Entry from virus variant areas
For persons residing in so-called virus variant areas (https://www.rki.de/covid-19-risikogebiete) with a particularly high prevalence of mutations of the virus, transport to Germany and entry in accordance with the CoronaEinreiseV are currently prohibited in principle. This also applies to fully vaccinated persons. Exceptions are only possible in very few cases, for example for persons with residence and right of abode in Germany. (https://www.bmi.bund.de/SharedDocs/faqs/DE/themen/bevoelkerungsschutz/coronavirus/reisebeschraenkungen-grenzkontrollen/II-reisebeschraenkungen-uer-einreise-aus-virusvarianten-gebieten/welche-ausnahmen-vom-befoerderungsverbot-und-den-einreisebeschraenkungen-aus-virusvarianten-gebieten-gibt-es.html).
For students and scientists from virus variant areas, this means that a presence study or a research stay in Germany for the WS 2021/2022 can currently not be ensured. Please note that entry is also not possible if a study place commitment has already been granted by the German university: Since entry is not possible, visas cannot be issued as long as a country is considered a virus variant area.
Please inform yourself regularly about the risk classification of your home country.
The application deadlines are strict. All postal submissions of your documents should arrive at the International Students Office before those dates or will not be accepted
Please apply as early as possible for the Studienkolleg (preparatory college) and German courses because getting a visa usually takes six to eight weeks.
