German Visit Visa

Germany is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. It hosts the most popular trade shows. It is also home to many national parks, theme parks, music festivals, spas, and historical sites, among others. It is also ranked as one of the safest countries for tourists.     


If you are planning to visit Europe’s second-largest nation, know the visa requirements beforehand. Firstly, you need to apply for a short-term visa of the country, which would be the Schengen visa. This is a short-term visa that is valid for 90 days. For the uninitiated, this special visa is valid in all 26 European Union (EU) nations that are part of the Schengen Area. Therefore, a Schengen visa allows you to visit and stay in Germany in addition to the other 26 countries that are members of it.
