vfs-visa-slot-germany

Every 2 minutes, check for visa slots at VFS website.
If there are any, send a call and a message of the format:

Sent from your Twilio trial account – Earliest Available Slot : 30/11/2021 at 2021-11-01 13:02:07

Why

If you are here, you already know the hassle of booking a visa slot using VFS website.
I got way too much time in my life, so instead to destroying my sleep looking for slots every 30 minutes, I created this script.
