The required income of the sponsor

Attention! The required minimum monthly net income can be increased every year. Please contact the website of Immigration Office for the current amounts. 

As a general rule, the sponsor must have a monthly net income of €1661,44 for his / her personal expenses. Furthermore, the sponsor must also have a monthly net income of € 679 for the student that he/she wants to sponsor. The sponsor must also have a monthly net income of € 150 per person at charge * of the sponsor (for example, partner, children or other family members).

The basic calculation looks like this:
1661,44€         personal costs for the sponsor
+ 679,00€         costs for the student
+ 150,00€         costs per person at charge of the sponsor *

The following example shows the calculation of the monthly net income that a married person (whose partner has no income of his own) must have:

1661,44€         personal costs for the sponsor
+ 679,00€         costs for the student
+ 150,00€         costs per person at charge of the sponsor *
--------------- +
2.490,44€         the net income required by the sponsor
