I am an Indian citizen looking to travel to Germany this summer. However, there is a big shortage of visa appointments across the country and I'm looking for ways to get a Schengen visa.
I was thinking of travelling to a third country near India (like Singapore) and applying for a Schengen visa from there. However, the German embassy in Singapore requires me to have a residence permit (https://singapur.diplo.de/sg-en/service/05-VisaEinreise/-/2455416) while I will just have a tourist visa. Is there any country from where this is possible?
