Visa Requirements for Canada Passport Holders – Germany (Federal Republic of Germany)

A valid Canadian passport is required for Canadians visiting Germany. The passport must be valid for at least the expected duration of your stay in the country.  However, we strongly recommend traveling with 6 months validity on your passport at all times.

Tourist Visa: Not required (for stays up to 90 days within a 6-month period)
Business Visa: Not required (for stays up to 90 days within a 6-month period)
Student Visa: Required

*The 90-day period starts upon the first entry into any country that is part of the Schengen Area.

Extensions of tourist stays beyond 90 days are not possible. However, Canadian passport holders having a valid reason, such as education or employment may apply for a residence permit. In some cases, tourists who stay beyond the 90-day limit unexpectedly (e.g., due to illness) may contact the Foreigners’ Office (Ausländerbehörde) and tender their outbound ticket in order to get a certificate (Grenzuebertrittsbescheinigung) to be given to the border authorities upon their departure. Tourists who overstay and who do not have this certificate will be fined. For more information, contact the Foreigners’ Office Service Hotline at 030 90269 4000.
