bro did you first apply for study permit w/o getting enrolling in a school? Cos from what you said, it seems you applied for the permit then on getting there you applied for a language course? Pls clarify

No brother...I got the language course invitation/admission while in Nigeria. It's what I used in the application of the Ukrainian visa.

The Lord who has started this good thing will complete it in your life bro. Big congrats

I'm in the same shoes now and a lot of people tell me I need to be in Ukraine for at least two years before I can move. I came here in February and I plan to leave by September. God will do it for me I believe.

This is also a note to other applicants in Nigeria. Let's tell ourselves the truth now once and for all. I had to make that difficult acceptance and realize that if I want to come to Germany I have to leave Nigeria first. It's so much more easier here trust me.

In the meantime please bro I've sent a mail I have a few questions to ask please. Thank you very much.

I have replied your mail...I am ready to assist u in anyway I can...This thread help me a lot in this my journey to Deutschland and it's right to give back in anyway I can..

Very informative brother thank you.
But I want to ask what if you haven't stayed in the country for up to six months can you still move?
I mean smaller European countries like ukraine.

Although it's coming late but I know it will be a good source of information for those that are already in Ukraine and want to move to Germany on a Student visa.

My Journey to Deutschland is a case of Determination and Gratitude to God.

I started my Deutschland journey January 2019, I got 5 admission from different schools by May 2019...exactly the month the German Embassy in lagos started this Category A and B of a thing...with thier conditions I fall into Category B. I booked an appointment with category B in May 2019..I prayed and fasted for a month for an appointment and that's to no avail...middle of June I booked category A with a leap of Faith and got an appointment immediately for 6 days later being 24th of June 2019.

I went for my appointment that day after check with Mr Paulinus I was allowed in...when it's my turn to be interviewed..the visa officer was so nice to me but had to turn me back as she said I can't be interviewed cos I didn't belong to category A...I was devastated but it didn't kill my spirit...I had to come back home and rebooked category B with my fasting and prayers. The winter semester 2019 passed no AD, I got an admission for summer 2020 booked and appointment again for Category B the summer semester passed no AD.

By May 2020 I told myself the truth that if I must achieved my dream of studying in Germany I must do it the hard way...I checked up for Ukraine as it will be a good route for me...I applied for Ukraine study visa and got my visa by August 2020. I moved to Ukraine in October after thier lockdown lifting on september 28.

Getting to Ukraine I registered with a school, Got an accommodation and also got my residence permit by end of November 2020. I also got my admission for Germany summer semester 2021 but I was confused whether I will stay in Ukraine for six months before applying from there...I called thier visa center..( Visametric).that was in December of 2020. I told them that I came into Ukraine in October that was 2 months back as of then...if it's possible to apply immediately or stay for 6months...They gave me a wonderful news I wanted to hear that I can apply immediately....they gave me date of on the phone immediately for December 11 which I later cancelled cos my block account wasn't ready..and rebooked for end of January 2021.

On the day of my appointment I went to the visa center ( visametric) at kryshatric street in Kiev.. as they told me on the phone..that there won't be any interview for the visa....It was only me that came for the submission that day..They just checked my documents and confirmed it was ok..I paid my vfs fee, visa fee and thumprinted.

Exactly a month after I received a call from the visametric that my documents has been returned from German Embassy and will be delivered the next day...my BP was on the high side as I wasn't aware of the content but I was very hopeful...when the parcel was returned the visa was stamped to the Glory of God. I was given a 6 months visa as against thier normal 3 months because of corona.

I arrived Germany two weeks ago... Germany is beautiful... Germany is powerful...I have been to Ukraine but seriously u can't compare the two..I just moved into my apartment in Nuremberg city and in the process of my residence permit at the moment.

Hello guys, I'm here to share my whole admission to visa experience on this German waka. I hope this lightens the mood here because I know the mood around here is down .

So I've been on my German journey since late 2018, I tried applying to many schools for Msc admission and got loads of rejection which dampened my mood but I decided I was not going to relent. So all through 2019 I was seeking admissions in public schools and I wasn't getting any, I guess because my course of study was in high demand (Data science) which requires the best Bsc result.

In the midst of this rejection offers I decided not to relent and was a follower of this German visa thread on nairaland. I began to notice that even with admission letters, appointment letters at the Embassy was not forthcoming and so I decided to leave Nigeria.

Early this year I decided on moving to Turkey, with the aim of staying six months and then moving to Germany, at this point I had no German admission yet but I decided on pursuing it. I came to Turkey as an Msc student in March and during the whole lockdown I started looking out for more schools to apply to in Germany.

My plan was very simple, I would come to Turkey , stay for six months with their residence permit and then apply for German visa after getting admission to Germany. So, I was sending applications here and there while I was studying in Turkey here and BOOM I finally got an admission to one of the best schools in Germany (top 10 percent worldwide). At this point I already had my Turkish resident permit and was waiting for my six months to complete before I apply for the German study visa at the Embassy here.

Finally, the six months elapsed, and then I began the visa application process which was very simple and fine .

The Process here in Turkey is very simple:

1. They have a third-party body (iData) that you book visa appointments through.
2. You pay about 69 Turkish lira which is an equivalent of (4500 naira) and then they tell you in two weeks you'll get an appointment to go to the Embassy. Mine came in 9 days.
3. They sent me the required documents and everything I needed to take to the Embassy which was not a problem at all. Required documents were blocked account confirmation ( I used expatrio), health insurance which expatrio provides, original copy of your degree certificate, visa application form and biometric passport photographs and most importantly 75 euros and motivation letter.
4. And so I went to the Embassy, guys it was very smooth there.. no stress whatsoever. I got to the Embassy on time . Had a wait time of 20 minutes and then it was time to talk to the visa officer.
5. The interview questions were smooth though plenty, I advice for preparation and calmness. So at the end of the interview the visa officer told me I will be given a visa decision in 4-6 weeks and so I left.
6. Guys, exactly one week after my visa interview , I received a call from the Embassy that my passport and other documents are being shipped by UPS and they are calling to confirm my home address. I responded accordingly and they said in 2 - 3 days I will receive my documents.
7. I am glad to say I received my passport with the visa stamped.

I can say I am ready to travel to Germany and start a new phase in my life..

Cheers Everyone!! For everyone still trying and hoping to leave Nigeria for Germany or anywhere else, I believe everyone's dreams and wishes will come to pass.

Congratulations bro...I sent u a dm..please reply..

Hey Guys, Here's my experience at the Embassy.

Mr Paulinus wasn't what I expected, listen to him, don't panic and you'll be okay.

So he sorted my documents at the gate, I went in to the Visa section and waited almost an hour.

I was the first person for student visa.

I was attended to by a lady VO


VO: Hi, Good morning, what are you here for?
Me: Student Visa
VO: For what course?
Me: ------
VO: You have not funded, I can't find any proof that you have even opened the account,
Me: I was not expecting a Visa appointment date this early, I only had three weeks to prepare.
VO: She hands me two forms to sign indicating that my application might be rejected if I don't provide the complete documents by email.
Me: I signed the documents, letting her know I'll send it via email next week. ( *EPP Me I'm looking for 500k* ���

VO: Why this course.
Me: &---
VO: Why Germany
Me: Free Tuition and Access to a world Class education.
VO: Why not UK or US?
Me: I can't afford it.
VO: What do you know about Germany?
Me: I talked until I ran out of facts, she wasn't satisfied, ��‍♂��‍♂��‍♂.
VO: What do you do now?
Me: I work as a media specialist for a company in Lagos.
VO: But you studied Agriculture, How come you're a media person?
Me: I was a photographer during my undergraduate days and I picked up skills in media.
VO: How much are you getting paid?

Me: Told her my Monthly salary and mentioned that I got it a few days after completion of my NYSC, I mentioned that I had done a few jobs for my employer as a student and corper, hence, he decided to bring me on.

She also asked if I had learnt German, I said not officially.

She said I include my form number on the email I send with the confirmation of funds.

NB: They'll hold on to your original Certificates.

please help us, is there any issue arising from the category at the embassy? I will believe you because this will be a direct information from an interview hall today..

did u book category B? when did u book? and when did u get the date?
Travel / Re: General German Student Visa Enquiries Part 6 by Nonsoanthony(m): 2:34pm On Jun 07, 2019
General information.

I called the german embassy and the lady said category B is for 3rd class holders.

So if u are a B.Sc holder with at least 2.2, you should apply for category A.

Even though you are given admission in and b.sc, u can apply for category A. Masters and Phd are only listed but it also includes b.sc provided u have a b.sc with at least 2.2.

Just a note to everyone waiting for category B appointment date.

All this category of a thing should not even be a debate anymore...those that went for embassy yesterday and today has confirmed that there is nothing like category but just "student visa".. anyone that wants to be in that non moving category B should try and remain forever..

[quote author=Chriswazo post=78763427]i won't blame anyone, Cat A gets quicker attention than Cat B

And is possible, that Cat B are scheduled for just a day in a week since d assume d are few

Cat A qualified peeps have overshadowed the whole of B bookings all this while [obviously ignorance]

Now u all wants to struggle it out for the little slots with the less attended "BSc" people that have a caveat "that all their entries would be deleted by september ending" whereas u have a wide range of dates and faster attention in ur due cat A,

is wickedness sha

Just bear in mind the Cat Bs wey no get much option still wan japa like u and u wan add to the heat d are suffering from the embassy.

Is no problem, i only pity the Bs that registered very late, my opinion remains, if you registered from 13th may in Cat B, begin to formulate 2nd option.

if d took 3 weeks to give only 6th date. God knows how many months d will take to cover 7 days

all hope is not lost, God report of u is final, not even embassy or Cat A dragging with u go prevail

we will be alright at last, but those of u that should be in Cat A, pity this B people o, d de vex for embassy already, don't add to their trauma

chriswazo pls stop heating the polity... all of us here will still get date whether u register on 7th or today, what of those yet to get admission? pls stop doing permutations and combinations for embassy, they know their work and they are doing it well...the Information after the visa booking is that 2 to 3 months to ur appointment (visit date) that u will get a second e-mail with a date..so why this tension up and down..I tire o
