Visa Application Process in Germany
In general, foreigners applying for residence (beyond three month) in Germany for the purpose of studying need a visa. IfaS in collaboration with UP will apply for this “Certificate” issued by the German Embassy in Brazil by proxy for accepted applicants, who have completed all the required courses (first and second semester) and start their third semester at ECB or their master thesis semester in Germany. IfaS supports the acceleration of visa procedure by collaborating with the relevant German authorites.
In addition to the required documents for the enrollment, IMAT students must present the following documents to obtain a study visa for Germany:
- Health insurance policy,
- Proof of any German language skills the applicant may have or of any planned participation in an intensive language course in Germany,
- Proof of financial resources.
Accepted applicants will then be asked to take the “Certificate” to their nearest German Embassy.
