Visa information


Visa information

Singapore citizens in the possession of a valid passport do not need a visa to enter the countries of the Schengen Agreement, including Germany, as tourists or business travellers if they stay not longer than 90 days within 6 months. However, if you would like to work or complete a training programm during this time you will have to apply for a long-term visa (residence permit).

Other nationals might require a visa to enter Germany. To ascertain whether you need a visa please click on the link below ("List of states") to see the overview of countries. 

List of states

It is recommended that you take out a holiday health insurance policy for the duration of your stay, even if you are insured abroad under your statutory health insurance system.

Appointment for visa application

To apply for a visa you need to have an appointment (online booking).  Applicants without an appointment will not be entertained. There will not be any exceptions and respective requests via email or phone call will be of no avail! Please note that each applicant has to book the appointment individually, e.g. a family of four members has to book four appointments. Groups with more than 10 applicants should contact the visa section before booking an appointment.

In order to expedite the application process you should check regularly for cancelled appointments. To re-schedule your appointment to a cancelled time slot please cancel your previous appointment and re-register for the available time. Please make sure that you only book your time slot when you are certain that you can come. Booked but not kept appointments will lead to unnecessary delays for other applicants.

Collection of visa:
8:30am -  9:00am: Express visa collection
9:00am - 11:00am: Regular visa collection (Please allow some time as you will have to wait to be called to counter 2 to collect your visa)
