Please note that the visa requirements for many countries have been temporarily adjusted due to the global pandemic. We recommend checking the details directly with the German Embassy in your home country (click here).
Despite the ongoing pandemic, our visa experts will be happy to advise you in the best course of action regarding visa applications and language course enrolments.
There is an agreement between your home country and Germany that makes it easier for you to enter the country: When you arrive in Germany, you will receive a Schengen visa and can stay in Germany for up to 90 days. However, it is not possible to convert this Schengen visa into a long-term visa in Germany! If you are planning a long-term stay in Germany, you have to apply for a visa in your home country at the German embassy, e.g. for the language course visa or the study preparation visa. The processing of your visa application takes some time, so please plan accordingly.
