Before contacting the consulate, please consult this section. If the consular section receives a question that is not answered in this list, it will not respond to your mail. Thank you for your understanding.
If your studies exceed 90 days, you must apply for a national visa by presenting the required documentation for this case. If it is a short-term course that does not exceed 90 days, you can travel without a visa.
For travel related to employment contracts or paid internships, the requirement to obtain a visa remains in effect, even if the paid work you will be doing is for a period of less than 90 days.
You need a letter of invitation from friends or relatives who are guarantors of accommodation during your stay. The characteristics of the form or document as well as the procedure to obtain it vary for each country. In the case of Germany, an informal letter signed by your relatives or friends is sufficient. The letter must indicate the address, the degree of relationship and the duration of stay. You can present the printed letter at the immigration control. It does not have to be an original, nor does it require authentication of the signature or apostille.

You go out in your car, enjoy the view of the streets around you, drive like never before and suddenly: pfff! You hear the sound of your flat tire. You “shore to shore”, you call your insurance company for advice on what to do and that’s when you find out that your insurance policy is no longer in force.
The main reason people purchase insurance is to be protected in case of an automobile accident and to be able to resolve the incident in the best way possible, whether the situation is the result of the driver’s actions or not.
As you will see, having a valid insurance is easier than you might think and it is a matter of minutes to check if you are protected or not, just as it is also a matter of minutes to make sure if you are not already protected.
There are no EU-wide rules on additional voluntary insurance. Check the conditions of your policy before traveling abroad, as insurers may apply different rules in different countries. In particular, your insurance could be limited according to time (e.g. up to one month abroad) or distance (e.g. up to 150 km beyond the border of your home country) and exclude some types of risks (e.g. theft) in certain countries.
Motor insurance premiums vary from one EU country to another, mainly due to differences in contract law, risk assessment and indemnity systems, or the complexity and cost of international claims handling.
