Phase 0 - Before arrival - how to apply for a German visa

Most people need a visa before coming to Germany. Find out how to go about it and what the visa requirements are.

Requirements for getting a visa

If you apply for a german visa, two aspects are essential:

  1. Travel health insurance - Provide proof of travel health insurance with a minimum coverage of 30,000 euros. Validity for the entire Schengen area and insurance cover for the complete period of travel are required.
  2. Blocked Account - Proof of a blocked account is usually the second requirement for getting a visa. As a rule, the necessary total amount of the initial deposit is €861 for each month you want to spend in Germany. So, if you want to stay in Germany for one year, this total minimum amount is 10,332 €.

Die Versicherung für die Zahnbehandlung bei Educare24 L (Large) mit einer Leistung 500 Euro finde ich zu gering. Das hat man bei M (Medium) auch. Hier wäre ein höherer Betrag für den Versicherten wünschenswert. Auch wenn es bei L für bis zu 2000 € einen zusätzliche Leistung für unfallbedingten Zahnersatz gibt.
