Please register for your preferred time slot (one person at a time), wear a FFP2 mask and have your proof of complete vaccination against covid or recovery from covid at hand (“3G rule” in German). Please check the criteria for the 3G rule beforehand – if you do not comply with one of the rules, on-site consultation will be denied.
