Student with no visa: Will I be denied re-entry into Germany???

Jump to last reply

I know already what I have done wrong: It is April and I've been studying on exchange in Germany since September, too lazy to get a "residence permit" from my city hall. I didn't know at the time the significance of this permit but I knew I was just another student procrastinating it. Ok. I got sick recently and had to fly home to the USA, via a flight out of Paris--I was stamped here but not stopped.

I will fly into the Frankfurt airport on Sunday. Realizing the gravity of the situation and being told the importance of a visa I have already been to my embassy and appealed for a rushed visa--unfortunately it will probably take about 3 weeks, but I can't wait that long to return to the Schengen area. Classes start Tuesday.

Along with me on my flight back to Germany I will bring a note stating a planned appointment to get the visa the next day with the city hall, a hospital note, a receipt of my visa application, as well as the numbers of German advisors who could come in to the airport and speak for me.

So will I be barred from entering? Sent immediately back on a flight to the USA? Fined hundreds of euros and banned from entering Schengen for a few years? If these are likely events in the strict border control of Germany, even if I cry and beg and make a fuss, then would it be better to try to enter from a less-strict country, like say, Italy or Spain or France? Should I wait the 3-4 weeks until I get the visa?

What do you all think???! Very nervous. Just want to get back into Germany to finish school. It would be devestating to me to be sent back. Any advice would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you.
