Here's the latest update for Indian students who want to study in Germany. Germany has decided to open slots for visa appointments on Germany student visa applications. This will be implemented from November 1, 2022.

The details of new policies to study in Germany

Germany is working on clearing the pending entries on the list of appointments due to being conducted. This waitlist is for the winter semester of 2022. The German government is keen on ensuring that the admission that international students have from the German university is genuine. To help maintain clarity and authenticity of the credentials and admission proofs, new instructions have been given to foreign students. Students who are newly registering for an appointment under the German visa procedure must be sure that they have all the mandatory documents with them.

Indian students applying for an appointment must get an assessment of their academic records done by the APS (Academic Evaluation Center).

Then, they will get certificates of authenticity before applying for a Germany student visa. The APS certificate is required for Indian students who are joining a course in Germany for a duration of more than 90 days. They can apply for registration online by visiting the www.aps-india.de website. Once the document is received, they can print and sign it. Then, they must pay a procedure fee of Rs.18,000 to APS. This must be transferred to the APS bank account. Also read...
