Visa service for exhibitors


Our visa service for exhibitors from non-EU countries

We have set up our own visa service for residents of all countries where a visa is required to enter the Federal Republic of Germany.

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:

Required documents

If you are an exhibitor who requires a visa, to apply for your visa, you will need the following documents in addition to those required by the relevant embassy or consulate:

  • confirmation of your travel bookings (hotel, airline, bus or railway reservation) 
  • verification of health insurance
  • your stand invoice and exhibitor passes.
Important informations:

In a directive transmitted per e-mail in July 2013, the German Foreign Office has informed the German Embassy and Consulate Visa Sections all over the world that in general, an official invitation letter from the trade fair organizer is no longer required when applying for a trade fair visa (see website AUMA). Moreover, visa fees are waived for exhibitors at German trade fairs (see website of the Federal Foreign Office.

When applying for your visa, simply refer to this information. In case the visa section responsible for issuing your visa should nonetheless request that an official invitation letter be presented, please send an e-mail to: visaservice@messe-muenchen.de

Additional information about visa procedures, requirements for the issue of visas, visa fees and application forms are available in different languages on the webpage "Visa requirements" of the Foreign Office, as well as the respective websites of the embassies and consulates.

To ensure you obtain your visa before the trade fair starts, we recommend that you submit your visa application in due time.

Applications can be made as early as three months before the time of entry.

If you have further questions about applying for your visa, please contact the Messe München foreign representative in your country. Or you can contact our visa service (e-mail: visaservice@messe-muenchen.de) directly.
