Visa Update:

Visas can currently only be issued if the intended entry is absolutely necessary. The exceptional cases permitted entry into Germany are explained in both English and German on the website of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, for Building and Home Affairs under “Coronavirus: Questions and Answers” and there under “Travel restrictions / border controls”: https://www.bmi.bund.de/SharedDocs/faqs/EN/topics/civil-protection/coronavirus/coronavirus-faqs.html

With additional important notes under:

Please choose how long you are planning to stay. 

Short stay (maximum of 90 days, e.g. for a holiday or business trip)

Long stay (more than 90 days, e.g. to attend university, work or join a family member in Germany)
