The Consular jurisdiction of CGI Frankfurt extends to the states of Hessen, North RhineWestphalia, Rhineland Palatinate and Saarland.  Besides carrying out Consular functions that include issuing of visas, passports, PIO, OCI cards and rendering other welfare services, the Consulate strongly focuses on strengthening economic and business ties between India and Germany. The four states falling within the Consulate’s jurisdiction together accounted for nearly 37% of the total Indo-German bilateral trade in the period Jan-Dec 2016.

The Commercial Wing of the Consulate assists importers and exporters with trade queries, facilities Indian participation at trade fairs within the four states and organizes several Seminars and Business events in association with its German partner associations and trade organizations. An India Business Forum has been set up to bring together the Indian business community, professionals and entrepreneurs on a common platform. Details about its objectives, registration and activities can be found https://www.cgifrankfurt.de/reg_ibf.php.
