Find out more about the visa process. Makes sure that you apply for a student visa on time. The process may take up to several weeks.

Appointment at the embassy

Make sure that you start your visa process as soon as you have received your admission letter of Hochschule Bremen. Please apply for a visa appointment at the German embassy right away. It might takes weeks before you will get an appointment.

Application process

You will find all information about the application process on the website of the respective German Embassy of your country.

Please be aware that only a “student visa” allows you to study in Germany. If you enter Germany with a tourist visa we will not be able to enrol you. You would have to go back to your home country and would need to apply again.                                                             

The visa application process will take about 6-8 weeks! Please read more about the procedure for applying for a student visa.

Documents for the visa application

To obtain a student visa you have to proof a lot of documents. You will find information about all requirements on the website of the respective German embassy of your country.

Please read and check your documents carefully, because if only one document is missing on the day of your visa appointment you have to apply again. To get a new appointment may take weeks!  If a “blocked account” is required for the visa appointment please get in contact with the Deutsche Bank or Fintiba as soon as possible.

Also mandatory for the visa application is a proof of health insurance valid for 3 or 6 month (depends on the temporary study visa). Please take the cheapest travel insurance because for the enrollment at the University you have to apply for a German health insurance. We will assist you in this matter.

An application for a blocked account will take about 2-3 weeks.
