A report emerged last week in German national newspaper Welt am Sonntag, the Sunday edition of Die Welt, alleging that hackers had infiltrated the German Embassy's visa appointment system in Beirut and were snapping up all available slots to sell them on the black market in Damascus for up to $5,000 .But the embassy categorically denied that anyone had hacked the visa appointment website. When The Daily Star checked late Thursday, there was one slot available for Syrians wishing to apply for a family reunion national visa appointment, and none for those seeking to apply for a Schengen EU visa appointment.Lebanese applicants for family reunion visas must now go to the embassy in person between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to get an appointment. The Schengen booking system remains unchanged and there were no appointments available when The Daily Star checked Thursday.
