Visa Service for Students

Our Visa Service is available to all international students of HU Berlin. Through the Visa Service, you can both apply for and extend your residence permit and receive multilingual support and advice. This way, you can save yourself the trip to the Berlin Foreigners' Registration Office (Berliner Ausländerbehörde).

Doctoral students should contact the International Scholar Services (ISS).
