Information regarding Training / Internship Visa (for more than three months)

All Nepali nationals who intend to do a training or an internship in the Federal Republic of Germany require a visa prior to their departure.


Please note that visa applicants for a Training / Internship Visa have to take an online appointment prior to submitting their application.

Admission to the Visa Section of the German Embassy will only be granted at the time of the scheduled appointment. Being late will consequently result in having you to book a new appointment.

The visa application must be supported by all the necessary documents as only applications with complete documentation can be accepted.Simultaneous applications for a Schengen visa and a visa application for training or internship cannot be processed.


Visa fees are payable in Nepali Rupees. The fees are fixed in Euro; therefore, the equivalent in Nepali currency may vary according to the exchange rate. The complete fee has to be paid upon application and will not be refunded in case the visa application is rejected.
