General information on visas for congress attendees
EU nationals, in general, do not require a visa, however most other non-German participants do.

Those who need a visa must satisfy the visa requirements of the local German Embassy/Consulate including:
- a confirmed travel booking, including flight, train and/or bus bookings, hotel reservation
- proof of health insurance
- confirmation of the scientific society that you are accepted as a participant of the conference (chair/speaker/participant) – this means confirmed presentation slot and/or confirmed online ticket registration
- visa invitation letter
