Visa Service
General information on Visas

EU nationals, in general, do not require a visa, however most other non-German participants do.  

Please follow this link to find out whether you will need a visa: German Federal Foreign Office

Those who need a visa must satisfy the visa requirements of their local German Embassy/Consulate including
  • a visa invitation letter  
  • a confirmed travel booking, including flight, train and/or bus bookings, hotel reservation and health insurance  
  • a confirmed order for their online registration as well as any special local requirements.
Therefore, all intended visitors should first register online for their entrance ticket. Online registration offers several cost and time saving benefits as described.
Those who need a visa should then request a visa invitation letter, which is available here and take it along with all travel documents to the German Mission (Embassy or Consulate) responsible for their present place of residence to apply for a visa.
