How to reach Tübingen

This page will have up to date info for delegates about travel to Germany please check back.

Visa Application

Everyone entering Germany must have a valid passport, or in the case of European Union Member States, a national identity card. Visas are required for some countries. Delegates should check with their local German representation.

Please note that it can take up to 3 weeks to process a visa application and early application is recommended. The conference organizers cannot accept any responsibility for visa applications. Where a delegate is unable to attend because of failure to obtain a visa on time, the normal cancellation policy for registration fee will apply. If you need to apply for a visa and need a formal invitation letter contact matthias.lang@uni-tuebingen.de

Please note the German Embassy will only accept a visa letter if it states that the delegate has registered for the congress and has paid their registration fee in full. The delegate will also need to request a letter from their respective hotel confirming the address that they will be staying at during the conference days. The German Embassy will usually only accept original letters from us so please allow enough time for us to post the visa letter to you.
