@solaris, you have a higher chance of getting the visa if you open the blocked account. What session are you going for? Summer or Winter?
Re: German Embassy And Visa by suxes2006(m): 10:15am On Dec 07, 2011
Opening a block acct alone does not guarantee visa
you need deposit the main amount needed too

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You search online they do not recommend any place IMO
when you see the places online then you can choose the best

Museums and historic places are the best

i lived in several cities. I did my language course at Freiberg. Then studienkolleg @ Aachen NRW and my 1st degree program @ leipzig germany. All u need is a sponsorship letter from germany(verpflichtungserklarung) or a blocked germany account in any german bank. The embassy can help u with that. There are no tution fees in most of the uni,s.
You will be issued a work permit after ur clearance at ur school of choice after ur arrival. The job pay ranges from 5euro per hour to 10euro depending on the city. The salary is enough for you and u will still have alot left to send home. But u need about 1000euros as pocket moneyor BTA for use before u get a job. Remb u need to pay for accomodation in d hostel@200euro a month as u arrive. Highest paid is d western states e.g munich and Hamburg but they dont easily offer admisson to foreingners. Eastern uni,s offer admission faster than other regions. Offcourse they re very poor . All u need is to get a student visa here, travel and the rest is much easier and enjoyable. My junior bros will be travelling with student visa this week to Dusseldorf germany. Alles gute zu euch alle. Das leben ist nur leichter da am anfang.

Thanks man for the write-up. I hope others reading this are learning as well.

You mean you got your own visa with a course in a language school and paid
the normal money (1.8M I guess) to get the blocked account of a thing?

As soon as you are settled with the school (gotten the IV and other docus)
then what about the embassy here? Care to tell us what docus you submitted
and how you went (or go, i no sabi english) about it?

Procedure to obtaining a German student visa.
1. Search for any school of your choice offering ur course online preferably thru www.daad.de
2. Downlaod d schools admission application form, either in english or german ,fill the form,attach ur waec result or proof of previous studies plus ur passport foto and send the parcel through a registered Post to the university. Do this to about 5 universities and wait for an admission letter from them within 2months. The general admisson aplication deadlines are 15th jan and 15th july resp for winter and summer semester.
3. After receiving admission letter, go to D embassy to help u open a blocked account with N1.8M in ur name at Germany or u get a sponsorship declaration letter from sombody in germany.
4. With admission letter and d financial stuff solved. Go to the german embassy website and download and appointment letter form for student visa. Fill it and send it to d embassy for ur interview date in 3wks time.
4. You ,ll be issued a 3months visa which will be extended to 2yrs upon ur arrival @germany. It will be extended every 2yrs for d rest of ur study period upto 10yrs incl masters or maybe PHD.

NB. You can apply for language visa or study visa direct. Language visa lasts for 8months max and u must return to nigeria to apply afresh for a student visa. It cannot be converted to study visa in germany.
Both has d same requirements for obtain a german visa.
I travelled with a sponsorship letter from my inlaw in Germany. It costs the sponsor just 20euro to obtain a sponsorship form from the local govt office over there and not more than 30mins.

Whao, you've done a whole lotta good to this topic!

You've simpliified it and I wanna say a very big thank you!
Is there no application fee involved?

About sponsorship and statement of account thingy, if the student
is applying for visa here, will he/she present a Nigerian bank statement?

I am asking all this to gain more knowledge into this and to also help
my fellow guys who can't ask the ridiculous questions.

I must commend you for your answers which are quite informative and helpful.I intend to do a masters programme in Germany, however am considering going with my wife and kid (who is barely a year),please I would like you to do justice to some of the questions I have,
1. Would it be better to process my visa first before theirs (my wife & child) or would it be easy to do all together?
2. My wife has not really had any working experience after her first degree, so am considering the language course for her, can you recommend any school?
3.What kind of jobs (regardless of quailification) are readily available on part time for a student?
Thanks

Re: German Embassy And Visa by Meliszwe: 4:41pm On Jan 07, 2012
Thank you suxess God bless for your prompt attention. I have read that part. With my understanding it indicates verification exercise when i want to apply for student Visa.
What the university i wanted to apply to posted is that before submission of my application to the school,i have to certify my documents at the Germany embassy in Nigeria and send it together with my filled and printed out application before it can be attended to.
Do i have to pay €480 +€15 for verification and postage for certification of my documents?
Someone with much more experience pls,attend to this!
Re: German Embassy And Visa by suxes2006(m): 5:35pm On Jan 07, 2012
^^^^^^^^^^^

The best bet is for you to contact German embassy about the price!
As per the school's info, I guess you've got something wrong there.
It's only when you got your admission that the embassy will need to
do the authorization thingy on your cert.

Re: German Embassy And Visa by JagaJaga1: 2:41am On Jan 12, 2012
@Meliszwe I applied to the University of Bremen. I think their process is more simpler as they collect scanned copies as applicants only send documents if admitted. They told me that docs notiied by a notary public will be okay when sending.

Why don't you ask the school if just a notary public certification would be okay.

I still do not, but if it is about family visa
then it is better you process all at thesame time provided
you can show enough evidence that you have money to survive
the family in Germany.
