Job Seekers Visa Germany by cocolacec(m): 5:17pm On Mar 28
Hello everyone,
I am creating this thread for some incite into this category of long term visa(6months) for job search. Please share your Experiences.

The job seeker visa for Germany is a Long-Term Residency Permit, which allows you to stay in the country for six (6) months and look for a job.
If at the end of the six (6) months you have found a place of employment, you will be given the Germany work visa or a Germany work permit and you will be allowed to work and live there.

Please note that having a job seeker visa does not allow you to start working immediately in Germany. It only means that you can visit the country and look for a job during your stay.

In order to obtain this visa, you need the following:

Be eligible to apply
Compile all the necessary documents
Fill out an application form and book your visa appointment

Eligibility of applicants
There are several criteria that you need to fulfill to be eligible to apply for the Germany job seeker visa. These are as follows:

a Bachelor of Master’s Degree from a German university or an equivalent foreign degree
Have a minimum of 5 years of experience in your related field of study

Show proof that you have sufficient funds to cover your stay during the time you are in Germany

Have travel or medical insurance for your entire stay in Germany or until you get your Work Permit

What is a good time to start the application when i’m already in Germany?

If you have entered the country already and you are using this as a way to extend your Initial 3 months visa, ideally, allow around 4 to 6 weeks before your current visa runs out to book for an appointment online.

Thanks.

You need to have 4,320 Euros in a blocked account (this is a new requirement introduced in August 2018). So ideally, an equivalent of 720 EUR per month. If you have more, the better wink
Re: Job Seekers Visa Germany by coolsheyi: 10:51pm On Dec 04

As a transport graduate with over 3 years experience, do i stand a chance in d transport industry in Germany ?
Re: Job Seekers Visa Germany by Gillespie1: 9:25am On Dec 07
It's either the 4,320€ or a sponsorship letter from a German citizen.

I want to know if the field of study matters.
