It is the sole responsibility of the 2018 WVC conference delegates to take care of their visa requirements. Delegates who require an entry visa must allow sufficient time for the application procedure. Delegates should contact the nearest German embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications. Please check passport and visa requirements in due time before your departure. Visas can take a while to be processed, so leave enough time before departure to apply.

Note: German embassies and consulates-general are independent decision-making agencies for visas, sometimes after specific checks have been made with other Schengen countries. The 2018 WVC organizing secretariat cannot intervene on your behalf in case of a rejection or to speed up the procedure.
