Welcome to Germany!
In Germany, the "Land of Ideas", we place major emphasis on education, science, research and development. This makes Germany one of the most popular countries in which to study, as well as a site for state-of-the art research and patent development. With its high quality of life, good infrastructure and central location in Europe, Germany is one of the world's most attractive bases for business. Its beautiful urban and rural landscapes, combining age-old traditions and experimental modern culture, make a trip to Germany a unique experience.
Germany has something for everyone, so why not pay us a visit?
The Consulate General is urgently drawing your attention to the fact that contrary to some articles in local media Emirati nationals are still and until further notice required to apply for a visa, when they want to travel to Schengen countries *including **Germany*. If an Emirati national arrives at a border checkpoint of the Schengen countries *including **Germany* without a valid visa she/he is running the risk of being immediately returned.
