German Embassy Student Visa Interview Questions

Majority of the students again and again ask this question about German embassy visa interview questions. Preparation for interview in Germany embassy for student visa is not so easy. In German embassy, visa officers ask too much difficult questions and argue with applicants to check weather applicants are a genuine student or not. Because visa officers have authority to ask, so they can ask about anything from applicant.
These questions which German visa officers ask become more and more easy, if you do all the process from first step ‘taking admission in German university’ to last step of interview by your own. Because when do all the things by your own then you definitely know about all the information regarding your course, university and financial status etc. So, you can answer and argue in a better way. When you have complete information then visa officer mostly not give you tough time but if you go for interview without proper preparation then they will definitely give you very tough time.

Before telling you about student visa interview questions you need to understand few things. These things are also as much as important as interview.

  • Take appointment from German Embassy Pakistan’s website before go to submit your file in Embassy
  • Appointment is necessary if you want to submit your file in German Embassy Islamabad. If you want to submit your file in German Consulate Karachi then you can you without appointment. My suggestion is for you is that even if you want to go German Consulate Karachi, you definitely book appointment first and then go. It will create a good impact on visa officers.
  • Mostly officers takes your interview when you visit German Embassy first time for submission of your file. So, you need to do proper preparation of interview before go to submission of file. Many students just go rationally, not with proper preparation of interview and face very difficult situation.
  • You must fill your visa application form and all other required documents in a clear and proper writing before go for submission of file. When I visit German Embassy many times for student visa then I see lot of students specially girls not fill visa form and other documents at home and they face very awkward situation in Embassy at the time of file submission.
  • So, fill your correct visa form, security questionnaire, declaration and prepare a proper file as required by embassy.
  • Please make your file simple and according to the requirement of embassy. Don’t put too many extra irrelevant pages and information, and supporting documents which are not necessary. Only put valid required and authentic supporting documents in visa file. A 30 pages simple and most accurate file is 100 percent better then a file who have irrelevant 300 pages.

  • Attach proper bio-metric pictures with your visa file. Do’t attached photoshop edited pictures. Visa officer will refuse these kind of pictures and this thing create a serious problem for you at the time of file submission or interview. Mostly if you don’t have bio-metric pictures then officer didn’t refuse your file but give you some time for bio metric pictures. So, you need go out from embassy and bring new bio-metric pictures and come back to embassy for file submission. This thing waste your too much time and create an awkward situation for you.
  • Bring enough money with you (visa fee plus extra minimum Rs. 5000) whenever you visit embassy for file submission or interview. You need money for AMEX Receipt, some photocopies, sometimes for bio-metric pictures, for shuttle service etc. Embassy just take the visa fee all other extra money is necessary for you for AMEX Receipt, some photocopies, sometimes for bio-metric pictures and for shuttle service charges etc.
  • Properly dress-up first and then go for file submission and interview. Properly dress-up doesn’t mean that you become a Shahrukh Khan or Sulman Khan or wear a suite. Because you need to show yourself a good student, so dress-up like a average student mean a neat dress pent and a dress shirt with or without tie but not wear a suite. Also not dress-up like a funky boy. Simplicity create more good impact  as compere to over or funky style.

Keep in mind all these instructions because these instructions are the experiences of too many successful students who studying right now in German Universities.

Now i’m going to share with you some important questions which mostly visa officer asked from students during visa interview. We prepare all these questions after taking views of several Pakistani students who are studying here in Germany and successfully clear their interviews. So, prepare correct, relevant and exact answers of these questions. During interview of give relevant and precise answers. Don’t talk irrelevant or extra, beyond from the answer. If you think just saying ”Yes”   to visa officer as a answer is good then ‘Yes’ is the most appropriate answer. Only answer what visa officer asked not put extra things, that can create too much problem for you. During interview be relax, first listen and then answer.

Because visa officer asked questions about different things like general questions, about finance and other things. So, we divide all these question into different parts. You need to prepare answers of all these parts/questions according to your own file and supporting documents.

You need to memorize and practice these questions. Try to practice one or two months before going for interview.

Change answers according to your case, questions will be remain same as it is.
