    Hello Setlinners, I have a serious problem concerning my future studies that I need urgent help with. I have been admitted to study software engineering at a university in Berlin, Germany. I don’t have the money (10335eur) to deposit to my blocked account to enable me apply for study visa so I can come to Germany to begin my studies.

    I need information that can lead me to get a letter of commitment from someone who works and live in Germany or a loan for my blocked account to enable me apply for a study visa and move to Germany as soon as possible. I look forward to your help. Thank you.

    Who can offer you this letter of commitment?
    Just anybody or someone related to you?

      I got the information on the German consulate website about obtaining a study visa for students outside the EU who may not have the funds for a blocked account.

        Could you share the complete information that you found from their website?
        That will really help to understand how to get the letter for you and who can actually get it.

      The application is done through the German consulate in Germany by any person or organization that will help me. The German consulate in Germany will issue the person resident in Germany the letter and that will now be forwarded to me and I will present it to the German consulate in my country.

        Okay. This is straightforward and can be worked on.

        We’ll have a look and get back to you.

        In the meantime, please share any update from your side.

    Hi Stephen,

    Do you have a sample of how the letter of commitment looks like, and perhaps the details of the person who can present this letter?

        Okay. What’s the timeline to provide this?

        It’s likely we can find a way to assist you.

    @mangai.stephen do you already have a visa interview appointment?

      No, I need the proof of funds blocked account with 10,332 EUR or the letter of support/hosting before I can apply for a visa. That is what I will use to present when applying for a visa

        I don’t think you need the proof of fund before securing a visa interview appointment. It takes quite some time to be given an appointment, so it’s recommended, if possible, to request for a student visa interview appointment, while you sort out the proof of fund thing.

          Hello Mike, how long do you think it takes to get a visa interview appointment should I apply now? My concern is if I apply now for a visa interview and I get invitation for the interview without the proof of funds, that will not be good. But I will follow your advice. I will apply for the visa this month of may, 2022 but I wish to have the proof of funds in other to apply for a visa. Does anyone have a similar experience?

            You only have to show the proof of fund AFTER the interview. It mustn’t be before or on the interview. So, once more, apply Now to secure an appointment for the visa interview. @sammy is the person that I know with a recent experience. But generally speaking, the waiting time recently has been very long, for most people up to a year. So, you can imagine why you should already apply now. Most of those people who had to wait that long started attending classes remotely from their home countries because the semester had already started.

            So apply now and keep us updated.
