FAQ - Visa

1. What has to be done in order to obtain a visa for Germany?

For all invited students coming
from countries where a visa is required for entry into Germany:
Once you are invited to join the programme and have accepted this invitation, DESY will send an official invitation letter to you via courier (we need a postal address for this, no post-box, and a mobile phone number).
You need to present the letter to the German embassy in your country,
together with a copy of your medical insurance policy.
Please arrange for a date at the German embassy ONLY when you have these
papers at hand.

2. What kind of information do I have to forward for receiving my visa papers?

To ensure a smooth and fast forwarding of the invitation letter we need your current address and a mobile number for the courier service to deliver the envelope. Please, send the information to summie-org@desy.de once you are invited to join the programme and have accepted the invitation.
