EU nationals do not require a visa to enter the Federal Republic of Germany. Generally speaking, all other foreigners require a visa for stays in Germany. A visa is not required for semi-annual visits of up to three months for nationals of those countries for which the European Community has abolished the visa requirement.
Nationals being in need for Visa to enter Germany are required to contact the respective German embassy or consular section being responsible for their country. A list of those countries can be found on the website of the German Foreign Office under:
Visas are issued by the mission responsible for the area in which the applicant has his/her ordinary residence or domicile.
The Organisers will send out written confirmation of entries only if:
After the reception of the confirmation letter the National Federation should contact the respective German embassy or consular section being responsible for the country immediately.
The Organizers would like to underline that Visa procedures are the responsibility of the applying person/s. In any case but in particular in the case of late registration or failing respective Visa and immigration procedures the Organizers are not responsible for the participant’s visas. The Organizers however will be glad to assist when questions on Visa procedures should apply.
The Organizers would also like to stress strongly that no visas will be issued at the German passport control and all documentation has to be prepared beforehand. In no case German authorities will grant entry to Germany without proper papers.
The Organizers refuse any liability for problems with Visa. The final decision always rests with the public authorities.
