Visa to Germany for 1 year Visa to Germany for 1 year Square in Munich Square in Munich

My German visa is for a year and Regensburg, the central square with the remains of the fair?

Now about the visa. Germans are not famous hospitality in terms of visa approvals: often give Schengen just for the dates of the trip, and in order not to get rid of the refusal provide a solid set of documents confirming your prosperous life at home.

In theory, a visa can be issued through another, more loyal, Schengen country. But be prepared that if you do not take a trip to the very country on the border can strain you questions like “Why fly to Germany with someone else’s visa?”. Germans practice such greetings.

Editor’s word: two years ago I drove into Germany (Munich) on a Finnish visa and at that time in Finland itself never was. 20 minutes I was interrogated and after made sure that I was there for a couple of days and I was going further, they missed. But There are also cases of deportation.

My first acquaintance with obtaining a Schengen visa to Germany self-crowned success for a period of 1 year. “Little trick” was to the cover letter in which I urged the consul that the visa was Germany for 2019 (all) I really need.

A brief boar plan to capture the Schengen area:

  • fill out the form for a visa to Germany online (great, Yes?:))
  • collect the necessary documents, incl. and print the completed application form
  • apply to the visa application center (in the regions and Moscow) / Embassy (Moscow only)

By the way, Germany is one of those countries that are allowed to serve documents for you to a third party if you have already been imprinted fingers (fingerprinting) after 09/14/2015.

Hotel booking

Visa to Germany for Russians is often issued under the dates of travel and not a day more. Especially if this is your first visa. Therefore do armor is best for the period when you really plan leave. And it is worth taking hotels / hostels / apartments in which you really plan to live!

I book accommodation on Airbnb (← via the link $ 32 as a gift, and здесь >> наш отзыв) – просто мне очень нравится жить вlocal flats :) A printout from the service is suitable for Schengen visas For lovers of hotel gloss, RoomGuru and Booking exist. (here is someone more familiar). I note that Rumguru is looking for tens services, including Buckingu.

Keep in mind that when booking a booking in the form Be sure to indicate your reservation number! Do not forget to check and availability all names and surnames on the booking confirmation, as well as the number phone of the accommodation facility.

Do not be afraid to apply unpaid armor or armor with free cancellation. It’s scary to really cancel them after visa application (ok, the probability of cancellation is small, but it there is).

Chip flights

Visa to Germany will not happen without air tickets. For 2019 I think the coolest search engines are:

  • Skyscanner
  • Aviasales

Why? The editor described here in this article. These aggregators helpful to those who are ready to buy a ticket.

If you have not yet decided on the exact dates of travel to Germany, you can make a temporary booking of air tickets on The pleasure lasts a day, but, as practice shows, the Germans are the case is not checked. After you received a confirmation on mail, follow the link at the very end of the letter at checkmytrip, from where print your fake ticket :( ticket.

Another way out is to buy tickets with a return value. Such practicing, for example, Aeroflot. You can refuse a ticket in within 165 days, money is returned 10 days.

Help with a job for a visa to Germany

Before you start applying for a Schengen visa to Germany, Note that the validity of all certificates is 1 month, including period of consideration of your documents by the consul.

Help from work should look like this:

It is not necessary to indicate wages, but if you specify, it is better that it be above 25,000 rubles.

Bank reference

The embassy mentions help with the movement of funds for three month but not insist. Therefore, the usual certificate of The rest is 100% suitable, and not necessarily in English language. Color printout from Tinkoff’s personal account is accepted.

But a copy of the card and a check from an ATM is not categorically will pass.

Sponsorship letter for a German visa

Pedantic Germans decided to be confused and create a form for sponsorship letter, which, in my opinion, is more convenient than writing свободного формата – смотреть образец >>. Sponsor can speak any third party.

Attach the following documents to the letter:

  • copy of the sponsor’s passport
  • if applicable: birth / marriage certificate
  • financial document from the sponsor (certificate of employment / documents for SP / bank statement)

Questionnaire for Schengen to Germany

German consistency has simplified the procedure for filling the questionnaire so much so that in the fill instructions online form on VisaMetric spelled out even where and in what place you can put an end, and in which it is better not to do it.

Following this pattern, the process of filling in the questionnaire does not seem dark forest, and when submitting documents, you can always refer on the instruction, thus avoiding groundless attacks employees and saving on refilling, which is very often happens to inexperienced tourists.

Do not forget to print all 8 questionnaires.

The need for an urgent visa can only be satisfied with a visa. center in Moscow or at the consulate. The term for consideration of such a visa is 3 working day.

A national visa can be issued at the German Embassy, only by appointment.

Visa to Germany for a child (minors)

Schengen visa for a child includes a package of documents identical to the adult, plus which is necessary attach:

  • sponsorship letter
  • notarized consent for departure from parents / guardian. In the event that one of the parents is not alive – a certificate of of death

In the questionnaire, in the section “covering expenses” we write “the applicant himself”. AT German questionnaire is always indicated, and there are no exceptions.

My main advice – do not be afraid to ask for a multivisa (multiple entry) for a long time. For this you need an accompanying a letter explaining why you need a long-term visa, and reservations on proposed next trip.

If this is the first trip to Europe, the maximum that you beg – visa to Germany for 1 year, which is very good. If german Schengen has already been – turn on the fantasy, because you have the right to request a visa maximum for 5 years. Immediately after the annual impudence is not worth it, especially if you entered this visa to Germany only once – you can risk first 3-year “bid”.

From the beginning of December 2018 on reviews on forums and personal experience there was a tendency to willingly issue visas for a period of 1 year. So that dare! Here is an example of my cover letter. >>

How much time is issued a German visa?

The official version states that the timing of the consideration of documents 14 calendar days. In the visa center of Moscow, you can make an urgent visa for 3 days. In fact, how much is a visa to Germany made, exactly on 100% can not be said: depends on the set of documents and the type visas Most often, a type C visa has time to go beyond 7-9 calendar days. days
