Fespa Global Print Expo

Show Dates

31 May – 3 June 2022



I need a visa - what do I need to do?

In July 2013 a decree was issued by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs that an invitation letter by the trade show organizer is as a rule no longer needed when applying for visa in order to attend a trade show in Germany. All Visa Centers as well as German Embassies and Consulates were informed about this decree (https://www.auma.de/en/exhibit/legal-matters/trade-fair-visa). Moreover visa fees are waived for exhibitors at German trade fairs (see also https://www.germany-visa.org/ and https://www.studying-in-germany.org/german-student-visa/). Please refer in your visa application to this. If an embassy insists on a letter of invitation, please fill in this form and send it to: marketing@fespa.com

Additional information regarding the visa application procedure, requirements for the issue and application forms in different languages are available at the website "visa regulations" of the German Foreign Office as well as at the respective websites of the embassies and consulates general. Persons requiring a visa to enter Germany should submit their applications in good time prior to the respective trade show.

We are noticed that appointments for some of the Germany Embassies are fully booked until June. If you need to apply for a visa to enter Germany, please check the appointment availability before registration.

A visa application is possible up to three months before entry.

Exhibitors are being targeted by companies claiming to be, or work with, the event organisers. They use existing event branding and may appear genuine.  In the past this has included directories and hotel bookings but companies can also claim they can sell visitor data. All exhibitors should check the small print before signing anything relating to FESPA’s exhibitions and events.  In case of doubt, please contact info@fespa.com.  Please note, AVANTEL Hotel Reservation GmbH is the only official accommodation agency for FESPA Global Print Expo & European Sign Expo 2022.  Other agencies that contact you may be a scam.
