I have applied for the Job seeking visa to Germany from Bangalore.. Its been 3 weeks now.. No response.
Is it possible they call you prior to getting the visa, to collect the passport?
Sometimes, it takes time. Depending upon your case like if you are married, if your work location and permanent location is different. They verify all the basic documents and verify the details about your employment. And, if its long that means its good news they must be doing their work.2 months now.. nothing yet.
Does it take this long?
Thank you Friedmann!I can say from experience, German authorities can sometimes take a very long time, similar to bureaucracy anywhere. And, again from my experience, it doesn't hurt to ask about the current status. Sometimes paperwork does get lost or "falls under the table" as Germans say. I wish the state here was always as efficient and flawless as the cliche would make it appear but it just isn't. If you were provided with a phone number or email I'd suggest making a very polite inquiry about the status of your paperwork. Good luck.
