Get in Touch

Germany is a wonderful tourism destination in Western Europe that attracts tourists from around the world each year. Germany has been among the most popular tourist destinations in the world, thanks to its rich history, magnificent castles, and picturesque landscapes. Furthermore, depending on your country of origin, specific procedures must be followed to attain permission to enter and travel to Deutschland. If you want to visit Germany as a tourist or guest for a relatively short period, you'll need a German short-stay visa, commonly known as a tourist or visiting visa.

Visa Details

You will need to secure a 90-day short-term visa to visit Germany. The Schengen visa is another name for this short-term visa. All European countries that have signed the Schengen agreement accept the Schengen visa. Germany is listed as a member of the Schengen Agreement. You can visit and stay in Germany and the other 26 Schengen countries with a Schengen visa. The visa is used by a significant number of people to commute to Germany. If you want to visit Germany for holidays abroad, exploring, sightseeing or something similar, you ought to apply for this visa. We can help you organize your papers and application properly, increasing your chances of getting a visa.

When should I apply?

The workload of the application centre has a significant impact on the processing time for a German tourist/visitor visa. The average wait period for a Schengen visitor/tourist visa is two weeks around the world, but one can never be too sure, which is why it is critical to apply as soon as possible. In some cases, the German tourist/visitor visa can be obtained in 30 days; but, depending on the circumstances, it can take up to 60 calendar days. As previously said, it is greatly dependent on the workload. Therefore it is recommended that you submit your application as soon as possible. Until recently, you could apply three months in advance of your trip. However, under the new Schengen visa rules, you can now apply for a visa up to six months before your trip.

Stay Duration

The Schengen visa for a short visit is usually valid for a maximum of 90 days within six months. Your visa's validity, on the other hand, is determined by the embassy that granted it. The length of time you're permitted to stay in the Schengen area is specified on the visa sticker affixed to your passport.

German Tourist/Visitor Visa Fees

Adults must pay €80 (INR 6796.28) for a German tourist/visitor visa. Children from 6 to 12 must pay a fee of €40(INR 3398.14). Nationals of countries with which the EU has visa-facilitation agreements will be charged €35(INR 2973.37). Moreover, The Schengen visa price is liable to change at any time, and your money will not be refunded if your visa application is denied. Some categories, however, are excluded from paying the visa cost or are required to pay a minimal fee.
