Question Description
I am From Karachi, Pakistan. I applied for a German visa a month ago. But I still have not heard from them about the outcome. I did not submit the proof of proficiency in German language. However, I verbally told them in the interview that I had enrolled myself at a German language course (btw my course in Germany will be taught in English and I provided my TOEFL report with the application). Anyway, I wanted to ask if my visa may get rejected on basis of not providing the German proficiency certificate.

If your university’s class is lectured in English, you do not need to provide the German language proficiency certificate. You have mentioned that your course will be taught in English, so you have to submit the documents that support you will be taught in English language. Generally, letter of acceptance from the university contains the information about the language in which the student will be taught. However, other separate documents may be provided along with letter of acceptance. If you have submitted such documents along with your TOEFL score, then there shouldn’t be any confusion in embassy.

Generally, the student visa decision is made within a week of the submission of the application. However, delays may occur on decision due to various factors. But in your case, I guess that the language proficiency had not played any role on delays of your visa approval decision.
