International Visitors

VISA

Exhibitors and visitors not part of the EU need to ensure that they acquire a travel visa to visit the show before traveling. We encourage you to contact the Consular Section of the Embassy or Consulate near your location to determine how to apply, and the likely time required for that process of visa issuance to be accomplished. Our organization has no influence over the issue of a visa. We suggest that you make the application with sufficient advance time prior to the event to avoid disappointment. A list of consular offices is available online. When you travel to Germany, we suggest that upon entry you carry a copy of your planned itinerary including not only your visit to our trade event, but including any follow-on business or vacation plans you have. The Immigration and Naturalization Officer at your port of entry will determine the approved duration of your visit. It is therefore in your interest to let the officer know of your plan to seek approval for the full duration of your planned visit in Germany.

Our association looks forward to your attendance of our show. If you should require any information regarding the event or a Letter of Invitation, please do not hesitate to contact our staff at +49 69 3085 5045 or linda.naumann@comexposium.com.

AN IMPORTANT TIP

Do not, under any circumstances, visit the area around the main train station in Frankfurt at night UNLESS you are traveling in a group or are a very brave individual. Due to a drug free policy in this district as well as the red light district being situated here, dangers are around every corner and you might see things you wish you had never seen. Caution is also advised during the daytime since there are a lot of organized beggar groups and drug addicts in the area.
