Can I obtain a visa even without a formal obligation (“Verpflichtungserklärung”) or with a formal obligation of my sponsor?


You can receive a visa even without a formal obligation. For this you must submit proof that you are able to finance your travel yourself. Evidence for this can for example be submitted in the form of:

  • credit cards (and accounts for the last 6 months) or
  • bank statements of the last 6 months

Please view our information leaflets regarding this matter.
In addition to this, you must cover expenses for the travel health insurance yourself.
