1.6.- Do I need a VISA in order to travel and stay in Germany? In such case will the IRI help me with the administrative procedure?
Depending on your country of origin, VISA requirements for persons who want to travel and stay in Germany can generally be found here (http://www.auswaertiges-amt.de/EN/EinreiseUndAufenthalt/Visabestimmungen_node.html)The specific preconditions depend on the relations of each country with the Federal Republic of Germany. In order to create a precise view you have to address the German Embassy in your own country, which is the only responsible authority to advise you in detail. The IRI can help you obtain a VISA, by issuing you a letter of invitation. For this purpose we will ask you for your full name, address, date of birth, place of birth and passport number.
