Student Visa

New Comers > Before Arrival
To obtain a residence permit in Germany, you will also need evidence of sufficient funds or scholarships that will cover your living expenses during your study period in Germany.
Before getting the admission letter, one thing that you can do is to arrange your finances,as of now (22th March 2016), you need to deposit 7,908 € in a bank account in Germany in your name. As soon as you get your admission letter, the first thing you should do is to go to Deutsche Bank branch in your city with the admission letter, your passport and NIC, the timing of student account Dealing is 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm in Karachi during Winter semester. They will ask you to fill in a form send it to the branch of Deutsche Bank in Hamburg which deals with all student accounts. it is better to send it via TCS or DHL as it takes less time and assured to be delivered there. it takes three waorking days for your form to reach there. as soon as it reaches there, within 4 days you will get account confirmation letter through your email ( you l must provide email in account opening form).
Once you have details, now you can transfer your amount into your account. You can transfer your amount if any of your relatives has foreign currency account or via money exchangers. Remember that money exchanger will charge you Rs.2.5 per euro to be sent to Germany besides its fees normally Rs.1000. Amount is transferred within two days. Addition to the 7,908 €, an amount of  20-30 € will be deducted as account opening fees. so keep that margin also. even if u don't keep, it doesn't matter.3-4 days after you transfer the money, you will get the balance statement via email. if you don't have much time, you can apply for visa with the receipt of the money exchanger and swift statement, the consulate accepts this, they themselves will verify the amount in your account.


The amount you transfer will be blocked for one year and neither can it be drawn it once nor can be transferred any where else. You can only draw ~ 659 € per month.

there is no appointment system at German Consulate in Karachi, where as you need to take appointment at German Embassy in Islamabad if your applying for Winter Semester, in summer semester there is no appointment in German embassy in Islamabad ( my friend didn't take appointment when he applied for summer semester). please reach there on time as they process only 22 applications per day including student visa.
