We, a united and determined group of Iranian students, demand immediate reforms to the German embassy's student visa processing in Iran. We are calling for expedited processing times, transparent communication regarding our applications, and concrete steps to ensure timely and fair responses. We refuse to be left in limbo, wasting valuable time, resources, and opportunities due to the embassy's inefficiency."
==============================================================================
"Wir, eine vereinte und entschlossene Gruppe iranischer Studenten, fordern sofortige Reformen im Visumsprozess für Studenten an der deutschen Botschaft im Iran. Wir fordern beschleunigte Bearbeitungszeiten, transparente Kommunikation über unsere Anträge und konkrete Schritte, um rechtzeitige und faire Antworten sicherzustellen. Wir weigern uns, im Ungewissen gelassen zu werden und wertvolle Zeit, Ressourcen und Chancen aufgrund der Ineffizienz der Botschaft zu verschwenden."

Reason

The current sluggish and opaque visa processing system at the German embassy in Iran is not just an inconvenience; it is a severe impediment to our academic and professional futures. Every day of delay results in lost admission chances at prestigious German universities, financial losses from non-refundable deposits , and relentless stress and uncertainty. We have complied with all requirements, yet we are met with silence and delay. We demand respect for our time, our aspirations, and our right to pursue education. The German embassy's negligence is stifling our potential and undermining Germany's reputation as a hub for international education."
============================================================================
"Das derzeit schleppende und undurchsichtige Visumverfahren an der deutschen Botschaft im Iran ist nicht nur eine Unannehmlichkeit; es ist ein schwerwiegendes Hindernis für unsere akademische und berufliche Zukunft. Jeder Tag der Verzögerung führt zu verpassten Zulassungsmöglichkeiten an renommierten deutschen Universitäten, finanziellen Verlusten durch nicht erstattungsfähige Anzahlungen und Lebenshaltungskosten sowie unermesslichem Stress und Unsicherheit. Wir haben alle Anforderungen erfüllt und werden dennoch mit Schweigen und Verzögerungen konfrontiert. Wir verlangen Respekt für unsere Zeit, unsere Bestrebungen und unser Recht auf Bildung. Die Vernachlässigung durch die deutsche Botschaft erstickt unser Potenzial und untergräbt Deutschlands Ruf als Zentrum für internationale Bildung."

Thank you for your support, Niyousha Morselvand from Tehran

Any small delay in my appointment with the embassy would jeopardize my chances to attend to my classes this September. I am required to be in germany before 23rd if September to enroll in-person. Any other option is NOT available for me.

No CONTRA argument yet.

Why people sign

I have been waiting for over a month for my appointment, and my Master class is scheduled to begin in October. Unfortunately, the delay in the visa process is causing significant concern.

Given the time-sensitive nature of my situation, I kindly request your assistance in expediting my visa appointment. My academic program starts soon, and I am eager to join my Master journey.

This is important to me because I have received an admition from a unviversity in germany and I need to receive a student visa maximum by the end of september 2024.

Thank you in advance,
Sara Taghipour

I have been accepted for the Winter 2024/25 semester for the Master's program, with my term starting on October 1st. I have already arranged accommodation and insurance. The timing in this process is extremely crucial, and delays in scheduling appointments for the Master's degree student visa process have become a significant source of concern and stress.

I kindly request that the necessary reviews be conducted.
