Letter of Invitation
The Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany announces:
Concerning visa formalities we recommend you to contact the German embassy or consulates in your country and/or your travel agent.
The visa departments of the German embassies and consulates around the world have been informed in an order circulated by e-mail on 24 July 2013, that applicants requesting trade fair visa will no longer require an invitation letter from the respective trade fair company.
When applying for a visa, exhibitors will be requested to submit confirmation of their admission to an event by the relevant trade fair company. In such cases a visa will be issued free of charge. Should an exhibitor not be in possession of said confirmation then he must give an alternative and plausible explanation for his travel request. In such cases, and as a rule, visas cannot be issued free of charge.
