Entry Requirements

Can foreign ACHEMA participants enter Germany?

It is generally possible for trade fair participants from abroad to enter Germany even in times of COVID-19.
No travel restrictions apply for travellers from EU member states and from countries on the so-called positive list.
Trade fair participants from all other countries can also enter Germany, as they are considered business travellers with an urgent need to travel.
ACHEMA participants from these countries must provide proof of their participation in the trade fair when applying for a visa or respectively when entering Germany:

  • Employees of exhibiting companies must present a confirmation of their participation in ACHEMA from the trade fair organiser (DECHEMA).
  • Visitors to the trade fair must present their entry ticket to ACHEMA and additionally provide proof of an appointment for a business meeting with at least one exhibitor at the location at the trade fair.

Do ACHEMA participants need a visa?

A service to apply for visa application letters will be provided soon on this website. 

Is there a quarantine obligation or Corona test duty?

In Germany, quarantine regulations are issued by the individual federal states. According to these, people entering Germany from a risk area are currently generally exempt from the quarantine obligation if they enter with a negative corona test. If, when entering the country you already carry with you a test result, to be valid the test may not have been conducted more than 48 hours prior to entry. The test certificate must be written in German or English. Before entering the country, ACHEMA participants should check which quarantine and testing obligations apply in the respective federal state they are entering. ACHEMA takes place in Frankfurt/Main, which belongs to the federal state of Hessen.

We will update the information on this website as soon as new regulations are applicable.
