Visa Requirements

Visa requirements differ among countries, and depending on your own nationality. Please inquire as early as possible (at least 3 months prior to the trip and preferably immediately after registering) about visa requirements at a German consulate. In order to find the closest German embassy or consulate to your home address and to find out whether you need to apply for a visa for Germany, please visit the homepage of the German Foreign Office.

To enter Germany a valid ID card or passport is required anyway.

For all questions and the application for a visa please contact the German embassy or consulate in your home country. Please make an appointment at the embassy early enough! After payment receipt we will automatically send the confirmation of registration (invitation letter) as a hard copy per airmail and an electronic copy to your e-mail address if you indicated »I need a visa« on your registration.

Please pay attention to enter your postal address and your personal data correctly!

Please note that the Bauhaus Summer School does not give any further support to the visa application process. Obtaining a visa remains the sole responsibility of the participant.


All participants should have their own insurance to cover illness and accident because you will not be insured automatically during your stay at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.

Make sure your health insurance covers you in your destination country.

German embassies and consulates require all applicants to procure health insurance coverage for their stay in Germany. All applicants have to provide the corresponding certification. The required health insurance can be taken out via internet.

Express Delivery

Optionally we will send the confirmation of registration (invitation letter) as a hard copy by express delivery after having received your additional payment of 80 EUR. Then you will receive the letter within 3 or 4 days. You can choose this option when you register.

Please enter your telephone number and pay attention to enter your postal address (no PO box!) correctly!

We will automatically send your letter by airmail without additional costs for you.
