Why do Schengen officials stamp passports at visa interviews (Germany)?

Why embassy interviewer put a stamp on the passport when you applied for gernan national visa. What might be the possible reason or the rationale about it


  • @joiey24
    The stamp is a security measure. If the visa is granted the embassy stamp shows that it is the same passport presented with the original application. Usually the visa vignette is placed over the stamp.
  • @Alethia when the passport was stamped do you think there is a high chance of visa will be granted?
  • @joiey24
    I have no idea they do this to every passport it is not a sign the visa application is successful
