Please how possible could it be for an agent to process a Germany visa, and the applicant will not appear @ the embassy, and what type of visa could that be.

Visa without appearing at the embassy? I dont think that works. Even my mum at 81 years had to appear at the embassy, though she travelled to Germany already before. Don't fall for fake agents!

You are asking if one can save up to 2 million naira in 2years MSc Oga 2 years is rather too much to save just 2 mil, anyway let's ask people.

You should be thinking of how to survive first. I don't think you can save anything on menial jobs in Germany. Remember jigba said average income should be below 500€ a month for part time jobs.

I notice you are in Deutschland. I want to ask, aside the students job thing, is there any way i can be exporting goods like car parts or any goods at all should I decide to enter with big sums of money? Is it possible with my schooling and student visa?
Re: Can One Be A Millionaire With Doing Menial Jobs In Germany? by SeriaBravo: 9:15am On Jun 11, 2018
10m in 2 years as a student?

That is around 23,000k Euro in two years!!! How many working class in Germany even have such in savings.

The high percentage of the money you make in Germany stays in Germany.

Even if you make 15Euro/hour as a student(I think this is only possible for IT jobs and you must be very skilled with years of experience).I think

once you cross 1000 or 1200 euro you must pay tax. Also, you can only work 20hrs per week. In fact, working 20hrs a week is enough to make

your studies suffer because German education is TOUGH.

It is possible if you are a programmer and you are very good at what you do.
Minimum pay you get is 13€ per hr, I have friends who ear 25€ per hr. so making 1200 a month is a piece of cake even during the semester.
But I don't think you can save 10m naira in two years maybe 4years is possible.
you have to be very disciplined to achieve that.

Otherwise it's not hard right?

Well, the point is that you can't make 10m in 2 years.

Being a programmer is a like a high skilled profession here so I'm not surprised you could earn much working as a programmer...

with dishwashing, cleaning, factory, and menial jobs. I don't think its possible. But OP why have such a mindset before making the journey? If you come with aim of making money here, I pray you don't get depressed. Germans don't encourage saving, the system allows you to earn and spend. so even if you are paid 50€ per hr, I doubt if you will want to save all and live like a pauper, like they say. the more you earn, the higher your taste.

Are these friends of your's students?

This seems more like the usual Gross pay per hour for IT graduates with good software development skills. Keeping in mind the 40% tax.

Yes, they are students.
About the 40% tax, you get it back when you declare you tax at the end of the year if you don't earn above 8k.
So, I think it is a win-win.
But like I said earlier, the higher you earn, the more likely you spend more. You just have to be super discipline to save up. There are other ways of getting your money back even if you pay the 40% tax. Get a good Tax adviser and you will surprise with the knowledge you will gain.

Please what IT skills can one use to secure a good student job? I have knowledge of Java & Python programming language, CCNA, Oracle Database administration nd Linux system administration.
Re: Can One Be A Millionaire With Doing Menial Jobs In Germany? by SeriaBravo: 1:31pm On Jun 11, 2018
Earning 25 Euro per hr then you will typically earn more than 8k in a year.

Also, your tax class will change automatically. Even for those that get tax returns not sure you will get everything back

The system is regulated to prevent students from making more than a certain amount.

if you know, you know. Like I said, If you work per hr, you determine how much you earn per Month zzg. per Year. When it comes to finances I advise people to ask locals how to go about it. Look for someone you trust and he will guide you. If you think you know it all by just reading up the law, good for you.
Re: Can One Be A Millionaire With Doing Menial Jobs In Germany? by SeriaBravo: 1:59pm On Jun 11, 2018
You need to understand me. I am just trying to set the expectation right.

Germany is a country of rules.I am well travelled and I have not seen a country were citizens follow rules to the latter.

Most time in Germany, there is no cutting corners whether you are a local or international person.Also information on official sites is descriptive enough to know what is obtainable.

Of course I understand you very well, there are rules, and everyone follows it. But how many of the laid down laws do you know?
As a full-time worker, you get tax returns for setting up a home office, every year you are entitled to a pair of suits and shoes, and many more. Do you get to read that on official sites?
These are information you don't see because 1) it is written in the law, but not stated the way you can understand it. Read my previous post where I said, get a good tax adviser and you will be surprised with the information you will gain even as a Student

A wise man once said that if you fail to plan, you definitely plan to fail.
Though it is good to have expectations, but it should not be to high.

It is better to make a modest plan while reaching there, positive things might come up leading to overshoot of your expectations.


With all due respect bro, your plan is a good one but be modest in your expectations. Hopefully, it will turn out good. We also seek such opportunity for studies sha
