What is a visa?

According to the Duden, a visa is a “certificate of approval for crossing the border”. The visa ends in the applicant's passport as a visa (or in the case of an e-visa with a pdf document) that documents the granted transit or entry and the stay in a country that requires a visa.

But for business travelers, a visa means much more than that. It is one of the key ingredients that determine whether the trip to the destination country will be a success.

Because: If errors are made in the application, it can well happen that the traveler is denied entry into the country in question. It is therefore particularly important to observe all applicable laws and to find out in detail before you travel whether a visa is required.

What are the minimum requirements for a visa?

Each country has different visa requirements. It is therefore essential for you to find out about the specific requirements of the country you wish to enter.

In any case, the following conditions should be met:

  • For visa-requiring countries, all travellers require a visa - even babies and children are no exception.
  • Before you travel, you should ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months beyond the intended end of your trip and that the passport has enough blank pages.
  • Depending on which country you are traveling to, you must be prepared for different processing times for your application. So plan enough time in advance.
