General Information

Researchers are third country citizens who:

1. Have a doctoral degree or possess a suitable qualification for direct admission to a doctoral program, and

2. Selected by a research institution and granted entry into the territory of an EU Member State,

3. Conduct research that would normally require such a degree.

Note: This also includes PhD students.

If the applicant has obtained a PhD (individual PhD) within the framework of a work contract or research agreement with a German university or research institution, he/she must apply for a research visa.

Foreign students who have been admitted to a German university for a doctoral degree or to a full-time doctoral program (systematic doctoral program) may apply for a doctoral student visa. A systematic doctoral program should include a training program that includes a curriculum, usually with an interdisciplinary focus. For more information, please contact the German University. The admission school decides whether it needs the verification certificate from the Audit Department.

If your family wants to move with you, it is recommended that you submit your application at the same time. Please refer to visa information about Family Reunification and Accompanying Children.
