I came for language course to prepare for study in October 2020. I got schengen visa. I can not travel back home because of  corona travel restrictions . Can I apply for visa switch to student application visa? I have not yet got any admission yet because I am not done with my language course and can't apply for student visa. I am at B1. Can I pay for further tuition in language course and apply for student application visa?  Second question. My funds are in my home country. Can I apply for blocked account in Germany on tourist visa? My visa expired but I understand I have up to June 30th. Third question. Is there someone who can help me with free counseling in Heidelberg? I have other personal questions I need to ask.

Hello Siku,

thank you for reaching out the wefugees community.

At first you have to contact the foreign office (Ausländerbehörde) to extend your visa. In the time of coronacrisis this is not the problem.

For a student visa you need minimum Level B 2. Also necessary is an annual budget of 10236 € on a blocked account. Here are more informations; https://www.auswaertiges-amt.de/en/sperrkonto/388600

For free acounselling please contact my colleagues in Heidelberg. You can find the addresses here:
