To come to Germany, citizens of many countries in the world need to apply for a German visa. To apply for a visa, you should give the German embassy a reason for coming to Germany.

If you have the slightest doubt about a certain point or do not understand any information, ask at any time in the main group of our community “Facharzt JETZT” on Facebook and Telegram (groups will appear as a folder). We remind you that this article is a guidance article to help you understand things and you should not rely solely on it. You should always return to the official websites. 😊

• The possible reasons could be the following:

• Language course

You registered in a language course, most preferably to study further the German medical language (🇩🇪 die Fachsprache). The longer the course, the better (our recommendation: at least three months). Your application for the medical license should be included for your visa request.

In many countries around the world (like Jordan), the German embassies require a proof of your seriousness to work in Germany, and that is that you learn at least German to a B1 level. Therefore, you cannot apply for a German visa if you did not have at least a German B1 certificate.

• The medical language exam (die Fachsprachenprüfung)

If you got a reply from the approbation authority, and you could book an appointment for the medical language exam (🇩🇪 die Fachsprachenprüfung) or for the medical knowledge exam (🇩🇪 die Kenntnisprüfung), then this will help you to get the visa.
