For non-EU citizens
If you require a visa to enter Germany, you must apply for this at the German Embassy or German Consulate in your home country.
Please apply for your visa as soon as possible. It's advisable to apply for it as soon as you've received your letter comfirming your admission
- Letter confirming admission
- Proof of sufficient financial resources to fund your stay (Proof of Finances)
If you are an EU citizen, you don't need a visa to enter Germany.
If you stay in Germany for more than 3 months, you require a "Freizügigkeitsbescheinigung" (Freedom of Movement Certificate). This is issued by the Foreign Citizens' Office of the City of Bochum.
