Visa requirements

Citizens of EU

EU citizens do not need a visa to travel to Germany. In most cases a personal ID card will suffice to enter the country.

Non-EU citizens

Germany is a member of the European Union. Citizens of some countries need an entry visa for Germany.
If you need a visa, make sure to apply for one well in advance. To check current visa requirements or find the nearest German Embassy or Consulate, see the information provided by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The local organizing committee can provide invitation letters upon request (request is also included in the workshop registration form). We recommend that all guests begin visa procedures at least three months prior to the workshop.
