Hotel and Travel

Travel: Passport and Visa

Germany is a party to the Schengen Agreement, therefore EU nationals do not require a visa to enter. A passport valid for six months beyond the period of travel is required. A visa is not required for U.S., British, Australian, and Canadian travelers for stays of up to 90 days. Other nationalities should check here or nearest Consulate Office for visa requirements.

If you require assistance with a visa letter, we suggest that you book your hotel room and the confirmation letter from the hotel may be sufficient documentation for your needs. INTA will not provide visa letters for this event, but you may contact for more information.
