The German Embassy is all set to open visa appointment slots for “Students Visa” applications from November 1, 2022. The process will be carried out through Visa Facilitation Services (VFS) Global. 

Students planning to apply for a Germany Student Visa must obtain an Academic Evaluation Center (APS) certificate for the assessment of their academic credentials. 

A report mentioned on the Germany Embassy in Delhi website stated, “As there still is a number of entries on the appointment waitlist for winter semester 2022, please note that unfortunately, it is not possible for the embassy/consulates to verify who is in possession of a still valid admission from a German university. Therefore, all students are kindly requested to register for an appointment only if they have obtained all mandatory documents”.

APS mandatory for Indian students

The German Embassy has also made it mandatory for Indian students wanting to study in Germany – to get their academic records assessed by the Academic Evaluation Center (APS). They must obtain authenticity certificates before applying for a student visa in Germany.

Starting November 1st, 2022, the APS certificates will act as mandatory supporting documents to be submitted alongside the visa application.

APS will be open for applications beginning October 1st, 2022.

Accelerated admission and visa processing

By introducing the APS (attached to the Science Section of the Embassy), the German Embassy seeks to accelerate student admission and visa processing times. 

Take Note! Students sponsored by German or European Union-funded scholarships do not require an APS certificate.
