Visa & Insurance

Visa Requirements

Visa requirements vary according to country of origin and nationality. On the website of the German Federal Foreign Office you will find an overview of which countries require a visa. 

Depending on the country, it is very advisable to get information about visa requirements well in advance and to make an appointment with the embassy as soon as possible - preferably directly after your registration or at least three months before your trip.
If you are applying for a specialised course, this might even be before a possible acceptance!

You can find more information - including the address of the embassy responsible for you - here.

If you have indicated in your registration that you need a visa, we will automatically send you a letter of invitation by airmail as well as a copy in PDF format by e-mail after receipt of payment. You will need this document for your visa application.
Therefore, please make sure that your data, your address, and your passport number are correct when you register - this information will appear on the letter.

Beyond this letter of invitation, we unfortunately cannot provide any further assistance with your visa application .

It is your responsibility to make an appointment with the embassy in good time and to submit all other documents needed for visa application.

If your visa application has been denied, please send us the official rejection letter from the embassy. If the documents are correct, you will be refunded the amount you paid, minus 50 EUR processing fee.

If you have more detailed questions regarding visa, please contact the embassy responsible for you.


An accident or illness often happens faster than expected.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to have a valid health and accident insurance during your stay in Weimar.

Usually, proof of international health insurance is required for visa application. However, even if you enter Germany without a visa, you should make sure that you are insured in case of an emergency. Otherwise you will have to pay possible costs yourself.

Therefore, please check in due time whether your insurance policies are valid for your stay in Germany. If not, you should definitely take out international insurance for your time here in Weimar.

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 90 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 send your letter by regular mail without additional costs for you if you need it.
