When should I start my visa application?

1. As early as possible!

Applicants must submit Visa applications, together with all necessary documents, in person at the German mission responsible for their place of residence. Addresses can be found here:
German Federal Foreign Office

2. Further information about Germany in general and Visa regulations in special can be found here:
Visa regulations

3. The process will vary from 3 up to 6 months.

4. Being accepted at the University does not guarantee that a student will get a Visa! The decision to issue a Visa rests solely on the German Embassy or Consulate in your home country and it is out of our control.
