First steps after your acceptance

As soon as the employer returns the acceptance papers the IAESTE national committee will send them to you. Once you get these papers it`s time for you to organize some things:

  • Within 2 weeks fill out the form Confirmation of Acceptance and send it to the national committee in the country where you are enrolled as a student (sometimes there are more forms to fill out and send). Once as we get your Confirmation of Acceptance, we start looking for your accommodation. It is very important that we get the form as soon as possible.

  • If you are not a citizen of the European Union, you need a visa for Germany. Since the visa process may take several weeks, you should apply for a visa at your closest German embassy as soon as possible. For this application you need the acceptance documents you received. Please ask for a "Schengen-Visa". This visa is also valid for most continental European countries.

  • Please make sure your passport is valid for the entire duration of your stay.

  • An International Student Identity Card (ISIC) might help you to get recognized as a student and thus discounts across Europe.

  • Book a flight to Germany. Please make sure the entire duration of your stay in Europe is covered by your visa.

  • Get in contact with your German local IAESTE committee.
