India's relations with Germany have seen a tremendous boost over the past years. The two countries are important partners on the international stage. Both countries join forces in their commitment to tackle the challenges of our globalised world, like climate change, reforming of the global finance system or combatting international terrorism.
Our political leaders meet on a regular basis in bilateral and multilateral frameworks. However, this strategic partnership reaches far beyond government contacts.
It is the people-to-people relations in business, science, culture, and the contacts between our societies, that give the Indo-German relations their stability.
Indian nationals who intend to travel to Germany either on a short term basis with a maximum stay of 90 days per 6 months (e.g. business purposes, tourist purposes, visiting purposes, transiting) or intend to work or settle in Germany permanently do require a valid visa before entering Germany.
