Visa Requirements and Registration

The visa application is completely in your hands and it has to be taken care of in your country of residence. It should be done as soon as possible. The 2-3-week long summer school is not considered a study trip or semester abroad and you may enter Germany simply as a tourist, as long as you don’t extend your stay over 3 months. In case a student should need a visa for Germany, EBS will assist with providing a) the acceptance letter and b) a proof of accommodation. If the embassy requires these documents in the original form, then the EBS will charge a fee of 50 Euro for courier costs.
