Whether you require a visa for Germany depends on your home country and how long you wish to stay.

Citizens of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Community (EEC) or Switzerland do not require a visa to enter the Federal Republic of Germany.

If you are from a country outside the EU, you might need to apply for a visa. You can get information about visa requirements from the German embassy or consulate in your home country. If you need one, be sure to apply for it in your country of residence well ahead of time. The German foreign representations (embassies or general consulates) are responsible for the process.

A list of the German foreign representations’ addresses is posted on the Federal Foreign Office website. You can also find out there which documents you need for the application process.
