Students will soon be receiving a mandatory Visa Status Survey from OGS, unless you have already informed us that you have obtained your visa or if we know that a visa is not required based on your citizenship. Please let us know us know where you are in the visa process by completing that survey as quickly as possible once you receive it. It is imperative that you let us know if you are struggling, need of assistance or are delayed in applying for your visa. If this is the case, please contact OGS immediately at email@example.com or 212-998-4242.
If you have already received your visa, OGS requires that you upload a copy using the Visa Upload. If you have not received your visa yet, please indicate this on the Visa Status Survey and then upload a copy of your visa to us once you receive it. Students who are planning to apply for their residence permit directly after arriving in Berlin must upload a PDF copy of their appointment confirmation via the same Visa Upload.
