Visa Support

If you are travelling to our fair from a country whose citizens require a visa for Germany, you will need an official letter from Koelnmesse.

In order for us to formulate this letter as precisely as possible, you must provide us with various details.

Please complete all of the points listed below. We will then send you the official letter by email and will also forward a copy to the nearest German consulate in your country.

Please inquire about the entry requirements applying to you (e. g. visa requirement) sufficiently in advance before you come to the event.
Please carry out the necessary formalities yourself. Koelnmesse will accept no responsibility if you do not receive a visa or do not receive it on time, or if you are unable to travel to the event due to other reasons.

We will get in touch with you as soon as possible within two days from Monday to Friday (Except Saturday/Sunday and on holidays)
