APS Certificate Requirements for Indian Students

APS Certificate requirements for Indian Students 

APS Certificate requirement is the latest for students while applying, for a visa to study at a German university, at visa office or German consulate in India. Not an all-new process for German Immigration, as this is an existing requirement in China and Vietnam, but shockingly new to the students from India!

Many thought APS Certificate was only for a few countries in which Germany’s visa offices expected to deal with fake certificates and documents from many students while applying for a visa to study in Germany.¬†

Why APS Certificate?

Suppose you look at it from a different perspective of the requirement for APS Certificate . Why should we bother about it since we don’t even think about risking our reputation and future on fake certificates or documents?

Whereas it’s learned that by introducing the APS Certificate the workload of the visa offices of Germany is reduced and it helps to take quick decisions! If that’s true, then it’s most welcoming news to those thousands of young aspirants from India looking forward to studying at German universities.

Again, as per the German consulates and visa offices, half the job is done by APS India by introducing the requirement of an APS Certificate. After the certificate is completed, the German visa offices can act swiftly and decide on the applications in time. That makes the process uniform and transparent and saves everybody’s time.

          APS Certificate Requirements for Indian students generally apply to those with 12th-grade school education and above. You can migrate without having an APS certificate for a Bachelor’s degree in English.
