Visa for Language Students
Visa for your German Langauge Courses in Germany
Certain countries require student visa if you want to attend German courses in Munich. Countries of the EU, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan do not request a student visa. Applicants from the People’s Republic of Vietnam, China, and Mongolia need the APS (Akademische Prüfstelle/Academic Evaluation Centre). Please find all the necessary information as well as the foreign representation of your home country on the website of the Federal Foreign Office.
Please apply for a language student visa for Germany as early as possible. Processing and issuing can take up to 3 months. If you travel to Germany on a ›tourist visa‹, you may stay for maximum of 90 days only. It is important to note that a regular travel ›tourist visa‹ can under no circumstances be later converted into a ›student visa‹.
