Visa service for exhibitors


Our visa service for exhibitors from non-EU countries

For residents of all countries where a visa is required to enter the Federal Republic of Germany, we set up our own visa service. Details are available here.

Generally speaking, residents of countries in the EU do not require a visa to enter the Federal Republic of Germany.

An up-to-date list of all countries that do and do not require a visa is available from the German Foreign Office:

Specific visa requirements for your country can be found on the websites of the German Missions abroad (countries A to Z).

In a directive transmitted per e-mail in July 2013, the German Foreign Office has informed the German Embassy and Consulate Visa Sections all over the world that in general, an official invitation letter from the trade fair organizer is no longer required when applying for a trade fair visa (see website AUMA). Moreover, visa fees are waived for exhibitors at German trade fairs (see: website of the Federal Foreign Office).

When applying for your visa, simply refer to this information. In case the visa section responsible for issuing your visa should nonetheless request that an official invitation letter be presented, please send an e-mail to: visaservice@messe-muenchen.de

Additional information about visa procedures, requirements for the issue of visas, visa fees and application forms are available in different languages on the webpage "Visa requirements" of the Foreign Office, as well as the respective websites of the embassies and consulates.

To ensure you obtain your visa before the trade fair starts, we recommend that you submit your visa application in due time. Applications can be made as early as three months before the time of entry.

If you have further questions about applying for your visa, please contact the Messe München foreign representative in your country. Or you can contact our visa service (e-mail: visaservice@messe-muenchen.de) directly.
