Visa and insurance

If you require a visa for entering Germany, this will have to be obtained prior to your arrival. You can apply for a visa at the German Embassy in your home country – we kindly advise that you apply as soon as you know your travel dates. Visit the German Foreign Office website for more details.

Upon request, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety will provide an official invitation letter to support your application. The organizers of the meeting are unable to cover or reimburse visa fees and associated costs.

Please also note that some transfer airports (e.g. London) require a transit visa. You may also be required to show proof of valid travel insurance when entering Germany.
