You have the opportunity to undergo vocational training in Germany. Such vocational training normally lasts two or three years. You can apply for a visa for this period of time at the German mission in your country. To be granted a visa, you have to meet two criteria:

  • You have found a vocational training place with a German company.
  • The German Federal Employment Agency has approved your vocational training because there are no German candidates or candidates from a privileged country (such as an EU country) for the respective position. Candidates holding a school-leaving certificate from a German school abroad are exempt from this provision.
