Hello Guys

Hopeful for a reply
Thanks Everyone Smile

Discussed many times, search the threads. It is possible, you need to register to the city of the university and also the university.

Hi,

Please call your corresponding counsellate for the detail explanation.
As per my discussion with Mumbai Counsellate, they said i need to cancel all my process that I have initiated for the current university and apply afresh for the other university, which includes appearing for the VISA interview again with a new date. SadSad

We cannot use the VISA whose process is already started for the other university.

Hope this helps... Smile

regarding this i asked vsm who changed his university after reaching germany with the visa granded in the name of another university.

he said "Yes it is possible. I did it.Just go directly to new university city and get the city registration done. After that go to Aliens office for getting a visa date for Resident permit. Nothing happens on paper as such to ensure the university change. For city registration you need to have your housing contract with you. Although it is a very simple process and I didn't faced any problems at all but I will advice you to go and talk to the Aliens office first and then follow the procedure. I also did the same thing."

i think this might help you.

My VISA interview date is on 12th. Even If I receive the admit for TU Dresden later, I will go for the TU Dresden... Lets see how things turn out..
So you are now waiting for the VISA completion of TU K??
If you are seriously thinking about going for TH Ingolstadt then better cancel the process for TU K and start with the VISA date for TH Ingolstadt.
Get in touch with Counsellate for the exact process.

Let me give you guys a detailed answer for the final time.

First, how does the visa process work? You are given a multiple entry visa Type D visa at the Consulate in India which allows you to enter Germany for your studies. On paper, this visa also clearly states that it is valid only for studying in the specific university you had applied for. Now, you will land in a city like Frankfurt or Berlin at first where you will be asked your purpose of visit. You may have to produce your letter of admit at this time. Once this is done, you are legally allowed to go anywhere you want throughout Germany (but you are only allowed to study at the specific university). You can take a train/bus to your destination city (on paper or otherwise) and chances are slim that your passport will be checked after this point as long as you have proper tickets. Even if it is checked it will be fine because you have done nothing wrong - yet!

This is why a lot of people say that you don't need to get your visa changed. However, I do not support doing this unless absolutely necessary. It may seem to be trivial because the visa is rendered invalid once you register in the city get a residence permit made. However, if you are caught it may have dire consequences. As someone above suggested, it is a good idea to talk to the officials at the Ausländerbehörde in your city when you arrive and explain why you changed your university.
