Stadt Münster: Ausländerbehörde im Rechts- und Ausländeramt - Travel and visits


Travel and visits

Are you planning a short-term stay in Germany? Or would you like to discover Germany as a tourist or visit relatives? If so, please contact your local German representative office, which will tell you which documentation you require in order to be issued with a visa.

In the event that you have received the visa and have questions regarding its validity during your stay in Germany, then please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are happy to help you!

We are also more than happy to respond to questions regarding letters of intent (invitations to visit) or pupil traveller lists.

The information on these pages is intended to provide you with an initial overview. However, it goes without saying that this cannot replace a personal appointment or queries by telephone in individual cases.
