GERMANY Business Migration

If you are a non-EU citizen planning to visit Germany for business-related purposes such as attending meetings, conferences, or negotiations, you may need to apply for a Germany business visa.

Things you should know about business visa

1. Determine Visa Type: Identify the appropriate visa type based on the purpose and duration of your business visit. This could be a short-term business visa (Schengen visa) or a long-term national visa, depending on the length of your stay and specific requirements.

2. Application Process: The business visa application process typically involves the following steps:

   a. Gather Documents: Collect the necessary documents, which may include your passport, completed application form, invitation letter from the German company or host, travel itinerary, proof of accommodation, travel health insurance, financial means (bank statements), return flight tickets, and other supporting documents specific to your purpose of visit.

   b. Visa Application: Submit your visa application at the German embassy or consulate in your home country or country of residence. Schedule an appointment and ensure that you have all the required documents.

   c. Visa Interview: Attend the visa interview, where you may be asked about the purpose and duration of your business visit, financial stability, and ties to your home country.

   d. Visa Approval: If your application is approved, you will receive a business visa allowing you to travel to Germany for the specified purpose and duration mentioned in your application.

3. Duration and Validity: The duration of your business visa will depend on the information provided in your application and the discretion of the consular officer. Short-term business visas (Schengen visas) are typically issued for a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day period. Long-term national visas can be valid for a longer duration, depending on the specific circumstances and purpose of your visit.

4. Travel Health Insurance: It is mandatory to have travel health insurance that covers medical expenses and repatriation for the duration of your stay in Germany. The insurance coverage must meet specific requirements, such as a minimum coverage amount and validity.

5. Proof of Funds: You may need to provide proof of sufficient financial means to cover your expenses during your stay in Germany. This can include bank statements, credit card statements, or other evidence of financial stability.

6. Supporting Documents: In addition to the basic documents, you may need to provide specific supporting documents for your business visit, such as an invitation letter from the German company or host, proof of business relationships, conference registrations, or other relevant documentation related to your business purpose.

7. Previous Travel History: If you have a history of previous Schengen visa travel or business visits, it can positively impact your visa application. Make sure to provide any previous visa copies, entry and exit stamps, and evidence of compliance with previous visa conditions, if applicable.

8. Visa Fees: There is a non-refundable fee associated with the visa application process. The fee amount may vary depending on your nationality and the type of visa you are applying for.

It is important to check the official website of the German embassy or consulate in your country for detailed and up-to-date information on visa requirements and procedures. The specific requirements may vary based on your nationality and personal circumstances.
