I would like to apply for a language visa. How does it work?

If you want to apply for a new language visa or extend your visa in the form of a language visa, you can book the appropriate language courses with us. Important here is the number of hours. Usually you need a total of 72 hours (96 teaching units) to get the language visa.

Normally you have to book a minimum number of German courses. Please check in advance with the consulate in your country how many courses you need to book.

Then you can register at the DeutschAkademie Berlin Alexanderplatz. When registering, you can choose the visa course. In case of previous knowledge we also need the placement test. After that we can make a reservation for you. As soon as you have paid for the German courses, we will issue a booking confirmation. You will need to present this to the embassy to apply for or extend your visa.

Can you help me with the visa?

We will be happy to provide you with an invoice and booking confirmation for your visa application.

For more information, please check with the respective embassy in your country, as criteria may vary.

How is the visa course structured?

The course takes place from Monday to Saturday with 15 hours in-house (Monday-Friday at DeutschAkademie Berlin Alexanderplatz, Alexanderstr. 9, 10178 Berlin) and 3 hours online (online Plus Course on Saturday).

If desired, the visa course can also be done completely online.
