After my visa interview and submission of my visa application documents with the German Embassy, I was called exactly a week later to go get my passport. ...#i submitted my documents as was requested. I applied for a students' visa. I was asked to add some additional named documents. I submitted the documents in the 6th day. I was called on the following day(seventh day) to go for my passport. That is it.

Does that mean my student visa application has been denied?

  • Hi and welcome. I don't think we can answer this without speculating. Your best bet is to actually go pick up the passport and see for yourself what the status of your application is. – JoErNanO Mar 14 '17 at 14:02
  • This is post-submission anxiety. Nothing to be done about it. – Gayot Fow Mar 15 '17 at 4:05
  • It means they are returning your passport. – Michael Hampton Mar 15 '17 at 4:36

It means they have reached a decision and you will find out what it is when you pick up your passport. Nothing more, nothing less.

  • A decision in just one week?? – Aroma Mar 14 '17 at 14:02

    @Aroma: Why not? The processing delay is not taken up by people thinking deep thoughts about the application -- mostly just by the papers sitting around in a queue until a qualified decisionmaker has time to take at look at them. – hmakholm left over Monica Mar 14 '17 at 14:13
