International Students on Online Courses will not be given Visas to Germany

International students whose courses are online ‘only’ and do not warrant physical presence at a German university are not eligible to apply for the Student visa. Considering the gravity of COVID situation, the German government is taking adequate measures to ensure only essential travel is allowed.

More than 80,000 international students had left Germany in April with all the facilities closed due to lockdown restrictions. The students who are required to take their classes at the university must procure ”a certificate of presence” from the German university. These international students will be eligible to apply for a visa if they prove their requirement for personal presence at the university.

Education Minister Anja Karliczek stated that the students, who can prove that their studies cannot be carried out online entirely and require compulsory attendance at the university, can enter Germany. On the other hand, students who are learning digitally/doing online courses will not be allowed to enter Germany.
