Visa Situation for IGCHE Students

It seems most German consulates in India lifted covid-19-related visa appointment restrictions for language course and exchange students.

So for those of you who already passed TestDaF, you should apply for an appointment in the category "Student Exchange Program". You do not need an "aggregate score 90% in 12th Standard" for that anymore. For those of you who intend to do a course at IIK, please select the category "Language course/internship in preparation for a study (course)".

Here is the link for visa appointments:

Select "For National visa application (stay in Schengen is for more than 90 days) submission at the VAC or at the Embassy/Consulate please click here" from there.

Good luck!

Visa Situation for IGCHE Students

As you know if you are currently applying for a Germany Visa, it is very hard to get an appointment at the consulate, due to the Corona situation. The IGCHE is aware of this, and we have been in contact with the consulates and the embassy since the beginning of the month. Unfortunately, so far we have only received suspensive answers, the special situation of IGCHE students is not recognized.

I have also contacted the Ministry of Economics of North Rhine-Westphalia, and they have drawn the ambassador's attention to the importance of the IGCHE program for the German-Indian economic relations. So far nothing came out of this, but the ministry and we are sticking to it.

We will continue our efforts to bring you to Germany as soon as possible. If we achieve anything, we will let you know immediately. Hope to see you soon!

Best regards, stay save
