Visa for Germany and the Schengen States


The Consulate General would like to point out, that US citizens do not require a visa to enter Germany. Their application for a residence permit can be submitted directly at the local aliens' authority (Ausländerbehörde) within 90 days after entering Germany. The Consulate General strongly recommends using this option. However, please be advised that US citizens are only allowed to perform employment after a visa or residence permit have been issued.


Information on our mail-in service (Schengen visas only!) can be found on our website.


Please print out that e-mail and bring it to your appointment.

Please make sure that e-mails sent by or do not go into your junk mail folder.
