How to apply for Visa

If you plan to come to Germany, please note: for information on entry and residence regulations it is essential to contact the competent representation of the Federal Republic of Germany (German embassy or German consulate) in your home country in good time.

Language training at our school can provide the basis for an application for an education and training visa. In this case, one of the prerequisites is an officially issued confirmation by activ lernen stating your intention to study with us. According to our terms, you must conclude a contract for a course (we recommend minimum three months)  and a prepayment of 50% of the total amount of the course fee +inscription fee is to be effected.  This way you will confirm the confirmation letter you need for your visa application.

All German embassies and consulates have websites with information on visa as well. Please find a list here.

Regarding the course start, please let us know should your home country fail to issue your visa in due time. We will then postpone your course start to a later point of time. A termination of the contract with refund of paid fees is only possible if you get a negative answer to your visa application. We  will then deduct a handling charge of € 80. In this case please provide the official rejection letter issued by  the competent German authority in your home country.

 Please note:

The contract form needs to be filled in completely – including the date, you wish to start the course – signed, and sent back to our school scanned by email.
