Upon arrival in Germany it is necessary to apply for a visa in most cases. Have a look at the FIA website for detailed information and instructions on how to apply for the right visa for your stay. The special requirements for the visa are listed below. Fullfilling them is easy.

Requirements for getting a visa

If you apply for a visa for entering Germany, special formalities need to be considered.

  1. Provide documentary evidence 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. Proof of a blocked account is usually the second prerequisite for obtaining a visa. The total amount of at least €10,332 (for 1 year) plus any bank charges incurred must be paid into the blocked account in Germany. Of this amount, a maximum of €861 may be disposed of each month. In addition, the course costs of the qualification must be covered.

Take out an entitlement insurance

What does entitlement insurance mean? With an entitlement insurance you get the opportunity to reinstate a private health insurance contract after an interruption. For example, you may want to suspend your private health insurance if you go abroad for a while, but want to take out private health insurance again after coming back. In this case, you can choose an entitlement insurance. Your big advantage: There is no new health check.

Barmenia offers one of the best health insurance plans in Germany for physicians. An entitlement insurance allows you to insure yourself later, without a health check, via the physician tariffs of Barmenia. Let us advise you.
