Visa issues

Visa application

The application documents required for a visa vary according to your country of origin. Because there can be long waiting periods during the application procedure, we strongly recommend that you ask at the embassy or consulate in your home country as early as possible for information about the application documents and procedure. If you have already received a confirmation or letter of admission, you can apply directly for a student visa.
You can apply for the visa at the German embassy or consulate abroad in your home country. You can find more information about the German missions abroad, including their websites, on the website of the German Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt):
