For how long is the visa valid?

A national visa is usually issued with a validity of 90 days (family reunification/employment) or 180 days (all other cases) for the stated purpose of stay and entitles you to enter the country via the Schengen countries. After your entry in Germany Educaro supports you to apply for a further residence title at the responsible foreigners authority. The duration of validity is determined by the local immigration office and usually covers the time until recognition - if not, Educaro will of course support you with another application. After your recognition, you can usually apply for a long-term residence title.
