Visa experience – Bangalore consulate. June 11th 2014
University: TU Munich
Course: Informatics Winter 2014

First of all I had arranged following documents in order (2 sets):
1. Application Form.
2. Declaration on True and complete Information signed and dated.
3. Copy of passport
4. Letter of Acceptance from Technical University of Munich.
5. Confirmation of semester fees paid (Printout of Updated student portal).
6. Proof of Language Proficiency (IELTS Report).
7. Academic Certificates (10th , 12th , BE Marks cards, BE Degree certificate).
8. Blocked bank account confirmation letter along with confirmation of 8100 EU transferred to blocked account.
9. Travel health insurance.

The VI: Indian lady in her 30s I guess.
Slot: 9:20 to 9:40 am. I reached there around 8: 55 and was let in.
I had given Counter 3 for interview. There were 2 interviews before mine, both for dependent visa.
VO called out my name around 9:25.

Me: Good morning Mam.
VO: Good morning. Pass me 2 sets of documents along with the passport and extra photograph. Which visa are yu applying for?
Me: Student Visa. And I passed the documents she asked for.
VO: Which university and which course?
Me: TU Munich and MSc in Informatics.
VO: what is the duration of the course?
Me: 2 years
VO: How are you funding your education?
Me: Parents and cousin are Sponsoring.
VO: ok, have you created the blocked account and transferred 8040 EU?
Me: yes.
VO: Pass me your original Degree certificate.
Me: Passed it.
VO: German language proficiency?
Me: None. But I am taking A1 course at Inlingua.
VO: Only certificate from Goethe is accepted.
Me: I will take the test from Goethe.
VO: Ok, Are you in contact with anyone in Germany regarding the course you are attending?
Me: ya with my study coordinator of my course. And told her name.
VO: Here you have written that you are working. Are you still working?
Me: Ya I am working. But have resigned and is serving notice period.
Then she gave me a form to fill. Just a form from DAAD I guess. Had general multiple choice questions.
VO: When are you travelling?
Me: on Sept 4th .

She asked me for Biometric finger scan. After typing for 5 min she put a D stamp on my passport. Gave me the acknowledgement and passport back. Kept the Degree certificate with her. Told that it takes 8 weeks for processing. Will inform you thru mail or call after the approval are received.
Took the receipt and passport and came out around 9: 35.

Seniors I felt this is a rite thread to post. If a new thread is required then
let me know i will create one.

Can tag me for queries related to Visa for Bangalore consulate.

This may be the first VI description on Edulix for European destination. I encourage other Euro-destined Edulixians to do the same. But the correct forum is the visa forum. Hope moderators move it soon.

At any rate, congrats! Also, please update your infobank profile with visa decisions. We have fields for that now.

Cheers.

Sir,

We thought that posting the visa experience for EU countries will be appropriate, since there were not much active members (till now) in EU forum. And the hyperlinks of these experience threads are given in theCompilation Thread.

It can be posted in visa forum as well, but we thought that its visibility will not so good as here.

If there are more no. of users sharing the experiences then we may ask them to use visa forum. In this case adding the country in the title of the thread will be good to locate the threads easily, just a suggestion.

Anyways I will discuss with the senior members and mods regarding this.

Regards,
Scofield.

EE Sir,

The problem with having the German VI threads in the Visa forum is that it will quickly disappear under the tens of VI threads that are posted each day for the US visa. Hence, compiling them will also be a huge problem. Another work around as scofield suggested is mentioning the name of the destination country in the title of the thread.

You need to produce the provisional degree certificate or the final semester mark sheet. At least this was the case for Mumbai Consulate.

Edulix_Editor EE Sir, I agree with nimbus_2000 too. Indeed, these VI threads are likely to disappear amidst the other VI threads for destinations in the US. Also, I am not sure if all countries in Europe actually have a formal Visa Interview in this manner. Atleast, speaking for Netherlands, our visa procedures, since they are mostly handled by the university (atleast for TU Delft), the entire process becomes quite simple and there is no VI as such. But, indeed with a large number of students inclined towards studying in Germany, I expect more VI threads to come up in the near future. A Visa forum for the EU countries would be good in the sense that it will not only include the VI threads but even queries regarding the EU visas, given that the visa formalities aren't as simple as they might appear. In fact, for us folks in EU, things are not just limited to getting the visa to travel to the destination, but there might be other formalities after reaching there to get the Residence Permit. So, discussions on that can also be posted if there is a separate Visa and RP sub forum in the EU forum.

Finally, I apologize for deviating from the discussion. shivguru.rao Congratulations and Wish you success for your future endeavors!!
