Visa

Please note: The International Students Office is not responsible for the issue of a Visa. Please contact the competent authorities.


  • Students with citizenship from an EU country do not need a Visa, just a valid passport.
  • Students from several other countries (e.g. EFTA countries, the USA, and Japan) do notneed a visa to enter Germany, but for a stay in Germany longer than 90 days, they need a residence permit.
  • To find out if you need a visa, please check out the list of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
  • If you have already received your notification of admission to university, you should apply for a student visa. Anyone who is still waiting on the notice of admission or who has to sit an entrance examination will need to apply for a student applicant visa.
  • You can obtain your student visa or your student applicant visa at the German Embassy or the German Consulate.
  • Once you arrive in Germany, you will need to submit your visa to the foreigners' authority in order to convert this to a residence permit for study purposes.
  • Comprehensive information on legal requirements for the entry and residence of international students, academics an scientists can be found in the leaflet of DAAD.
  • Further information in different languages can be found on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Do not enter Germany as a tourist! A tourist visa cannot be converted into a student visa or residence permit!

Request your visa well in advance. Gathering all of the necessary documents can take time.

Important: Before the expiration of your visa you have to request for a residence permit in Germany.
