I am applying for German job seeker visa at New York center on 1st week of December and I am planning to travel overseas towards the end of December. I need help to know what is the processing time for job seeker visa and how much time they will take for stamping.
From the Visa : Frequently Asked Questions - Federal Foreign Office the general answer is:
How long will I have to wait for my visa?
The processing time for visa applications (short stay) takes up to 15 days.
If long-term residence permits or visa for employment in Germany are applied for, the processing time will be up to several months.
As a general rule, visas where consultation with the Aliens' Authority (Ausländerbehörde) are needed take longer.
- as it is for the student visa in the first site
- or Jobseeker (the pdf form you will need to fill out) in the second
assume the time needed will be longer (1 to 3 months).
