Germany Student Visa Rejection Reasons

Applying for a German visa can be a simple process. You have to just submit all the documents and clear the interview. You wait for a long anxiously to hear about the outcome of your visa application. If the visa application is accepted. Congratulations, you are ready to fly to Germany. But it will be discouraging to get a negative response. But why was your German visa denied? This article will list some of the most common reasons and also suggest ways to obtain a visa.

German Student Visa Rejection – Germany is one of the most sought-after study-abroad destinations for Indians and students globally due to its low tuition fees. Anyone not living under a rock would be aware that public universities in Germany charge low or no tuition fees for students pursuing graduation and post-graduation studies. Aspirants are only required to pay a minimal administration fee every year as their education fee for public universities. Also, universities in Germany offer courses in English so that overseas students who do not speak in German or are not well-versed in it can find it convenient to study here. Due to this very reason, every year lakhs of students apply to Germany for higher education. However, the dreams of a lot of aspirants prematurely come to an end when their German Student Visa is rejected.

Top Reasons for German Student Visa Rejections

Incomplete/Incorrect Application Details

The most common reason which leads to the rejection of a student visa is incomplete or misleading information. Make sure that you submit all the correct and complete information and documents so as to prevent any chances of rejection.

Unable to meet Financial Requirements

While the tuition fee is waived in the case of a public university and candidates are only required to pay a minimal administration fee per year. However, candidates are required to be financially stable to be able to live in the country and cover their other expenses such as living costs in Germany. To take care of this, the government of Germany has introduced the Blocked Account, where candidates are required to keep the money for their monthly use. Often candidates overlook this very important factor leading to their rejection of a German student visa.

Falling Short of Academic Achievements

Candidates looking to apply to public and private universities are required to show academic achievements to be able to meet the exceptional academic standards maintained by the country. Students are unable to match such standards leading to the cancellation of their German student visas. The student visa could also be rejected if the issuing administration feels the student would not be able to cope with the prevalent education system in Germany.

Insufficient Language Skills

One of the biggest factors for German visa rejection is the inability to meet language skills. Candidates who are applying to German public universities would be required to have basic German skills. The candidate would be required to be able to read, understand and speak the basic German language. A lot of times, if the selected course is taught in German, the interview would also be conducted in German. Candidates would be required to know both the German language as well as to be fluent in English providing proof of language proficiency for both. This is a major factor and a reason why German student visas are rejected. Check out how to write the Cover Letter for German Student Visa.

Lack of Interview Skills

The face-to-face interview for your German student visa is extremely important and is a deciding factor for your student visa. Candidates who go half-prepared or provide hesitant answers often miss out on the opportunity of getting their student visa. The interviewer expects the candidate who wishes to study among the best universities in Germany to be aware of the country, state, city, university and study programmes.

Reapply for Your Student Visa

You also have a chance of re-applying for your student visa to Germany. You can solve the reasons behind the rejection and reapply with a fee of 60 EUR. The processing time is around 25 days. But for this to succeed, you must identify and learn from your mistakes.

Form A applicants to submit three-year tax clearance certificates effective today

Effective today, customers initiating Form A are requested to submit valid tax clearance certificates (TCCs) covering three years in line with a directive by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

As at yesterday, most banks had communicated the new requirement.

A mail seen by The Guardian reads: “Effective Thursday, 1 June 2023, customers initiating Form A requests will be required to provide a valid Tax Clearance Certificate (TCC) for the three years immediately preceding the current year of assessment.

“This is in addition to uploading all other required documents on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Trade Monitoring System (TRMS) portal for Form A requests. This also applies to all requests currently awaiting FX allocation regardless of the stage on the TRMS portal.”

TCC serves as proof of meeting tax obligations and ensures compliance with the provisions of Section 85 (2) of the Personal Income Tax Act 2004 (as amended).

While underscoring the inconvenience this might cause their customers, the banks insisted the new regulation is mandatory.

They added: “We understand that this may cause some inconveniences and we sincerely apologise for any strain that this may cause you. However, we are mandated by law to comply with tax regulations to maintain the integrity of the financial system.”

But some analysts have taken to social media to demand from state tax offices to shun the temptation of turning tax clearance into money-making avenues on account of the directive.

Tinubu Has Ordered Palliatives To Cushion Effects Of Subsidy Removal – Kyari

The group chief executive officer (GCEO) of Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari, has disclosed that President Bola Tinubu has ordered the putting in place of palliatives to cushion the effect of removal of fuel subsidy on Nigerians.

He also insisted that there was no going back on subsidy removal, as it was quite apparent that Nigeria can no longer afford the subsidy payment.

The NNPCL boss, who disclosed these after meeting behind-closed doors with members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, said the NNPCL won’t continue to be sole importer of oil in the country.

Kyari stated: “There is a gradual process now of making a flexible and single effect regime. Everyone will be able to have access to foreign exchange and there is a transition going on now.

“And NNPC cannot continue to be sole importer. We know that this is going to vanish and the market will stabilise this.”

Kyari also confirmed ongoing rehabilitation of the nation’s four refineries, saying one of them will start operations this year.

“There is an ongoing process of rehabilitation and one of the refineries will come on stream this year. The second will come on stream next year and the third will come in 2025,” he stated.

Noting that the country can no longer sustain the subsidy regime, the GCEO said subsidy bills have piled up.

He stated: “The country is not able to settle NNPC for the money we are spending on the subsidy. Therefore, pricing this petroleum at the market is the right thing to do at this time. We believe that this will benefit the overall country in the long run and in a long term.

“I am aware that Mr President has directed some engagement and some palliatives will be put in place, and I am very sure this will happen.”

Kyari further said while there was provision for subsidy in 2022, not a single Naira was provided to finance the subsidy in 2023.

He continued: “And ultimately, while we held back our fiscal obligations, we still have a net balance of over N2.8 trillion that the federation should have given back to the NNPC.

“For any company, when you have negative N2.8 trillion, there is no company in the whole of Africa that will lend to you. You cannot have receivables. The provision of subsidy is there but absolutely there is no funding for it. It means it is only on paper. So, it doesn’t exist.

“So we no longer can bear it because of liquidity. If we continue we will run into defaults and the defaults of NNPC is the default of Nigeria. Once NNPC goes into defaults and liquidity, it affects every borrowing done by the country. Even the sub-nationals. Your lenders will come back to you and say your country can no longer pay.”

On the benefits of subsidy removal, Kyari said when President Tinubu declared in his inaugural speech that subsidy was gone, the bond market appreciated within 24 hours.

Tinubu’s target, he pointed out, was to have 7 per cent growth of GDP, which he said cannot be achieved if there is distortion in demands and consumption patterns.

He added: “It is nothing else other than the statement around subsidy and balancing of the apex market. These two elements are major concern that every investor all over the world, every partner that we have is worried about. What is your apex regime and how do you deal with your subsidy?

“They know that this subsidy constitutes a huge amount of money and this country may not be able to survive and pay its debts. It is very clear that everybody understands this.

“Before today, the average subsidy level was N400 billion every month. That means every month you can do one major capital project from money that you do not have. This is really what it means. There is nothing anybody can do about it. There is this common argument that the masses will suffer.

“That we are going to have problems with them. I agree. That once you increase prices of this proportion, as it has happened, it will have impact on inflation. There is no doubt about it. It is very typical also, It goes up and down. The market determines what happens next.”

People who drink this every day die earlier than others!

One of the best-selling soft drinks in Nigeria is Coca Cola, which has been popular for a number of years. Although many people have stopped drinking soft drinks, there are still many people who consume this drink on a daily basis.

Many have switched to sugar-free soft drinks, but soft drinks are actually soft drinks even if they are sugar-free. Most of us probably know that water is the best and healthiest thing we can drink, but once in a while the temptation for a glass of soft drink can be too great.

Some people drink soda every day, while others only drink it once in a while. The question is how dangerous is it to drink soda, and does it matter if we drink a little bit of it every day?

Soft drinks have a shelf life of 1 to 2 years, but old soft drinks do not taste particularly good. Although it is not dangerous to drink soft drinks that have expired, the quality deteriorates over time.


This is what happens to your body if you drink soda every day

If you drink sugary soft drinks every day in addition to your usual diet, you can be pretty sure that your weight will increase. If you replace 8 glasses of water with soda instead, you’ll get as much as over 5,000 extra calories. Someone did an experiment and drank 10 glasses of soda every day for a month. The result? 10 extra kilos!

You increase the risk of heart problems considerably by drinking soda every day. As little as one extra glass of soda a day increases the risk of heart problems by as much as 20 percent!

Drinking a lot of soft drinks also increases the risk of asthma and COPD. Someone who smokes and also drinks soft drinks daily has a 6 percent greater risk of the diseases than someone who neither drinks soft drinks nor smokes.

Increases the risk of early death

According to, drinking soft drinks is linked to an increased risk of dying earlier than those who drink, for example, water. In a study where subjects drank more than two glasses of soft drink a day, they had a 17 percent higher risk of dying after 16 years than those who drank less than one glass of soft drink.

Both sugar-containing and sugar-free soft drinks are linked to a shorter life. Daily consumption of soft drinks also increases the risk of obesity, bad teeth and deficiencies in vitamins and minerals that are important to us. Unfortunately, children have the largest daily intake of soft drinks and work should certainly be done here.

Equally bad results with both regular soft drinks and soft drinks

The fructose in soft drinks can lead to reduced insulin sensitivity, which in turn can lead to cardiovascular disease, regardless of whether you are overweight or not. Soft drinks can change the composition of the intestinal bacteria. These have an impact on health which can lead to obesity, inflammatory diseases and cardiovascular diseases.

Although it tastes good with an ice-cold soft drink, especially in the heat, water should be the preferred drink that you consume daily. In addition to the risk of early death and diseases related to drinking soft drinks, you should know that you also age faster by drinking a lot of soft drinks.

Stick to water! It is absolutely the best thing you can do for your body.
