I would like to apply for a language visa? How does it work?

If you want to apply for a new language visa or extend your visa in the form of a language visa, you can book the appropriate language courses with us. Important here is the number of hours. Usually you need 72 hours per week (96 teaching units) to get the language visa.

Normally you have to book a minimum number of German courses. Please check in advance with the consulate in your country how many courses you need to book.

Then you can register at the DeutschAkademie Vienna. When registering, you can choose the visa course. In case of previous knowledge we also need the placement test. After that we can make a reservation for you. As soon as you have paid for the German courses, we will issue a booking confirmation. You will need to present this to the embassy to apply for or extend your visa.
