Visa Information:

To visit Germany, many world nationals may need a visa. Since 1995 when Germany, as an EU Member State, also became a member state of the Schengen Area, travellers can enter Germany with a Schengen Visa.

What is Schengen?

The passport-free area of the EU known as Schengen includes the majority of the nations in Europe. The world's largest free travel zone is there.

What is a Schengen Visa?

A Schengen visa is a short-stay visa that enables travelers to enter any nation that is a part of the Schengen Area and remain there for up to 90 days for either leisure or business.

The most prevalent visa for Europe is the Schengen visa. It allows the holder to leave the Schengen region and enter it freely from any of the Schengen member nations. The Schengen Area does not have border controls.

However, you must apply for a national visa of that European nation rather than a Schengen Visa if you intend to study, work, or reside in one of the Schengen countries for a period of time longer than 90 days.

Who Needs a Visa to Enter Europe?

Prior to traveling to Europe, all citizens of third countries that have not yet reached a visa liberalization agreement with Schengen member states are required to obtain a visa.

If you intend to visit one of the Schengen member countries, you should determine if you require a Schengen visa.
