Working Holiday Visa

Visa for working holidays in Germany
Holiday employment for foreign students
Requirements
Student status at a foreign university or technical college.
Every year many foreign students travel to Germany during their semester break to earn extra money while also learning German and exploring a foreign country and culture. From hospitality to agriculture, the holiday season opens up plenty of opportunities. Bars and restaurants, for example, seek additional staff to meet the increased demand of guests and tourists. One could also be working as a housekeeper in a hotel or, if hospitality is not preferred, help out in agriculture. With this range of opportunities, one can choose to stay in an exciting city, a coastal area or the idyllic countryside.
The total duration of stay will not exceed 90 days within a period of 12 months and will be during semester breaks.
Valid health insurance for the entire duration of stay in Germany.
Basic knowledge of the German language and perhaps relevant work experience.
