What are the requirements for a German student visa application?

Once you have been admitted to a study programme, as student planning to travel to Germany, you must meet certain requirements to be issued an entry visa for a period of three months.

You need:

  • Valid Passport
  • Admission letter
  • Adequate Health insurance
  • Proof of sufficient financial resources
  • Proof of knowledge of language of instruction
  • Proof of any academic achievements or qualifications gained up to date

  • We would recommend that you contact the German Consulate nearest to you. Once in Germany you will have to apply for a residence permit for which you will get assistance from the student tutors.
