In principle, the extension of a Schengen visa is not possible. 

An exception is only possible

  • In case of force majeure or
  • humanitarian reasons and
  • for serious personal reasons.

The holder of the visa must prove, by submitting suitable documents, that it is not possible to leave Germany within the validity period of the Schengen-Visa for one of the above-mentioned reasons.

In addition, a sufficient health insurance and the securing of livelihood without use of public funds (e.g. social assistance) have to be proven.
