General Information


The official language at the IWGI2019 is English.

Passport and visa

A valid passport is required for the non-EU citizens for entry into GERMANY and the European Union. An identity card is sufficient for citizens of EU Member States. Please consult your local Consulate according to your nationality for specific details.

Advance travel planning and early visa application are important, since entry to Germany with a visa is subject to more intense scrutiny than was previously the case. We highly recommend that foreign participants contact their local embassy to find out what travel documents they will need to visit Germany.

If you do need a visa to attend the event, please apply for one as soon as possible!
