This post contains a very good information about rescheduling the visa stamping time period, posted by prikulkarni. Can you get this linked to your first post in this thread.

And, preferably, sticky this thread of yours please. This is a very good thread about visa and I don't want this to go down the thread list after this year though the link is available in scofield's "All you need to know about studying Masters in Germany" thread. Some might miss to tread through links to get the right information.

Hyperlinked the post and also added it to the FAQ section. Thanks for tip. Very Happy

I don't have the rights to sticky or unsticky the threads. But we can ask Rogue to do it. We can unsticky the German Visa queries thread for this year once the application season is over.

Few more questions for the FAQ's section in the first post.

Question: How long it takes for the visa to be approved?

Answer: It generally takes 4 weeks for approval. The approval period for winter intake 14/15 were between 2 to 8 weeks.

Q: My future course mate received the visa approval, but he/she completed VI after me. Why is my visa approval delayed? Does it mean my visa application is rejected?
A: No, your application is not rejected. It takes different duration for different people though you are going to the same course.

I have a question to all the folks in Germany. If you know anyone who has studied previously in one of the EU countries and is now pursuing a PhD in Germany or anything at all, the help will be appreciated.

So, I have finalized my PhD with Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin and will most likely start from September/October depending on when the personnel department can make the contract start from. In which case I have roughly a month or less, to finish the visa procedures.

So now, I have the following questions:

1. Since I already have a Dutch residence permit which is valid until December, will I need to make a visa application for the D-type Schengen visa to enter Germany again or will that not be necessary? Will my Dutch RP suffice in that case?

2. Once I enter Germany, I suppose I can apply for the German RP? What about applications for the work permit?

3. Now, I didn't require legalization/apostille for any of my documents when I came to TU Delft since that was not necessary, now my question is do I have to get my marksheets and certificates legalized then for the visa application? If so, is there a way to get it done here or do I need to go back to India for this purpose?

Any information/help is appreciated.

TIA

Rogue, In Germany (as in other EU countries), a PhD position is considered as a job. You will be required to enroll in a University because Helmholtz Zentrum cannot really award you a degree - so you may also be eligible for certain student benefits. You do not need a separate visa to enter Germany, but you will need a German work permit before you officially start.

When you move to Berlin, register yourself (Anmeldung) in the city at the Bürgeramt/ Bürgerbüro. You will need a correspondence address for this. If you change your address later, you will have to notify the authorities and also get this changed on your residence permit. Anyway, once you have this go to the Ausländerbehörde with the following documents:
- Letter of admit/ Certificate from Uni/ Immatrikulationsbescheinigung
- Work contract/ Proof of income
- Bachelor/ Master degrees and certificates certified by a German notary (costs about 10-15€)
- Passport
- Insurance documents
- Anmeldung

You can get a temporary permit (Fiktionsbescheinigung) almost immediately which will be valid as long as your application is under process. Your work permit and residence permit are the same application by the way. If you are getting a full position, I would suggest applying for the Blue Card directly. Also make sure you take someone with you who speaks German. I am not sure about Berlin, but people in German bureaucracy are not the most friendly folk.

Rogue, anuragm

I don't know if it is similar for PhD, but here goes:

I have to study in Portugal for one semester, and I already have a German Residence Permit. I found out that I cannot enrol/study in Portugal with my German Permit (that is understandable since I cannot stay in Portugal for more than 3 months). However, I found that I cannot apply for a Portuguese Residence Permit without having a Portuguese visa. Hence, I had to apply for a Portuguese visa in Germany.

It may be similar if you enter Germany with a Dutch Residence Permit. The free movement within the Schengen Area is, AFAIK, just for tourist purposes.

Again, it might be different for your situation; just letting you know Smile .
