Schengen visa applicants (business visa applicants) will usually be asked to present certain documentation such as:
- a letter of invitation by the German business partner
- documentation of employment and salary certificate
- a letter from the applicant’s employer confirming the business purpose of the trip
- proof of travel health insurance
Where the entrepreneur personally applies for a Schengen visa (or business visa), documents such as a copy of the foreign company's entry in the foreign commercial register, articles of association, and bank statements from the last three months may also be required. German embassies and consulates, as well as Visa Application Center worldwide offer checklists and fact sheets with detailed information.
