Help Beginning a Freelance or Artist Visa (Berlin)


Hello out there,

My name is Emily, I am a fellow American who has fallen in love with a German. We have been going back and forth for about 3 years now and we are finally ready to stop the distance. I have been looking into getting either an Artist or Freelance visa, however, it doesn't seem like I can file that in the United States. I would love to know from some Expats out there on how they entered a similar journey, the paper work that needed to be collected, what I need in order to enter Germany for 3 months and where the filing takes place?

I have a writing and print journalism degree from Emerson College, and over the past couple of years I have been doing writing projects on the side while pursuing a full-time job in the wine industry. Any Expat writers in Germany who are succeeding, I would love to hear from you as well.

Any advice that any of you can give me will be more than appreciated.

Thank you,
