Project Description

Visa service

You can best check whether you need a visa to travel by visiting the website of the Foreign Office. There you can find the address of the German embassy or consulate in your home country as well as the exact entry requirements and necessary documents.

We can help you if you need a visa for your stay in Germany. Would you like to take a language course for up to 90 days or stay longer in Germany because you want to study or work here? Before you travel to Germany make sure that you consider the following points well in advance of your trip.

  1. If you need a visa to attend one of our language courses, please send us your course registration before applying for a visa.
  2. You will then receive confirmation of your registration and an invoice for the course.
  3. After you have paid the invoice we will send you a letter of confirmation by post or email. You will need to hand this in to the embassy.

Check with the German embassy in your home country whether you need any other supporting documents. Be aware that your visa application may take several weeks or months to process.

If you need to extend your visa, register your residence in Germany or apply for a residence permit we would be only too happy to advise you and will accompany you to the immigration office if you wish.

We can also advise you on the best, affordable health insurance for you.

Our visa service and information about health insurance is free!

Common questions about visas

Do I need a visa?2020-01-28T15:24:27+01:00

The best way to find out if you need a visa is to look at the homepage of the Foreign Office. There you will find the address of the German embassy in your home country, where you can ask about the exact requirements for entering Germany.

Please remember, if you need a visa to travel and want to study or attend a long language course in Germany you cannot enter the country on a tourist visa. A tourist visa cannot be extended.
