Information for passengers flying to Germany

German Immigration Requirements:

  1. Passengers travelling to Germany must be in possession of a valid passport signed by the bearer.
  2. Visa passengers with single entry Shengen visas are accepted only if visa is issued by a German consulate. Passengers holding single entry visas issued by other Shengen states are not allowed to enter Germany and may be deported. The first entry on multiple-entry visas should be made into the visa issuing country. Further entries on multiple visas can be made to any Shengen country.

The carrier reserves the right to deny transportation to the passengers not conforming with these requirements.

These conditions are entry conditions for the country, thus they are applied for passengers who have Russia – Germany – Russia tickets and visas, issued by non-German embassy and who do not have permission for transit on German territory. The information is not applied for transit passengers, going through Germany to other Schengen countries.
