Information on Visa Applications
Information for visitors from countries requiring a visa.
The Representatives of Messe Frankfurt will provide you with support in case of Visa Applications. As a rule, missions require between two and ten working days to decide on an application for a short stay visa. During the peak travel season there may be a waiting period for making an application to a German mission. Persons requiring a visa to enter Germany should therefore submit their requests in time.
As a rule, applicants must submit visa applications, together with all necessary documents, in person at the German mission responsible for their place of residence. In order to avoid time-consuming requests for additional information or documentation, applicants should contact the respective mission well in advance of their departure date to enquire about any special local requirements pertaining to visa formalities.
Letters of invitation for visitors from countries requiring a visa will be issued directly by the foreign representatives of Messe Frankfurt (please find a list of countries below).
For visitors, the issuance of an invitation letter is conditional on the purchase of a ticket for the corresponding trade fair.
