Passport and visa

A valid passport is required for non-EU citizens for entry into GERMANY and the European Union. An identity card is sufficient for citizens of EU Member States. Please consult your local Consulate according to your nationality for specific details.

Advance travel planning and early visa application are important, since entry to Germany with a visa is subject to more intense scrutiny than was previously the case. We highly recommend that foreign participants contact their local embassy to find out what travel documents they will need to visit Germany.

If you do need a visa to attend the conference, please apply for one as soon as possible!

All participants of CCC-2018 requiring an invitation letter for visa application purposes should request this as an option during the online registration.

Should your visa application be declined, you can send a request for a full refund of the registration fees to CCC2018@dlr.de before April 3, 2018. A scanned copy of the rejection letter for a visa should be attached to your request for a refund. For requests after April 3, 2018, the cancellation policy will apply.
