My appointment slot was 9.00 am. I reached the embassy by 8.00 am. There were already 8 applicants ahead of me. When I entered inside I was given a checklist to arrange my documents. I had arranged my documents in the given order beforehand. I suggest everyone to arrange photocopies of their documents in the below given order in sets of two as it will save your lot of time:

  1. Application Form

  2. Declaration form

  3. Cover letter

  4. Admission Letter / Contract with the university (if applicable)

  5. All Mark sheets and Degree Certificate in descending order

  6. Blocked Account statement (Not older than 3 months)

  7. Financial Proof (In case of tuition fees)

  8. TOEFL / IELTS score card

  9. Goethe Zertifikat (If applicable)

  10. Copy of passport

Fill the DD forms beforehand and make a set of 2 DD forms, your DD and 1 photo. After arranging the documents I went to 1st counter where the officer checked my passport, dd and other forms and gave me a token (My token number was 9). After waiting for around 40 to 45 minutes, I was called in for interview. My interviewer was a young Indian lady. She asked me following questions:

  1. Which visa are you applying for?

  2. Which course and university?

  3. Tuition fees and number of semester?

  4. Why MBA course? (I am going to Germany for MBA program)

  5. Any Backlogs?

  6. Have you paid the tuition fees?

  7. What are your future plans after the completion of course?

After the bio-metric, she handed me over a questionnaire containing some basic questions about the university, from where did you get idea of studying in Germany, name some researchers or famous persons from your field other than your professors, course modules etc. When I was done answering I gave the questionnaire back to the interviewer. She stamped my passport and gave it back with a receipt. By 10.30 I was out of the embassy. There is nothing to worry much, the interviewers are not rude unless you have arranged the documents in wrong order or you are missing some documents. I was not asked for any extra documents other than the above mentioned ones. I was not even asked about my work experience or any documents relating to it. Travel Insurance is not required at the time of interview. Sound confident and go prepared to answer all questions about your course, university and work experience (if any).
