Visa application (Visum beantragen)

Visa applications to travel to Germany and begin employment and / or to conduct research at TU Darmstadt need supporting documentation from the university. After you register with us, we will assess your situation and provide any relevant documentation for your visa appointment.

Important: If you are not a European Union national (including Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) and have been offered an employment contract with TU Darmstadt then you need a visa to travel to Germany which explicitly permits employment. Without this visa you will not be able to sign your employment contract. We also support visa applications for your family members.

Comprehensive information on the relevant categories of visa as well as the visa application process can be found at -> make-it-in-germany.comPlease also check the website of the relevant German mission (Auslandsvertretung) of the country you are normally resident in for any country specifc additional requirements.
