Student Visa

In general foreigners wishing to study in Germany will need a visa. A visa has to be obtained before entering Germany. There are many different types of visas and it would be advisable for you to contact the relevant German diplomatic service in your home country (Embassy or General Consulate) that will be able to help you in applying for a visa. More information can be found here.

Citizens of European Union member states can enter Germany without a visa. A valid passport or identity card is sufficient.

Countries outside of the European Union characterized as ‘Buddy’ countries may enter Germany without a visa and will instead apply for a Residence Permit after entry. Please contact the Germany Embassy in your country to verify if you may enter without a visa.
