Visa Requirement Process and Tips

Type of Visa

International applicants have to apply for a national visa. This kind of visa can be renewed. If you apply for Schengen visa, there is no possibility to stay or to extend the visa in Germany after the stipulated 3 months or for the number days the Schengen Visa has been issued.

Is there a guarantee for visa?

NO. No one can guarantee a visa as its purely a decision of German Immigration department. However almost all of our students are successful in getting their visa as they are going to a reputed & recognized University, with a good background and genuine testimonials and educational records . Also note that Visa interview is a vital part of the process and every applicant need to perform well during the interview to get the Visa. Most importantly Visa interview will be conducted in German language (few exceptions like Visit visa or job search visa etc). Please prepare well if you are attending visa interview in German language. Our gotogermany.in faculties help students prepare for the visa interview and train them to increase chances of success,

Will I get a full-time visa?

Consulates/Embassy provides visas for only 90 days, some categories upto 6 months (not for students). Upon arrival in Germany the students need to extend the visa after getting the proper student registration, hostel, city registration bank etc.
