Hey everybody!

My boyfriend (a "kiwi") is going to come to Germany with the whv. But we can´t find anywhere details for the valid of the visa. Will it be only valid for one year as soon as he got it or will it be valid for one year after he got here (to Germany)?

Could anybody help to clear my confusion, please?

Thanks a lot...

Its much the same as the Australian and NZ visas. Its valid for 12 months from the time of first entry into Germany; however, you must arrive into Germany no later than 3-months after the visa is granted. The visas are applied for from your local German Consulate.

Thank you very much! That´s the first concrete answer I got.
