I'm an American artist gearing up to make an attempt to move to Berlin and obtain an artist/self employed visa in January of 2017. I've been looking up information on the internet but can't seem to get any updated info. It seems they're making it a lot harder to obtain one nowadays in comparison to 2010-2012. If anyone can give me an updated in depth list of what I have to get done to obtain my visa, that would be awesome. I know it's asking for a lot.
