Visa requirements

All non-German nationals entering Germany must provide valid travel documentation. Delegates who hold neither an EU passport nor a Schengen visa should check as soon as possible the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs website to see if they require a visa to enter Germany, as visa applications can take as long as several months during high season as well as meet temporarily limitations.

Visa regulations depend on your nationality and your country of origin. For the most updated information regarding visa requirements, we suggest you contact your local german consulate or visa counter for full and official instruction on the specific visa regulation and application procedures that apply to you.

If a visa is required, delegates should apply to the German Diplomatic and Consular Representations in their country of residence with the documents outlined on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website.  

An invitation letter to the Congress may be downloaded online from your registration account on this website after the registration fee is fully paid.

If additional support for your VISA application is needed, the Conference Secretariat will be at your disposal for further assistance.

Presentation of the requested documentation does NOT guarantee that the VISA will be granted. Please note that ESH and the Secretariat will not be able to contact or intervene with any Embassy or Consulate office on behalf of a registrant. The invitation letter does NOT financially or legally obligate ESH nor AIM in any way. All expenses incurred in relation to the event and to obtaining a VISA are the sole responsibility of the registrant. ESH and AIM do NOT accept any responsibility for registration, travel, accommodation and/or other costs incurred due to the rejection of a registrant’s visa application.
