within the whole Schengen space, the German Embassy Nairobi will only issue a visa if Germany is the main country of visit (considering length of your stay).
If another country within the Schengen space is your main destination, you will need to apply in the Embassy of that country, even if your travel arrangements take you first to Germany. If no country can be singled out, you will need to apply at the Embassy of the country you are entering first into Schengen-space.
Please note that the earliest you can apply for a short term visa is 90 days before the intended beginning of your journey.
