You are going to apply in German Embassy for study visa and need to know how to prepare Study Visa File. Then here I will tell you some important tips, which will help you to prepare a good Study Visa File. As you know that you need to submit two set of documents in German Embassy Islamabad or in German Consulate Karachi. I told you in my previous articles also, when you prepare your visa file, then must make three set of all required documents. Requirement of the Germany Embassy and Consulate is two set of documents, but why i’m asking for third file you will be understand later on.
According to check list of German Embassy, you make one file with your original documents without visa form, applicants declaration and security questionnaire. Arrange all the original documents in according to checklist of German Embassy or Consulate.
Then make second study visa file with original filled visa form along with all your original documents photocopies, applicants declaration and security questionnaire. Attached only photocopies of your degrees, certificates, bank statements, blocked account and all other necessary documents in this visa file. You only need to attach visa form, applicants declaration and security questionnaire by filled and signed by your hand.
Then make third study visa file with photocopies of all the documents of second file. In this file you can also attach photocopies of visa form, applicants declaration and security questionnaire. Must arrange all the documents in all three visa files, according to checklist of German Embassy Pakistan. Then on the day of file submission or interview submit only second and third visa file in German Embassy.
When visa officer will ask you about original documents then provide him/her required document from your first visa file. Visa officer will compare and check the originality of photocopies and original documents and return original documents back to you. Now I think you will understand, why I told you to make one visa file with your original documents. It will be very easy and organized for you to show your original documents when you already arrange them like a visa file. Because in Germany Embassy many students face an embarrassing situation. When visa officer ask for any original document and they spend too much time in finding of that document.
German Embassy not bring any original document except your Passport. They only take the photocopies of all your documents. So, you need to submit only the photocopies along with visa form, applicants declaration and security questionnaire. When visa officer ask for any original document, then you can provide that document. After checking, the visa officer will give that document back to you.
Many students do mistake and attach all the original documents in required two visa files. Then on the day of file submission, they face very embarrassing behavior from visa officer. Sometime visa officer gives you time to rearrange the file without original documents and sometime they told you to come next time with proper arranged visa file. So, to avoid this embarrassing situation better to arrange documents as I told you above. I also done the same mistake first time and then I learnt what I told you above.
