The requirements for a student visa include the enrollment notice of the university, your passport, application form and residence permit in Germany as you will apply there. They may ask for more requirements during the process. Also, apply through the closest China Visa Application Centers to you instead of China embassy.
Answered by Kitosi Ronald | Mar. 21, 2023 02:59

I don't have a residence permit I just have a long stay visa in Germany for 6 months because I'm here on a short course of 5 months and am supposed to leave immediately of after the short course completed which will end in July.
