I am Non EU IT/Software professional.
I got admitted to Masters Program in A German University.
I then applied to Consulate General in Mumbai for the student visa. I was planning to join university winter semester in 2021.
While the application is still being processed, I got an offer from a startup in Berlin. (pays me 68k Euros yearly). The contract starts from August.
Now, if I get the student visa, can I come to Germany early and apply for blue-card/work visa from Berlin without enrolling into university? Or Should I reapply to my local german consulate for a work visa even after getting a student visa?
(I could not find any satisfactory answer from the internet because every other answer conflicts with the previous.)
If I don't get a student visa, I have to reapply for work visa, from Mumbai.
I don't want to create ill intention in the eyes of Hon. German consulate in Mumbai or Germany.
