Most EU nationals only need their ID or passport to visit, stay and work in Germany. Non-EU citizens visiting Germany must be holding a valid passport – good for at least four months after they plan to leave Germany.

If you are a resident of one of the following countries, you are not required a visa if entering Germany as tourists for less than 90 days in a six-month period:

Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, France, Great Britain, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan,, Korea (Republic of Korea), Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Hungary, Uruguay, USA, Venezuela.

Nationals from all other countries must apply for a Schengen Visa at their German embassy or consulate. These visas are good for up to 90 days.

All tourists combining their visit to Germany with other destinations in Europe are advised to get familiar with visa regulation in those other countries as well.

If planning to stay in Germany for over 90 days -usually students on scholarships or businesspeople-, all non-EU citizens must apply for a visa.

Visa applications are usually processed in 2 to 10 days, but visitors are advised to start the process as early as possible.
