AMASE students must have a valid Visa for the respective country they study at.
As an EU-citizen, you do not need any Visa. EU-citizens may live, work and travel in all countries which are part of the Schengen-agreement.
Students from outside the EU have to apply for a Visa at least twice: The first time to get a Visa for the Entrance University, the second time to get a Visa for the Second University. If you should decide to write the Master’s Thesis back at the Entrance University, you will have to apply a third time.
We recommend you to apply for a Schengen-Visa, if possible. With this Visa, you will also not have any problems to get to Germany for the Integration Week and PSS.
But even though you only have a Visa for one of the other countries, you are usually allowed to travel all over Europe. But these regulations may vary from country to country, so please get in touch with the respective embassy.
The Visa procedure can take up to several months in different countries, so you should start the application as soon as possible.
Furthermore, the Visa procedure has become stricter and are more controlled within the last years.
Especially for Non-European students without scholarship, the embassies might ask for a proof of payment showing that you have already transferred the participation costs for the first semester.
Therefore we recommend you to do the payment as soon as possible, otherwise your Visa might be rejected.
Self-financing students from outside the EU coming to Germany have to open a so called “Sperrkonto“. This is a blocked account which proofs that you have enough money for living in Germany for one year.
