The German consular office in your home country will inform you whether or not you need a visa in order to participate in the IWU. You can find contact information for the consular office on the web site of the German Foreign Office: . In case you do need a visa, your visa application will require a “Letter of Invitation” by Fulda University of Applied Sciences. We will send you that “Letter of Invitation” as soon as you have registered and paid the registration deposit (see Registration).

Please note: Visa processing takes six weeks on average, or more if appointments for visa interviews are in high demand in your country. If you apply for your visa too late, you might not be able to attend IWU.
