Residence permit

Lupe [1]

Non-EU-citizens who want to study longer than 3 months in Germany are required to get a residence permit for study purposes (in case they did not already get a visa that is valid for the whole time of their stay). This applies equally to non-EU-citizens who got an entry visa before coming to Germany (which expires after 3 months) and to those who need no visa to enter the country.

As a non-EU-citizen you must apply for the residence permit for study purposes [2] within 3 months upon your arrival. You do this at the "Ausländerbehörde" (Immigration Office) directly. Should you have any questions, though, you can send an email to binstud@international.tu-berlin.de [3] or visit my colleagues from the TU Berlin visa advising unit during their office hours [4] in room H51.

You need:
  • Letter of admission or enrollment confirmation (you can download it from your TUB student account)
  • Passport with a long enough period of validity
  • Residence registration confirmation 
  • Proof of health insurance
  • 1 biometric passport photo
  • Proof of sufficient financial support (documents that prove you have enough funds to cover the costs of living, e.g. a bank statement, an official letter in which your parents guarantee financial support or a scholarship gran)
  • Application fee of at least €100
You can also apply directly at the authorities:
