    Hello all!Smile I have a concern that is troubling my mind for a long time, hope someone can help me out. The thing is, I completed my in 2014 and worked for a private company for a brief period of 4 months after which I resigned (as I didn’t like the nature of my job) and I’ve been making preparations for my higher studies (took GRE & TOEFL, sent applications to universities etc, i.e., I’ve been “unemployed” since then). Moreover, I do not have an experience certificate or relieving order given by my X employer. My concern is about the question “What did you do after your UG?” during the visa interview. Is it better to lie outright and say I never worked after my UG or tell the truth that I worked for a few months, but for which I do not have a proof (other than my payslips)?Think Could someone speculate as to what would be the best strategy to tackle this peculiar situation that I’m facing….?d’oh!
    PS: It’s almost impossible for me to get an experience certi or relieving order from my x employer now, if I’m insisted by the VO to produce one .
    Thanks in advance

    I am going to Germany for my masters I have scholarship and some amount of my fees waivered. But I would still need funds to pay my fees. I have opened blocked account also for the difference amount apart from scholarship. But the funds for my left over fees I’m funding myself from my current savings. When They ask me about funds , can I say I’m funding myself from 4 yrs employment( using which I also paid first installment of my fees) and have scholarship or do I have to show any proof of funds? like my bank account statement?

    I have my visa appointment on 26 th of sep, however the deadline for enrollment in my university (Hohenheim,Germany) is 15 oct 2016. What is the best way to get my visa before 14 oct, as I cannot take the appointment before that because my blocked account needs to be done which is possible only by 25th oct through kotak mahinder.

    • No, you are not running late, But i want to suggest you to get in touch with your college or admission coordinator and discuss your case with them. They may agree to issue you deferral if embassy take more time than normal. It also help you in Embassy Interview if they ask you about course start date and limited time. Make sure you know about what is the next batch start date of your course and your college or university agree to issue you deferral in case of time issue. According to German Mission, They normally take 10–12days after interview.

      If you’re applying for Long Term Visa i.e. More than 90 days stay in Germany, Embassy may take more time to issue visa (Normally 15–20 Days).
