IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR STUDENTS

It has been noticed that numerous applicants do not appear for their appointments or cancel their bookings on extremely short notice. In case you have to cancel your appointment, please do so well ahead of time, so that your time slot may be allocated to another student. Thank you for your co-operation in this regard.

Due to the consistently large number of student visa applicants, the Embassy reminds all prospective students of the following:

1. Those who have already had their visa interview are requested NOT to inquire about the status of their visa applications (neither by phone, email or on facebook©). Once the responsible alien authority has delivered its opinion, the result will be published on our website. The Embassy is NOT in a position to quicken an alien authority's decision.

2. Those who have applied for an appointment are requested to have some patience. The Embassy gives appointments in chronological order. As your papers are going to be verified by the language school or/and university in question, the process can be time-consuming. Please understand that due to data protection regulations no visa status and appointment updates can be given by phone, e-mail or on facebook©.

Missing documents

This is to inform all applicants that this Embassy has set up a specific email address for those who have already applied for a visa, but failed to submit all required documents at the time of their interview. Please scan the missing document(s), save those scans as pdf-format file and send them to the following email address: dhak%27%diplo%27%de,missing-documents
