Please consider to get a passport in advance or ensure that obtaining a passport and - if required - a Visa can be done in time within the time between invitation and interview symposium. Please inspect the homepage of the German embassy in your country. It is your responsibility to have the documents required for travel to Germany in time for the interview symposium. We will offer you advice and help to arrange appointments for Visa applications once you are invited.
