For residents of all countries where a visa is required to enter the Federal Republic of Germany, we set up our own visa service. Details are available here.
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.
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.
An up-to-date list of all countries that do and do not require a visa is available from the German Foreign Office. Specific visa requirements for your country can be found on the websites of the German Missions abroad.
