Please indicate in your registration whether you need a visa to enter Germany or not. We will contact each person who needs visa support after registration since the invoices are not sent automatically. Coming from a visa obligatory country, you have to pay your invoice within 4 weeks.
After paying the stated amount, you will receive a Finance Statement which is necessary for the visa application. Please send this document back to us as soon as possible for receiving the Letter of Invitation which is required for your visa application.
For your visa application contact the German embassy or Consulate in your country in good time. Ask what documents are required for the application and consider your validity of your passport which has to be at least 3 months at the time of your journey as a rule. You should also ask for an early appointment to hand in your visa application to the embassy, and inquire about the time required to process it. Sometimes this takes a very long time! Your appointment should be latest between beginning of March and beginning of April 2019!
We are willing to assist you with your visa application with a certificate confirming your registration with the Kirchentag. You can present this document to the German consular authorities responsible for you. If you require such a certificate please indicate this on applying. The certificate is no guarantee that you will obtain a visa since it is up to the German consulate to decide – we do not have influence on the decision made by the consulate.
Please pay attention: Registration for international visitors has already started. Deadline for visa application support is 22 February 2019.
For the time of your stay in Germany you will need a health insurance that covers Germany. The Kirchentag offers to insure those who need a visa for the time of the Kirchentag, from Tuesday 18 June to Sunday 23 June 2019. Please mention in your registration if you need the health insurance. It is possible to prolong the insurance on payment of a small fee.
