Visa Information

If you need a visa to enter Germany, you should apply well in advance, as it often takes several weeks for the German embassy or consulate to process visa applications. Please check the website of the German Federal Foreign Office to find out if you require a visa to enter Germany.

As a rule, visa applicants must appear in person at the embassy or consulate responsible for their place of residence to submit their application, supported by all necessary documents.

Visa application forms can be obtained from the embassy or consulate free of charge (in the local language). Please consult your local German embassy or consulate for more information.

Please contact to request an invitation letter from ISC 2017, which may be necessary for your visa application. NOTE: you must be registered to receive an invitation letter.
