Extended visa facility for Indian students

The German Foreign Office has informed that an extended visa facility (180 days) has been provided by the German Government to the Indian students coming to Germany.  Earlier Visa was issued only for a period of 3 months and had to renew their visa in Germany within this period. The new facility will be very helpful for the students to overcome their initial problem of finding accommodation before applying for an extension of visa. This has been made possible through the persistent efforts of the Embassy of India (Science and Technology Wing)
