The German Ambassador had announced that there will be a delay in the issuance of the visas due to the increase in Indian students.
With the increase in the number of Indian applicants wishing to study in Germany, the German ambassador has stated that there will be a delay in the issuance of German visas. Thus, the students will be joining late in the upcoming semester.
After the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, the number of visa applications has increased in all the countries which has led to a delay. Thus, Germany is not the only country facing challenges. The ambassador acknowledged the disappointment and has expressed his wish to issue the visas as quickly as possible.
Some students will not be receiving their visas before the beginning of the semesters this year. He urged the students to reach out to the universities and make them aware of the situation. The German embassy has been working towards a smooth and quick issuance of visas.
The German authorities are also connecting with the universities to alert them of the situation. However, some agents have been good at falsification of documents as it was found that 10-15% of applications have been found fraudulent.
Thus, it has become important to screen the applications thoroughly so that deserving candidates are able to study in Germany. The hike in the number of visa applications from India has overwhelmed Germany. The increase in the number of applications is a pleasurable change and Germany is happy to see Indian students performing well.
