Non-EU participants may require a visa to enter Germany. A list of countries where visas are required can be viewed on the Federal Foreign Office website: Overview of visa requirements/exemptions for entry into the Federal Republic of Germany.
If you need a visa, please check the German embassy or consulate in your local country. A list of German Missions can be found on the Federal Foreign Office website: Bilateral relations and German missions.
We strongly encourage participants to start the visa application process as soon as possible to avoid delays. It is the sole responsibility of the participant to obtain a visa. The organizers cannot provide financial support.
We can provide invitation letters for the purpose of applying for a visa. To obtain a letter, please email Ms. Andrea Steuer with a minimum of your institute, country of the institute, and job title, in order for a personalized letter to be issued.
