Please inquire about visa regulations at the German embassy in your home country. Applicants from EU member states do not need a visa.
Please note: Do not enter Germany on a tourist visa!
A tourist visa cannot be changed to the required visa or a training-related residence permit later.
If you have visa-related questions after arriving in Bonn, please contact Bonn's municipal immigration office. Bureaucratic procedures take time. It's therefore important to contact the German embassy or consulate in your country ahead of time so that you know which documents are required when you apply for the visa.
Deutsche Welle will provide all necessary certificates to the successful applicants, which they can use in applying for the necessary German work permit.
If you have been selected as an intern, we will also assist you with any bureaucratic obstacles.
