Do I need a Visa to go to Arival Berlin?
Due to Schengen Agreement reached in 1985, the citizens of the Schengen member states can travel visa free throughout the whole territory. On the other hand, nationals of non-Schengen countries are permitted to enter the whole area with one unified document known as the Schengen Visa.
In July 2013 a decree was issued by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs that an invitation letter by the event organizer is as a rule no longer needed when applying for visa in order to attend an event in Germany.
