Visa service for exhibitors


Our visa service for exhibitors from non-EU countries

Citizens from a number of countries require a visa to enter Germany. We would be pleased to assist you with a visa invitation letter to support your visa application.

Generally speaking, residents of countries in the EU do not require a visa to enter the Federal Republic of Germany. For residents of several other countries, on the other hand, a visa is required to enter Germany.

An up-to-date list of all countries that do and do not require a visa is available from the German Federal Foreign Office:

Specific visa requirements for your country can be found on the websites of the German Missions abroad (countries A to Z).
